Aardvark Tattoo Company is an all custom tattoo shop. Every piece we do is drawn up one of a kind for the client. We specialize in portraits, photo-realism, new school, feminine tattoos, knotwork, lettering, and creating original artwork for our clients. Too often in the tattoo industry the client's desires are overshadowed by the ego of their artist. While this may result in a beautiful work of art, it rarely offers a satisfying experience for the person who will wear it for a lifetime.

We want to offer you something different. It is our goal to bring your ideas and sensibilites to the surface, even if they aren't the same as ours. Let us create something unique with you, for you. After all, isn't that the whole idea behind custom tattooing?
