Our artists bring nearly 100 years of street shop tattooing to Chesapeake. Walk in our door and experience the style, feel and vibe of the old style tattoo shops.

We offer same day tattoos unlike most shops in the area and we do it without compromising on design quality.

We are fully re-open and working within the Virginia guidelines set out by the Governor.
