Westley

An Iowa native, I got my start in Des Moines. I began my career as an apprentice in 2006, and have progressed from the original shop to work with a variety of amazing artists to learn from. Not content with just one or two specific styles, I have jumped at the chance to try new forms of art, and push myself to be able to do a good job on any tattoo that comes my way. Whether its a color piece, black and grey, memorial, new school or old, I want to be able to do it. With a wide range of technique and skill, I take pride in my versatility and my professional demeanor.

Jack

Jack has been tattooing since 1993. He has been published in multiple magazines, and has won several awards for his tattooing. Jack does truly enjoy doing all styles, though he is most well-known for his photorealistic black and gray. He believes that the customer should have a good idea of what they want, but is more than willing to help them realize their full vision.  Although he’ll use whatever means necessary to give you the best tattoo, Jack usually prefers to work freehand. That involves drawing the design directly onto the skin with a non-permanent pen before applying the tattoo.

Do you do Walk-ins?

Yes, when the time is available, we are happy to do tattoos without an appointment. It depends on artist's availability and the tattoo design.

We prefer to have you set up an appointment but if one of our artists has time, we can sometimes get you right in. It is always best to give us a call before stopping by. You can reach the Des Moines Studio at 515-255-4430.
