Exciting news this Month!  We are celebrating Emily Graven having been with us for 2 years now!  We would also like to Congratulate Emily, having officially Completed her Tattoo Apprenticeship here at TATTOO MAFIA!

Emily served an full time apprenticeship directly under Senior Artist and Studio Owner, Chris DeLauder. With Chris having started in 1995, she's had the opportunity to learn under a true master in the art of tattooing. Her apprenticeship consisted of training through the Red Cross in BBP, First Aid and CPR. Including the proper coverage of everything in the work area. Proper set up and break down of work areas. Cleaning and sterilization using hospital standards. Next she was trained in all styles of tattoo art including traditional, new school, fine line and realism in both color and black and gray. She was required to produce multiple flash sheets of custom artwork each week to be reviewed and critiqued by the entire studio staff. This curriculum is rigorous, intense, and thorough. Once her work on paper was up to par, she was trained in digital art & graphics as well as using a professional camera set up for before and after images of her work. She was also required to learn and use different styles of tattoo equipment including machines, needles, tubes, cartridges & pigments. She worked with different items for months to get her coordination down using a tattoo machine before actually tattooing a person. Everything required of her was to assist her in learning the tools to becoming the best artist she can be. Including Customer service and dependability. She started working with clients in January of 2017 and has quickly picked up a following. Emily worked her first couple tattoo conventions this year. Ms. Emily is a natural artist and has a bright future ahead of her in the Tattoo Industry. You can submit artwork and reference to: tattoomafia@ymail.com For scheduling, please call us at 302-730-3022.

Tattoo Mafia recently updated our Official Website.  Changing the background and Company logo at the top of the page.  We've also added many new images to each artist portfolio and updated Red Cross Certificates for CPR.

A Video link was also added to the Main Menu.  This has all of our Videos posted and easy to view right on our site without having to log into Youtube.


This summer we added new display cases out front.  Both displaying high quality body jewelry & aftercare products.  

We've also added 3 Ipad air Tablets with digital release forms for easy check in.

We added all new frames for artist certifications.  Our most recent class done in house with a Red Cross Instructor.

All of our Booths are being repainted this year just to keep everything nice and bright.  The piercing booth was just finished this past week.

Our artists Emily & Curtis still have openings left in 2017.  Ian is booking into 2018 but, is still taking on new clients and projects at this time. 

Chris & Lisa are taking names and information for anyone that would like to go on a waiting list.  When their schedule is less than 6 months out, our studio  will contact those on the list in order as they are submitted to offer openings.

Our Tattoo Aftercare kits come in 3 different options of Bacitracin ointment, Emu Oil or Tattoo Therapy with Emu Oil & Aloe. 

All kits come with instructions on aftercare printed on the side.  Including color & scent free soap & lotion for all your aftercare needs in one little take out box! 

A FREE sticker with every purchase!

Individual bottles of aftercare are also available in a variety of sizes. 

Pure Emu Oil is perfect for both healed Tattoos and those in the process of healing.  The oils help bring moisture to dry areas and speed healing as well as reduce itching.  The uses for Emu Oil go far beyond care for tattoos.  Including stretching the earlobes and aftercare for healed piercings.

Neilmed wound care wash is recommended by the Association of Professional Piercers with all new body piercings for proper aftercare.  It's perfect for those hard to reach areas.  It's also great to have for daily cleansing of healed piercings. 

Tattoo Therapy with Emu Oil includes Aloe to further assist with reducing redness, inflammation and irritation in fresh tattoo work.  Also wonderful for sunburn & razor burn!
