New YouTube Channel

Submitted by DaVo on Mon, 05/07/2018 - 18:56

The Skin Kitchen and The Axiom have combined to create a youtube channel that will focus on Tattooing and Body Piercing. In the future, you will find videos of tattooing, discussion, and DaVo's Body Piercing information videos. Also, in the near future, we plan on streaming the artists at their work and maybe a question and answer streaming video cas& t. 

So, to avoid missing out on any new events or content, head over to our channel page and subscribe. 


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.


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.

Body Piercing by DaVo

DaVo became the first professional trained piercer to operate in Iowa when he started piercing at Creative Images in Des Moines in May of 1994. After leaving Creative Images in February of 1995, he went on to open his own studio the Axiom in March of 1995 in what is now called the East Village area of Des Moines. In October 1999 he closed the studio on E. 5th St. and moved into Skin Kitchen Tattoo where he and The Axiom Body Piercing Studio continue to operate today.
