COMMUNITY & COOPERATION

Opening a tattoo studio, an art gallery, and a music venue in the midst of a global pandemic might seem like a bad idea- but that's exactly what we managed to do. We believe in the power of community and we are dedicated to using this space to do good by our neighbors, so we cast hesitation to the wind and used our focus on the future to inspire us. With the help of our friends, we will be ready to welcome the community to our space by 2021.

Doug has over 15 years of tattoo experience under his belt, and is the new President of the Steel Valley Arts Council. He is active in both the arts and music communities in Pittsburgh and throughout the area. He is versed in many tattoo styles, with focus on a blending of traditional and abstract arts.

Kyle has been in the basics of his apprenticeship for 1.5 years, though he has been an accomplished artist most of his life. With experience in silkscreening, digital design, painting, and illustration, Kyle's finely crafted personal style shows through all of his techniques.

Ronnie is the newest apprentice, though she has been studying tattoo art on her own time for a few years. From momento mori inspired illustrations, paintings featuring the brutality of nature and mythology, to traditional American tattoo style- Ronnie has gone through many thematic changes and is excited to grow and flow on her newest apprenticeship journey.
