Artists

Ryan Gatt
Shannon Toohey
Pauly Piff

Ryan has been tattooing for fourteen years. He has been creating art ever since he could hold a pencil.

From the artist: 
“Tattooing caught my attention young and never let me go. I am self taught and truly lucky to do what I love every day. I honestly never thought tattoos and art would allow me to live the beautiful life I do and for that I am endlessly grateful. I enjoy all types of tattoo art and try hard to be able to do anything that walks in the door. Full color, 3D-realistic and surrealistic are my specialties as well as Japanese tattooing and portraiture. The day you stop learning is the day you should put down your machines.”

Rebecca Bettz

Rebecca is an artist down to her core. She uses her background knowledge of anatomy and graphic design to create fun, unique pieces.
From the artist:

“I've been drawn to the arts ever since my preschool teacher told my parents, 'Your daughter's social skills are lacking, but hot damn she has an artistic inclination.' Not that I didn't know already, JK OMG! I shared a womb with my twin brother Derek, and now I want to share my art with you. I have a penchant for traditional tattoo art, but I love to throw a UFO or Bigfoot in the mix whenever possible. Also, I believe in Bigfoot. I am very passionate about artistic self expression, and hope to make all of your wildest tattoo dreams come true (within reason). Come let me tattoo you and together we can make the world a more creative and accepting place!

You could say Shannon was born for this career. She is the granddaughter of Don & Flo Makofske, creators and owners of National Tattoo Supply.
From the artist:
“I grew up tracing all the old timers flash on their shop floors. Thanks to my grandparents I was blessed to meet many of my idols and inspirations, all of which had a hand in fulfilling my dreams to become a tattoo artist. I studied at FIT before my apprenticeship with Rich Ives at Steel City Tattoo in Colorado. I have been so fortunate to work with many great artists and now have a home with the Salvation family where I live and breathe art. I am tremendously grateful to be able to wake up everyday knowing that my dreams have come true.”

Pauly began apprenticing under Ryan Gatt at just 20 years old. Over the past 7 years, he has honed his skills as a realism artist.
From the artist:

"I have been drawing and painting since I was a little kid.  It was the only hobby I had and the only thing I was ever really good at. Since I was young, art was the most important thing in my life. To this day, I am constantly observing every little visionary aspect this world has to offer, which subconsciously transfers into my artwork. I live and breathe art, and it’s all I think about. My goal is to make sure every piece of art I do, whether it’s a drawing, a painting, or a tattoo, comes out perfect and flawless.

Andie Brittaine

Andie is our resident piercer. She loves to make clients happy by giving them the bling they deserve!
From the artist:
"I have been part of the tattoo industry for several years & have always been completely intrigued by it. While working along side industry professionals & helping manage shop atmospheres, I have strengthened their businesses & realized there would be nothing more exciting for me than to actually be a part of it. Having always been educated in many trades, I took up the piercing profession. I feel it is extremely original & fitting for me. I look forward to working with many fun & interesting people."
