QWhat type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?AWe operate a tattoo and piercing studio that also sells a wide variety of body jewelry ranging from hand-carved wood and bone to acrylic and stainless steel.QWhere are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?AJosh is from North Dakota and Dru is from Georgia. We have both been in Summit County since 1996. Josh has worked in other shops for nine years and decided it was time to open his own.
QWhat experience do you have in this field?AJosh is on his ninth year of piercing and has pierced in Breckenridge and Oregon and has been at the Purple Lotus in Frisco for the past four and a half years. Rebecca, our tattoo artist, has worked at Tatu-Tattoo and Ageless Arts in Chicago and Popcorns Tattoo in Philadelphia. We will also have guests artists from Th’ink Tank Tattoo in Denver come up periodically.QWhat sets your business apart from other similar business?AWe operate a no-attitude, friendly and sterile studio with a comfortable atmosphere so customers can hang out and decide what they would like to get tattooed or pierced. We also have a large jewelry selection with more than 700 pieces. Special orders can always be made.
QWhat types of customer do you hope to reach in Summit County?AWe offer something for everyone, from someone looking for a small flower on their ankle to a whole back piece or maybe a navel piercing or just a simple ear. We cater to everyone that is interested or even those that are just curious. All are welcome to come inand look around.QWhy did you choose to open where you did?AWe knew we would get good foot traffic being located near The Liquid Lounge, Cecilia’s and Burke and Riley’s Irish Pub in La Cima Mall. Breckenridge also needed a tattoo and piercing studio to cater to the growing population and tourists.
QWhat are your plans for your company’s future?AWithin the next year we will be adding another tattoo artist and eventually would like to leave a great lasting impression on every local and tourist that comes to our friendly studio.
