Tattoo Station

Most of our tattooing is custom and we do it by appointment. We encourage you to call ahead to make an appointment for a consultation. Cover-ups and reworks are also available.

We accept walk-ins when possible.

We use single service needles and pigment on all of our tattoos. All of our equipment is sterilized in an autoclave.
