What made you decide you wanted to own a tattoo shop?

Junior: I'm young and I saw an opportunity. I went to school for music and advertising design, I landed a job in construction and knew it wasn't for me. I knew I wanted to do something with music and/or the arts and I thought why not try tattooing. I put everything I had into this shop, heart, soul, money, passion and I made it into something I envisioned. I take 100% pride into everything I do here.

We warranty are work and we don't cut any corners. We offer the best ink, jewelry and cleanliness in area. Businesses consider themselves a 10, we consider ourselves a 15 in service.

What do you like most about Buffalo?

Junior: Everything - the seasons, the smell of food in the air around the Holidays and more importantly family is family in Buffalo.

What do you like most about tattooing/owning your own business?

Junior: I love meeting new people, I love people, I love seeing the outcome from paper to the skin and I love being on this personal adventure with each person that walks into the shop.

Do you have a favorite style you like to tattoo?

Junior: Realism and Neo-Traditional/New School

Favorite memory while having your own business?

Junior: They all stick with me, but if I had to pick just one it would be the day I opened the doors. I worked hard, my team and I did it together and we put all of our heart and soul into this shop.
