Meet Our Team

Tattoo Artist - Christian


  • Our manager and head artist has an extensive art background in painting, illustration, and graphic design, so tattooing fell naturally in place. Whether you have finished artwork or need something created from just a stick figure sketch or even just your ideas he will work with you and give you just the tattoo that you envisioned. By having  such an extensive art background he is able to work in any tattoo style and can also do portrait pieces from your quality photographs. Christian is also an avid painter with many pieces available for sale.

Piercer - Ruby


  • Hi! My name is Ruby and Iʼm a piercer from Seattle, WA. Iʼve been piercing professionally since 2016, although my career started with an apprenticeship in 2014. Piercing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, and my favorite piercings are the ones that suit and accentuate the natural features of the individual. I aim to create the least painful experience possible, starting with open communication and making sure my clients are 100% comfortable with the process.
