Billy Molina

Billy Molina

Billy Molina has been tattooing at the shop for over 5 years. Now full time, Billy works every day except Tuesday and Thursday.  Billy is diverse, he uses  solid linework with bold and bright colors and also is detailed oriented with small black and grey work.

Nico Navarro

Nico Navaro

Nico Navarro has been tattooing full time at the shop for 4 years. He is best known for black and grey, fine line and lettering. But don't think he is beyond doing color work, flowers or really just about anything. Nicos personality  quickly earns him many return customers.

Spencer Gachet

Spencer Gachet

We are happy to have Spencer as part of our team. Spencer has been tattooing for 14 years. He often frequents conventions and seminars giving him a diverse style. He won best color tattoo at The Catalyst convention in Vallejo and Best Small Color Tattoo in San Jose. Spencer is super friendly and has great communication skills.

Brendan Benstock

Don't be fooled by the youngest member of our crew. Brendan has been tattooing only 2 years but is making beautiful art and winning the hearts of many. Always up for a good laugh this young fellow is a fan favorite!

Lokelani Tupou

Lokelani quickly picked up the art of Body Piercing. I don't think she has met a customer that hasn't felll in love. Caring and patient Lokelani is a natural and a true jewel at the shop, always wearing a big smile!
