It's not just a tattoo - it's an experience
At Prohibition Ink Custom Tattoo we want to make the process of getting a tattoo as memorable as the artwork itself. Our focus is on providing an elevated customer experience beginning with the initial consultation all the way through to aftercare.
Not your typical (or stereotypical) tattoo shop
Our shop is designed to be a relaxing retreat where everyone is made to feel welcome. One of our clients described the atmosphere as "a badass spa."
We offer a smoke-free environment, tea and refreshments, vegan and kosher ink options, and medical grade aftercare.
What you WON'T find at our shop:
- Walls filled with pre-drawn flash. We want every tattoo to be as unique as the client who wears it.
- Sensory overload. We strive for a relaxing, inclusive atmosphere. Although we do have an awful lot of stuff.....we hope it will give you something to look at during a long tattoo session.
- A judgmental "tattitude." Tattoos are for everyone (18 and older, please). Whatever your reason, whatever the design* - if you want a tattoo, we want to help you.
*with a few exceptions - see Where We Draw the Line
What you WILL find:
Artists who want to provide a unique, gallery-worthy work of art and shop owners who are committed to making the tattoo experience a positive one.
We believe the ideal tattoo experience is a collaboration between you and your artist. We offer free, no-commitment consultations and welcome you to share your vision and let our artists offer their professional expertise on how to best achieve it.
Please call, email or stop by anytime. We'd love to see you.
