We are open for business!
We will have some sort of open house / low-key opening party in May once we get all our signs and artwork up, but as of now, we are set up and ready to take appointments and tattoo! We are so happy to be back to work. For everyone who has been waiting as we set this place up, we appreciate your patience! We’ll do our best to respond to all the emails that have been sitting in our respective inboxes, but feel free to hit us up again, or come by the shop!
We’ve had a busy month and the shop has really come together. We’re looking at a couple more weeks to wrap things up. Recent additions include some fancy butt-rests and Chad the Golden Chicken-Dragon, all found by a stroke of luck for a steal at a thrift store. We put up curtains, some artwork, and a couple more mirrors. Got some rad signs from @old5anddimesignco, who is also making our big sign – can’t wait to see it! Our first batch of cards and stickers came and went before we could even get our doors open – more on the way! We’ve done a few tattoos on friends to test out the space and find out which supplies we neglected to order, heh. We can’t wait to start working! We’ll be posting an opening date as we get closer to wrapping things up.
More progress photos! Put up picture molding and neon lights, got a rad old light table and some fancy mirrors. Replaced the sink and light fixture in the bathroom. The Glam Reaper joined the crew. Learned that Brian is not only a tattooer, but an electrician and plumber as well. Sarah is tired of painting.
We’ve already had people coming to the door and we don’t even have a sign outside yet! No opening date set yet, but we’ll most likely open in April. Super happy and excited, and we’ll keep you posted!
Electric Cat Scratch Tattoos is excited to be opening soon in NW DC. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates!
