We also host a large number of visiting artists from all over the world so if you’re looking for a very unique style we might just have a world-class expert tattooing with us at the moment or in the near future. From large to small, custom to flash our artists will draw from their immense and diverse backgrounds and skills to create a tattoo you’ll love. This is what makes us one of the best tattoo shops in Seattle.
