From Our Editors
Deep Roots Tattoo & Piercing has been serving Seattle’s University District since 2003, with a second shop located north of Seattle in the Alderwood Mall area. The flagship U-District space gives off a cool student-friendly vibe, which includes lots of glass and posters of tattoo pieces advertised like fine art. The shop is home to a trio of tattoo artists and several piercers, each bringing their unique artistic aesthetic to the work. There are a range of creative choices for the discerning client, from simple pieces or cover-up jobs to full body concepts and less-than-mainstream piercings. Artists are good about talking over after-care tips and any other concerns, and guests are invited to peruse the shop’s range of distinctive jewelry.
