Shop Closure – May Renovations!

April 6, 2013 at 3:35 pm , by admin

Just a heads up – the shop will be closed for the first two weeks of May for much anticipated renovations. We’re growing a little too big for our current shop setup so the new floorplan will give us much needed space and better organization. We sincerely apologize for anyone planning on getting tattooed in Early May! Feel free to stop by once we’re back open (We’ll keep you posted about that) to check out the changes.

It’s true folks, Brian Wilson and Ryan Mason will be traveling to Reno for the Silver State Tattoo and Arts Festival May 10th – 12th. Both artists will most likely be working from a book of their own drawings. Email btwilsontattoos@gmail.com (Brian) or ryanscapegoat@gmail.com (Ryan) if you’re interested in snagging an appointment. If you’re at the convention please come check out the booth, say hello and make some lasting friendships!

We recently were informed that the stencil paper that we have been using for years contains lanolin .  We have spoken with the company and confirmed the contents, but as there are no workable alternatives to the stencils that we use, we are reluctantly removing our label as a “vegan” tattoo shop until we can find an alternative to this product.  As a shop that is trying to find responsible and ethical ways of providing this service in a non-vegan world we treat this business as a community effort and very much appreciate those who bring this sort of information to to our attention.  In the meantime all of the inks, soaps, and ointments we use are still vegan, we just don’t feel right advertising our shop as such until this matter is resolved.  We’re really sorry that this has escaped our attention and for those of you that received a tattoo from our shop in the past we’d apologize for unknowingly misleading you.  The stencil washes off after the tattoo procedure so anything that is still in your body is vegan.  Thanks for your understanding and continued support.

Dom from P-Mod Photographies stops by the shop!

This past May we had a very nice visit from a very nice Frenchman, Dom Pichard, the talent behind P-MOD Photographies. He took some amazingly good photographs of the shop and surprisingly, some pretty good photographs of us (we, as a group, do not photograph well). We are so thankful! Check out his work here.
