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 pride ourselves in creating custom tattoos for our clients,and for this reason we do not carry any flash books in our studio.

We are the area’s only fully disposable Tattoo Studio,everything used by the artist to tattoo you will be single use, excluding their machine. 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.

Our hourly rate is $150 an hour. For all pricing inquiries, we encourage you to stop by the shop and work with our staff on answering any questions you may have. We do not price over the phone or via email, nor do we book new appointments over the phone (unless it is a work in progress). To book an appointment we do require a face to face consultation with the artist of your choice, during which you will discuss placement, sizing and any other important details.A standard NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is required to set up an appointment,the minimum deposit is $60, all custom and hourly appointments require a $150 deposit. All deposits are determined by artist, amount can vary.

For any other questions, comments or concerns; please stop by the shop and talk to one of our friendly counter staff! You can also give us a call 757.486.2137.


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.
