A new member to the team

So I'm happy to say we have added a fourth tattooer to the roster.  Cookie over at Pop's Tattoo in Kingston, NY will be sitting in with us on Monday's. At this point all full time resident tattooers have a pretty jam packed schedule. With Cookie coming on we will be able to accommodate some of you fine folks a little sooner. Cookie has been tattooing in the Hudson Valley for a number of years, most notably at Pop's where he will remain full time. Please come down to the tattoo parlor and welcome him, take a seat in his chair and get tattooed if you'd like. You won't leave disappointed.

NY Empire State Tattoo Expo

So we are just a month away from attending the 1st Annual Empire State Tattoo Expo put on by Stefano Alcantara and the fine folks at Inked Magazine. We are so thankful to have been invited. Adam, Evan and Joe will be setting up with Chris Tavino from Hat City Tattoo in Danbury. The convention is close by and is being held at the Westchester County Center for the Arts. We hope to see some familiar faces and make some new friends.

This coming week we will be hosting Ellen Murphy for three days before she heads out west to Portland to make tattoos out there. We are looking forward to having her talents with us at Graceland Tattoo.

Things Happening: The guys are headed to Rochester.

It's been a while since our last post, for that we apologize. The shop has been very busy making tattoos and piercings. We've also made a few improvements to the parlor. Graceland Tattoo was fortunate to have Bryan Sanchez from Columbia visit and bring his unique brand of "water color" tattoos with him. we have also secured a few other guests. Ellen Murphy will be here for 3 days only. She will be making tattoos with the guys May 27-29th. Ellen is a seasoned tattooer who is well rounded and strives to make quality tattoos. She is doing some traveling before she winds up settling in Portland Oregon. Towards the en of August we will have Joe King from Off the Map Tattoo in the house. Joe has great talent and a really good insight on what makes an interesting tattoos. Stop in and book some time with either of these fine folks.

We will be working the Roc City Tattoo Expo in Rochester, NY once again. Adam, Joe and Evan will be taking walk ups all 3 days. Adam will be bringing a number of paintings that are available for purchase. You can also use them as inspiration for a new tattoo. Roc City has proven to be one of the best tattoo conventions around and we feel very fortunate to be a part of it again this year. If you would like to get something specfic and would like to reserve some time you can send an email to the artist you want to work with. Otherwise, you can find us hanging at booth with good friend Hunter Spanks from Have Fun Be Lucky in Baltimore, Maryland. Hunter will once again be sharing space with us. The Convention May 2,3,4 in Rochester, New York.
