Our Story


When opening the first Expressive Ink in 2010, I wanted to open a tattoo parlor that catered to all types of people. I did not want to be that stereotypical shop or that hardcore place portrayed on TV and in the Movies. I wanted to be more than that scary, intimidating, dark place that some people still associate tattoos with. I want to be a place where anyone of legal age, class, creed or color could feel comfortable walking into. I don’t care if you are a biker, single mom, lawyer or a grandmother. If it is your first tattoo or your 50th tattoo. I don’t mind if you are coming in to ask questions.

My goal at Expressive Ink is to make you feel comfortable with what you are thinking of doing, your idea, and your artist. I know that if you are comfortable with the shop, the artist, their book of work and the price that you will be our customer for life and so will your friends and family.

“Your Skin is Our Reputation!”

Expressive Ink employs tattoo artists who can work with both, pre-selected catalog designs and original custom designs, as well as a variety of different writing styles and languages. At Expressive Ink there is no tattoo that is too difficult, complex, or large for any one of our artists to handle.

All of our tattoos are covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

To ensure continued satisfaction, we offer free touch-up and re-color services for all of our clients within the first 60 days of the tattoo (excludes high wear areas). Beyond that we are more than willing to work with you on touching up older pieces when you visit us for your next tattoo.
