About Us

Ghost Ship Tattoo was founded in 2012 by a group of talented artists and friends who were looking to build a custom tattoo studio that held the art form of tattooing to a higher standard than what many collectors are used to. We don’t carry any flash books in shop, instead we work diligently to make all our tattoos 100% custom to fit our customers preferences.

We are the area’s only fully disposable Tattoo Studio, which means everything we use to tattoo our clients, sans machine, is a single use item. We strive to uphold the highest standards of cleanliness and customer safety and are open to any questions or concerns that our clients may have about the tattoo process.

For inquiries and pricing, we encourage all clients and potential clients to stop by the shop and work with our staff on answering any questions you may have. We base most of our pricing by size and body location, based off a pricing chart that is available in our shop at all times. Otherwise for larger pieces we charge by the hour at a flat rate of $125 an hour. We do not price over the phone, nor do we book new appointments over the phone (unless it is a work in progress) A standard non-refundable deposit of $50 dollars is required to set up and new appointment, and we prefer to do this after our client has had a consultation with their desired artist about their tattoo project.

For any other questions, comments or concerns; please stop by the shop 10-10 daily or 12-8 on Sunday and talk to one of our friendly counter staff!


Cliff has been my artist for the past few years and I really have no desire to go elsewhere. Every project that we've started has far exceeded my expectations. I really enjoy the shop too, very comfortable, definitely a chill atmosphere.

Steve Bradley did my sleeve and I don't stop getting compliments everywhere I go. He took my idea and translated it far better than I could have imagined. Super satisfied, I recommend him to all my friends and family.
