We are first tattooers

Our first and primary desire is to make lasting tattoos that are original and individually created specifically for each customer.  We believe that each person is unique as should be their tattoos. We strive to provide a professional yet relaxed and chill environment. Each tattooer has his or her own style and artistic expression. Please look at our artists portfolios to pick the artist that best suits your taste. If your not sure what artist can best serve you, then come down the shop and speak with us and we can better direct you.

Why is the shop named Persecuted

I, Israel Hughes, named the shop Persecuted Tattoo to raise awareness of people around the world who are experiencing persecution for what they believe, what color they are, or where they come from. Everywhere we read and hear the negative opinions of one to another all the while not recognizing that we are all humans of the same genetic composition.


If we do nothing we also persecute in our hearts knowing that love can change yet hatful and selfish minds influence society. We are a blessed nation but not all share in that blessing when those who have much don’t help those with little. 


So after receiving recent news of another shop asking me to stop using my name because of an unknow trademark infringement of the word “inkslingers”, I felt compelled to go through with the name change.


Still the same artists and still the same owner and even better tattoos.


Thank you and God bless.
