Tattoos from your mind to your skin

Unique tattoos designed by trained artists

Design style tattoo with elements highlighting the words "Discipline" and "Freedom"

We love tattooing and expanding our skills of design and execution. We offer professional service with attention to detail in a private setting.

Factor Studio Tattoo is home to two artists that love the challenge of creating designs with inspiration. We strive to better ourselves and our service to you. 

We want to be a factor in making your tattoo idea reality, by expressing what’s in your mind, on your skin. If you want something a little different we have good equipment and creative backgrounds, we try to make every design original and unique.

Give a picture, a sketch, or even a single word of what you want, we can create something for you. Contact us, one of us will email or text you with the next steps. If you like what you hear we’ll go from there.

How much will it hurt?

No one knows exactly but you. Everyone experiences pain differently, and pain sensitivity varies across the body. What’s more important is your personal tolerance for pain.
Most clients find tattoos less painful than they thought. Many liken the sensation to a cat scratch. Uncomfortable, but bearable. A few even like the sensation. Regardless, we will take our time to work within your threshold.
