As the Summer winds down we are thankful for the opening of the shop on Union. We look forward to a great fall season (which not only is my personal favorite season but it's the best season to get tattooed in). We are continuing our search for additional permanent artists. We will continue to have special guests in the shop to bring a different style and flavor to the area. But as far as permanent artist we are looking for specific types of tattooers that have a very strong portfolio and a flair for all things art. We will continue to push the envelope in New Bedford and offer some fantastic opportunities for art in the community so keep an eye our for us New Bedford.
