the shop

We are a custom tattoo studio and art gallery in Salem MA dedicated to creating art that pushes boundaries in the world of tattooing. We are striving to create a unique experience for our clients and guest artists that redefines the definition of a tattoo studio. We want to create a place that everyone feels welcome, a place that inspires creativity, a place of growth, and acceptance.
