Welcome to Pink Elephant Tattoo & Piercing Studio


About Us

Tattoo Artist

We have 5 full time tattoo artists here at Pink Elephant.  We pride ourselves in being a custom shop, and truly care about our end results.  If you have an idea in mind and it might not work the way you hope, we will work with you to explain and help you understand what would make it better.  We care about the longevity and full life of the artwork.  


We have 2 piercers here at Pink Elephant, Mark and Emily.  We pierce baby and kids ear lobes, as well as lots of other ear piercings, facial piercings, navels, and nipples.  Stop in and talk with one of the piercers to get something fun!

Things to bring with you for piercings-

If you are 16 or above you must have a current state id or passport with you.  

If you are under 16 you must have a parent or guardian with you they must have an id and a form of id for the person getting pierced.  If last names match things that work would be State id, Insurance card with parent and child name on it, School id, birth certificate. 

If last names do not match you must bring in a birth certificate along with another form of id.  

If it is a guardian situation we need documents stating the guardian arrangement along with picture ids.  

Any questions about this please contact the shop.  

Tattoo Removal

We specialize in non laser tattoo removal.  Mark and Luke take care of the tattoo removal process.  Luke works on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.  Mark can fill in on different time slots that do not fit into that area.  Stop in or call to set up a time to talk with them about the process and estimate.
