We are re-opening, June 17th!


Our Darkside Family is beyond excited to finally be able to go back to work and see all of you fine people once again! We are working diligently to reschedule all missed tattoo appointments, and book future tattoo appointments. We are currently working by appointment only, no walk-ins.  Unfortunately at this time we are not booking piercings, and will not be offering piercing services until further notice. Getting used to our new procedures, and responding to all of your messages will take some time, so please be patient with us.

There are some new procedures and regulations we are following at Darkside, to help protect everyone from the spread of Covid-19. We are doing all we can to keep everybody safe. We are currently open by appointment only, and will be going over these requirements with you, when we call to confirm your appointment. We have, and will continue to, keep our shop to the highest standards of cleanliness and sterility in the industry, and provide a safe environment for all who come here.

Darkside would also like to welcome Manny Morell and Nick Trammel. We couldn’t be happier to add these guys to the crew, check out their work on instagram - @magicmanny13 and @nicktrammeltattoo

In light of current events, we would like to say that we stand in solidarity with the movement for equality. Our mission has always been to create a warm, welcoming environment for everyone to come, and be a part of something special, and to give each and every client a positive experience, that they will never forget, and cherish forever. Everyone is welcome, and all of our clients, artists, and friends, make our shop the type of place that feels like home. We will not tolerate hate or bias of any kind. We are firm advocates of equality, love, and kindness.

Thanks for your love and support
