Rooster Down Tattoo Gallery
The first thing you notice about Rooster Down Tattoo Gallery is the silence: there’s no buzz of needles, and no din of conversation. That’s because all tattooing takes place on the 100-year-old vintage home’s second floor behind the closed doors of five converted bedrooms. “It’s not the world’s tattoo. It’s yours. Share it when you want to share it,” explains manager Meilene Tipp.
The secluded rooms not only foster privacy, but a welcoming space to collaborate with resident and visiting tattoo artists such as multi-award-winning artist Graydon Payne and 13-year veteran Justin McCroy. “You have two options,” says Ms. Tipp. “You can tell the artists exactly what you want, or you give them the freedom to design it, and they’ll take it to the next level.” That commitment to achieving the next-level tattoo has led some of Rooster Down’s artists to pour more than 40 hours into one intricate, one-of-a-kind piece. Some draw upon their keen knowledge of color theory to design vivid color bombs, and others shade detail into complex black and gray tattoos. In addition to applying ink, tattoo artists Christian Arellano and Graydon Payne meticulously whisk away unwanted ink with EliminInk tattoo-removal services. As clients recline, the steady-handed artists tattoo a chemical into skin that binds with pre-existing ink and draws it to the skin’s surface, restoring the skin’s blank-slate status or clearing the way for the answers to next week's physics quiz.
Rooster Down Tattoo Gallery
Rooster Down Tattoo Gallery's artists see possibilities wherever they look. Blank skin becomes a canvas for intricate tattoos—vibrant portraits that wrap around arms, backs, and antlers. So when it came time for Rooster's team of artists to purchase a business, they took a similar approach and looked for another blank canvas. After much searching, the artists found their perfect location—a vintage home more than 100 years old.
With two stories, the classic house makes visitors feel more like guests than customers. Upon entering, the staff invites patrons to lounge atop a waiting room's leather couches and watch a flat-screen TV, which hangs directly above a fireplace. The team then leads patrons into one of several private tattoo rooms. Here, Rooster's resident and visiting artists—artists like Graydon Payne and Melissa Senesac—get to work away from any distractions, such as a right-bicep dragon tattoo coming to life and playing the left-bicep trombone tattoo. The artists' steady hands can emblazon bodies with vibrant custom artwork or, alternatively, use EliminInk tattoo-removal technology to restore skin to a blank slate.
