The artists at Tried N' True thank you for your interest in getting tattooed. We currently employ two full-time artists. We offer all styles of tattooing ranging from black and grey realism to traditional, bold, and colorful work.
Ready for your first tattoo? You've come to the right place.
Have a bad tattoo? We can help in almost all instances.
Unhappy with your current artist? We don't disappoint.
Our goal at Tried N' True is not only to give you an aesthetically pleasing work of art, but also to ensure your comfort in a professionally sterilized, welcoming environment. Walk-ins are always welcome, but appointments are preferred.
We take the stress out of receiving a tattoo. From the moment you enter the doors at Tried N' True, you should feel welcomed and right at home. Even if this is your first tattooing experience, our no-pressure environment will quickly put you at ease; we provide humor and a positive atmosphere within our walls. We set out to make every client's tattoo a number one priority, be it a simple word or a full body suit.
This mentality allows all clients to gain trust in our expertise. We firmly believe that a tattoo is more than just pigment embedded within skin; it is an experience and a memory that will last a lifetime.
The laid back chemistry of Tried N' True Tattoo is what sets us apart from other tattoo shops. We are true to the roots of the trade. We hide behind no gimmick: no drama, no bullshit, just quality artwork.

Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!
DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
Walk-ins are always welcome, but appointments are preferred in most instances since there are only two of us. If it is something that you think may take more than two hours, it may be best to schedule an appointment.
We are always available for consultation be it in person or through our Facebook page.
I WANT A TATTOO BUT I’M ON A LIMITED BUDGET. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE PRICING?
Our shop minimum is $75.00. We charge roughly $100.00 per hour depending on design and style.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
On all appointments made, we require a 20% non-refundable deposit. In the event that you are unable to make your appointment, as long as there is contact made prior to the appointment time, we will happily reschedule and honor the deposit.
WHY DON'T YOU OFFER PIERCING SERVICES?
At this time, we feel it is best for our clientele to focus on just the aesthetic value of tattooing. We do not feel it necessary to have piercing services as we are strictly an art-driven tattoo shop.
