I am originally from Lancaster, PA and was formally trained in tattooing at ``Tattooing by Skip`` in 1991-1992. I chose to move to the Washington D.C. area where I have been Tattooing for the past 20 years, the majority of the past 16 years at Red Octopus Tattoos, in Landover Maryland. It has been very hard to leave my ``tattoo family`` and wonderful clients but I have decided to open Grindhouse Tattoos to be closer to my aging parents and to spend more time with my children in my own studio where I hope they will study tattooing themselves someday. I would love to make your ideas into an amazing tattoo. Please come in and meet with me if there is anything I can do for you!
Hey, my name is Jacque and I've been tattooing since 2011. I started my apprenticeship at Red Octopus in Landover Hills Maryland and have surrounded myself with amazing artists ever since. This is my life and I love what I do. I strive to be the best at my trade and I know that in order to do that I can never stop learning... So I don't. No matter if you are getting a simple heart outline on your shoulder or a back piece that explains your life, every tattoo should be done with endless amounts of passion and be nothing short of perfection. So if you have an idea in mind or want to get some old work brought back to life .... Stop in, or just come by and say hi.
My name is Lars. I started my apprenticeship here at GrindHouse early in 2016 and have been piercing full time since late 2016. My goal is to make every piercing experience as quick and comfortable as possible and I`ve done everything in my power to do so. I`m always down to do some super cool stuff so come at me with all your crazy ideas. I`ll forever be looking forward to learning new techniques in piercing and body modifications. Swing by anytime to chat or add a little bling to that part of your body you`ve been thinking about for months.
Hey, my name is Jared. I am a full time artist and started my apprenticeship in mid 2018. I am originally from Sayre, PA and relocated here in 2014 to attend the Art Institute of York for Media Arts and Animation. With my education from school as well as the talented Kelly and Jackie I have learned a wide variety of skills that will help make your ideas a reality. I believe you can always get better, so you always need to try new things. Whether you are a returning client or you are getting your first tattoo, you will get the same level of care and precision. Come on in and say ``what`s up`` and make an appointment.
My name is Emily and I am a full time artist at the shop! I graduated from the Art Institute of York for Graphic Design in 2017 and apprenticed to tattoo under the wonderful Kelly and Jacque, our talented senior artists. I am a huge fan of the neo traditional tattoo style and organic nature designs. I appreciate any opportunity I get to dabble in those areas, but I`m down to work on any kind of piece! I`m always ready to try new things, hit me with your ideas and let`s do something fun soon!
Hey, my name is Shelby! I was born and raised in York, PA. I have always had a creative mind paired with a heart that wants to give every client an experience they love. I began working at GrindHouse in late 2017, studying under Lars who has taught me everything he knows. He and I bounce ideas off of each other and we are working on expanding our skill set as a team. My goal every day is to perform my best and to raise the piercing standards in Pennsylvania. Whether a client wants a unique modification or they just want a new piece of jewelry, I strive to supply skill and knowledge in all areas. I want all piercing clients to leave with the piercing they always dreamed of and knowledge that they were cared for properly and will be cared for well in the event they have aftercare questions moving forward. Come in, let`s talk about that piercing you have always dreamed of!
