We are artists; designing custom tattoos in a comfortable and creative environment

At DORK Tattoo Parlor we strive to be the most unique and inviting tattoo shop around!  Whether it's your first tattoo or your fiftieth, we know that getting permanent art on the body is a very important undertaking.  It's our mission to show respect to each and every customer, while providing professional and original tattoos.

We tattoo in a clean and healthy environment.  With the understanding that, for many people, getting a tattoo can be a mental and emotional stress, we've created a shop that aims to reduce these anxieties with a colorful and open floor plan.  We combine this open and creative environment with years of tattooing experience and professional knowledge.
