After 25 busy years, we'll be Retiring and closing our studio in May 2018

 The new owner of the building (where our studio has been located since opening in '93) has let us know that he's going to turn our studio into office space for his construction business.
Since it's not feasible to relocate after 25+ years (being closer to retirement at this point in our careers); we'll be retiring and closing our studio, Marks of the Spark Tattoos, in May 2018.

*As of May 2018; we're now retired and have closed our studio.

*Many Thanks

to all of our clients over the years; it was great to meet and work with everyone! ​​
