Working with tattoo artist Danny Reed towards creating a space that felt modern its openness yet classic with its woodwork was so rewarding. Not every job allows one the opportunity to show off so many facets of a skill set, but Danny, being a meticulous artist in his own right, encouraged the development of unique touches which would help to set his shop apart from the rest.
Custom doors, built-ins, desks, tables, mill work, inlays, columns, arched window trim are all present in this complete from scratch build-out. The red stained oak combined with Danny's extensive collection of nostalgic and current tattoo art combine to create a space that feels as much like a tattoo museum as it does a working studio for some of the city's best ink artists.
