Skin Factory Tattoo, a very popular Las Vegas tattoo parlour, have reached a massive milestone and they will mark their 20th anniversary in 2015
July 4, 2014 (Newswire.com) -
When Skin Factory Tattoo first opened its doors in 1995, shop manager and owner, Eddie, didn't dream that they would still be open 20 years later. However, that is what has happened.
In 2015, Skin Factory Tattoo will mark its 20th anniversary and cement their place as one of the longest running tattoo parlours in Las Vegas. This is a massive achievement for a tattoo shop that had a modest opening.
In the beginning, they had one tattoo artist and they could only offer tattoos. Eddie thought that there was a gap in the market for a tattoo parlour that was customer orientated and friendly, which provided the highest quality of artwork.
At the time, tattoos were becoming more popular and mainstream, but the shops still had the reputation of being run down and only certain clientele visited them.
This put people off and Eddie saw this. He wanted somewhere that was clean and proved the stereotype of tattoo shops, wrong. He chose the right time to open and he has been successful ever since.
There are now 5 artists working in the flagship store and they offer other forms of body art, including piercings. Business is booming and some of the artists are booked up months in advance.
Skin Factory Tattoo is very proud of their history and they believe that they will still be open for business when they are celebrating their 50th anniversary.
At the moment, there are no plans in place to celebrate the 25th anniversary, but they do want to mark the occasion. They advise their regular customers to keep an eye on the website for an announcement about the event. They hope this announcement will be made before the end of the year.
A company spokesperson added, "Here at Skin Factory Tattoo, we are all very proud of the progress of the shop and that we have made it to the massive milestone of being open for 20 years. We are all confident that this is evident of all the hard work that we have put into the shop, over the years. We hope to be around for the 50th and even 100th anniversary of the company."
About Skin Factory Tattoo
Skin Factory Tattoo is a tattoo parlour based in the Las Vegas area. Eddie, who wanted to fill a missing niche in Vegas, founded the company in 1995. He felt that the area needed a tattoo shop that was affordable and provided the highest quality of custom art work on skin. When he opened the shop, he wanted to have the friendliest tattoo shop in town, and the tattoo artists pride themselves on being customer oriented and friendly. They wanted their tattoos to be about the experience of getting the tattoo as much as the tattoo itself. You can visit their website at http://www.skinfactorytattoo.com
