Nostalgia Tattoo Co.
A story spanning more than two decades gave rise to Nostalgia Tattoo Co., as owner and primary artist Mr. Scary moved from an education in graphic art to the world of body art. With no industry experience, Mr. Scary set forth on the road to inking skin, meeting his mentor, Uncle Bud Yates, along the way. Uncle Bud—a lauded artist and former president of the National Tattoo Association—proved a formative influence on Mr. Scary’s life and career, helping him land his work on the covers of three separate magazines all in one month. Though Uncle Bud was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2006, Mr. Scary proudly continues his mentor’s traditions, first at Uncle Bud’s studio and then at Nostalgia Tattoo Co., which Mr. Scary opened in 2011. Today, he and his fellow artists imprint skin with iconic tattoos that hearken back to the days when sailors ruled the contiguous 48, as well as with modern, color-saturated designs. In addition to fleshing out his portfolio each day at his shop, Mr. Scary lends his skills to the Ink-Eeze pro team and enjoys sponsorship from Fusion Ink and Borg Tattoo Machines.

About Nostalgia Tattoo Co.
When it’s a client's turn in the chair at Nostalgia Tattoo Co., they have a good amount of time under the needle during which to consider their surroundings. It should be some comfort, then, that the walls surrounding that chair are covered in a grid of awards earned by the shop and its staff. Spaces that might have otherwise been left bare flaunt original artwork and designs by the resident artists, some depicting grim, detailed skulls and others drawings of elephant gods. But the team's craft truly comes to life on the human canvas, as each artist's portfolio brims with classic designs, modern color-saturated pieces, and tattoos of the word "tattoo."
