Who we are

 

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, cover ups, 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 sensibilities 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?
