Celebrating 9 Years of Graceland Tattoo

Tuesday February 14, 2012

On this day back in 2003 (February 14th) I opened the door of Graceland Tattoo for the first time. In those nine years we've relocated twice; each time to a bigger and better space never moving more than a half a dozen store fronts away. Graceland Tattoo was a one man band inside 400 square feet and now has 2 other very talented tattooers, an amazing body piercer, an awesome shop manager and a great part time counter person. We have hosted some great guest artists like Tim Mueller, Hunter Spanks and Ty McEwen. We have those gents coming back and other great artists coming through in 2012 including Nathan Kostechko. The up coming March issue of Skin and Ink Magazine chose to feature Graceland Tattoo in an awesome 5 page spread. Needless to say I am very grateful. Thank you to all our friends who have come in to Graceland Tattoo making all our good fortune a reality.

Personally, I got hitched, had two awesome daughter and life is good.
