HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS !! Happy September Tattoo & Piercing Family !! So, as per usual, we have had quite a few things going down at the shop !!

2016 is already 2/3 complete !! We can't believe that the end of summer is already upon us !! Soon it will be fall and the leaves will start changing !! With that being said, we are preparing our shop for 2017 !! We have a lot of amazing things coming for the Tattoo Mafia family in the upcoming year !!

We would like to welcome our newest addition to the Tattoo Mafia team, Brittni Andrews !! Brittni is apprenticing under our Head Piercer Codi Lyn Canasa. We look forward to her growth and are excited to see what the future holds for her piercing career !! She will also be our full time Assistant Manager.  We've already had quite a few clients mention her passion and great attitude, both in person, and in reviews.

Last month our large body jewelry order was placed with Anatometal.
We will keep everyone posted as soon as the order arrives.
Each piece is made to order so we appreciate your patience!

At Anatometal they believe in a quality product that will stand the test of time.  Extreme care is put into each piece of jewelry throughout its stages of conception.  From the use of implant grade materials to hand polishing, they take the extra effort to ensure your jewelry is flawless.

Tattoo Mafia will be the first & only studio in our area to carry jewelry from Anatometal.  Anatometal is also associated with the
Association of Professional Piercers.


Book now to get tattooed at one of these awesome conventions next year!

We will be working 4 CONVENTIONS NEXT YEAR !! We are so excited to announce that we will be working the D.C. Tattoo Expo, as well as the PhiladelphiaBaltimore, & Wildwood NJ Tattoo Conventions !!  Contact us right away if your interested, openings are limited and going fast.  Chris & Lisa are both booked for the Philadelphia Tattoo Convention.  We still have some open time with Ian & Will for those of you who want to get tattooed in Philly.  Otherwise, we still have slots open for the other 3 conventions.

We look forward to getting some great ideas, and entering those pieces into some of the contests !! If you would like to submit your tattoo idea to one of our artists, please take a look at the dates listed below, and if you are available and would like to get tattooed, please submit the following:


(1) A reference picture of what you would like (more than 1 is ok)
(2) Placement (where on the body it's going)
(3) Dimensions (approximate height and width measurements, PLEASE do not put "same size as the picture," we need dimensions)

Please include which convention you are requesting, and which artist you would prefer in the email !! Thank you for checking us out and good luck to everyone who submits their ideas.

P.S. The more original the idea, the more likely it will get selected. We are not going to book for 100% of the time available, so that we can leave some availability for walk-ups and clients who didn't get pre-booked but still want to come give us a visit and possibly get a jammer :)

We hope everyone has an incredible weekend and thanks for all of your continued and encouragement !!
