We’re happy to have our good friend Berto back in the shop! He’ll be with us Thursday, August 1st through Monday, August 5th. You can contact Berto directly for appointments at Tokatattoos@gmail.com, and check out more of his work on ig @tokatattoos.
It’s cherry blossom season! We’ve got a bunch of DC-themed pieces of flash – cherry blossoms, DC flags, rats, cockroaches, etc. – all starting at $50 for the month of April. Come by the shop to check them out!
❤ Happy Valentine’s Day – It’s Flash Me February again! ❤
Now through the end of February, come in and get one of our 25 pieces of love-themed traditional flash, starting at $100.
❤ Flash is up in the window – come by and check it out! ❤
It’s that time again…
Get a Halloween-themed tattoo for up to 50% off during the month of October!
You don’t get to pick which one!
Last October, we drew up 60 Halloween and horror-themed pieces of flash – this year, we’ve added more! If you missed the game last year, here’s the deal:
During the entire month of October, come in, choose a size category (small, medium, or large), pay the set discounted price, pick a number from our pumpkin bucket, and then you get the tattoo with the corresponding number on the flash sheet. Prices start at only $50!
Not happy with fate’s first choice for you? Trade in your number for $20 to choose again. Don’t like to take risks? You can still get any of our Halloween flash at a discounted price without playing the game!
Flash sheets will be up in the shop starting October 1st!
April is over, and so our cherry blossom flash special has come to an end. We got to do so many of them, but nobody got the cockroach one! Oh, well. There’s always next year. At least I got to do a couple of the rats.
Electric Cat Scratch Tattoos recently celebrated a birthday! The shop turned one year old on April 21st. We didn’t want to make a big thing out of it since 1-year-olds rarely remember their first birthday party, but we did have an unplanned gathering of just a few of our favorite people last night and said cheers! Thank you to Sheila, David, John, Chris, Julie, Warren, Jessica, and Ian for a super fun night, and to Julie for making amazing cupcakes! Thank you to all of our clients and friends and family for your support, referrals, patience, and encouragement this past year – we love you, and we couldn’t do it without you!
Happy 1st, ECS!
A huge thank you to Berto for being with us for a week at the beginning of April! It went by too fast! It’s always great to have you in the shop, and we look forward to the next time you’re in.
If you missed Berto, don’t worry, he’ll be back! In the meantime, check out his recent work and follow him on ig @tokatattoos!
In celebration of cherry blossom season, we’re doing another flash special from March 22nd through the end of April! This one is all DC-themed pieces (the usual – cherry blossoms, DC flags, rats, cockroaches, etc.), starting at $50. Come by the shop to check them out!
Sheila is tattooing!
Sheila is currently doing $20 apprentice tattoos – primarily line work and solid black fill, and depending on the design, limited shading and color. She has a sketchbook at the front desk of available designs, some of which are also on her website, or she can draw something for you!
If you’re interested in being a part of Sheila’s learning process, please check out her portfolio at forkspit.com, and then come into the shop for a consultation so we can review your design and placement. No first timers, sorry! Because she’s in the early stages of learning, we need to be sure that anyone she’s practicing on already has experience getting and healing a tattoo, and is comfortable with a potentially less-than-perfect piece initially. We also ask that you be available to come back in in 2-3 weeks once the tattoo has healed so she can make any needed repairs. Being able to see how a tattoo has healed is immensely helpful in improving technique and consistency.
Flash Me February
Our Flash Me February special flew by! If you missed this one, check back soon for our next holiday special.
And now for the monster at the end of the post…
If you’ve been concerned by our absence at the bar, it’s because… We got a puppy! Nazgul is 4 months old and is already a dramatic, opinionated little butthead, just like our other dog. Please enjoy some photos of our adorable little monster.
