Custom Drawings & Appointments

Appointments usually require a non refundable deposite from $50-100. It is deducted from the price of your tattoo. Good standing repeat customers are not required to leave a deposit. 

Custom drawing of your tattoo is FREE if you get the tattoo the same day. Some clients want to see the drawing before hand or think on it for awhile. For those and big custom work a drawing fee of usually $50 or $100 is taken and non refundable.     When you get the tattoo, that drawing fee is deducted from the price of your tattoo. You lose nothing. If you decide not to get a tattoo that fee pays for the time spent working on it for you and the drawing is yours to keep.


I offer deals on multiple tattoos, BFF, family/group. Ask and save.

Discounts for repeat customers, military, police, and fire. 

About Us

Shop history

Established in 1974 by Charlie as the place to go in the valley for quality tattoo work at a reasonable price. In 1995 Frankie Ray apprenticed as been here ever since as his home shop. "Keeping it in the family" Charlie retired after 40 plus years and Frankie Ray bought him out to continue providing custom tattoos, high end quality work in a fun attitude free shop at a great price.

Private shop open to the public

Focusing on custom tattoos, from big to small in a fun one on one atmosphere; Frankie Ray made the decision to take the shop private and no longer offer piercing or a selection of "ego" artists to our many happy clients.
