Meet Our Team


Tattoo Artist -Alex

  • My name is Alexander Clark, originally from Miami Florida. Including apprenticeship I have been  tattooing for 8 years. I specialize in Black & Grey realism, Portraits, Hyperrealisim, Lettering and Neo-Tradional Styles.


Tattoo Artist - Charlie

  • Watching countless hours of Bill Alexander with his "almighty brush" had a big influence on me. After high school I joined the Navy, became a jet mechanic and a helicopter rescue swimmer while still finding time to paint in beautiful Key West, FL.
  •  After the Navy, I moved to Connecticut from Syracuse NY and 36 years later ..... I had the opportunity to explore tattooing as an art form, apprenticed for 2 yrs. Then received my Lic. at the age of 59. lol. I'm leaning towards traditional styles. I hope to use the available time I have allotted to kick out some kick ass tatts!


Tattoo Artist - Andre

  • A graduate of SCI (Stratford career Institute) in architectural design, I like to think that I have an excellent eye for detailed rendering and perspective. I have received certification of completion and license in mechanical drafting, an experience that helps with geometry and compositions.
  • I am working on ways to improve my tattoo skills such as watercolour paintings and drawings, as well as random flashes to decorate my workspace. I'm currently living  in Meriden, CT.

Piercer Wanted!!!

  • We are currently looking for a Piercer, either Full or Part-time. Part-time is fine as long as we can establish a consistent schedule to tell clients. Located near several colleges we get steady calls asking for services. If you like a relaxed & drama free workplace please check us out.

Don't let the crazy snare face fool ya its just Alex and I wanted to put a picture here.......
