NEW ARTIST!! MIKE SCHULER
As of the start of 2018, the Des Moines Tattoo Collective welcomes new artist Mike Schuler. Clean tattoos, rad dude. Please check him out!

NEW STUDIO NAME
As a tattoo studio owner, I consider my primary goal to facilitate an eclectic, clean, inviting space for myself and other artists to each run their own businesses. Unlike more conventional shops, we don't have a receptionist, or shop phone number, or regular posted hours. The autonomy of it is what I love! However, we've been needing a unifying name for the space for some time now, which is what I'm excited to announce. Carrie Black, Abby Enhörning, Sydni Geyer (+1 final artist in 2018) are all a part of what is to be the DES MOINES TATTOO COLLECTIVE. Starting down at the Market Building over four years ago on my own, to where the studio space is now has been a continual evolution of physical space, direction, intention. Thank you clients for your support! Literally, could accomplish none of this without you.
Im excited and grateful to announce that at the start of the new year, the beautiful and talented tattoo artist Abby Woodford will be moving to Des Moines, and tattooing with me at my studio.
Please take a minute to check her out!!
