Welcome, my name is Tom Cross. As many of you know I have been in Broomfield doing business for many years. I have tattooed for 36 years, 27 in this area. We have been in our present location for 4+ years. A 1953 Sinclare Gas Station now a tattoo/artgallery/aesthetician salon/ home base for Hueso de Perro and Lemo-napalm. whod a thunk? My daughter Meredith works at the studio. She tattoos, predominantly personal pieces, as well she has a salon for facials, skin care and permanent make-up. .work, portraits, and trying to convince me he is Anna is also a  tattoo artist, who is an excellent arttooist. She and Meredith both do our piercing. As for me, I am working fri/sat, and by app.  I have developed psychic abilities to help you determine what you want, tattoo abilities that will hopefully someday be be determined as what you wanted, and I provide visual distraction for you in the form of artwork throughout our studio. We are just now setting up our blogsight, so please revisit it to see on going work, and drudge through my ART INKLETTERS, tales of human and my tattoo history. Thank You, Tom

Do you pierce children’s ears?

We certainly do.  We are a kid-friendly shop and will pierce ear lobes at any age (with parent consent of course), starting at infancy.

Who handles the design for the tattoo? How does the process work?

Tattoo design is primarily up to you as the customer. If you have an idea in mind, go ahead and hunt down images online.  We want the process to be organic and flush together your thoughts with our expertise.

Come by and talk with one of our artists and we can help you decide on size, placement and details of the tattoo.  If you truly want a unique piece, our artists would be happy to draw up a one-of-a-kind design for you.
