PIERCINGS

Our piercers are trained professionals with years of experience. Healthiness is our highest priority, we keep it clean!

GOOD VIBES

We spend a lot of time in the shop so we keep it sweet. A place you want to hang out. Don't stay too long get your ink and get out, just kidding.

CLEAN EXERCISE

At Asylum, we don't cut any corners on health and wellness topics. Our space is clean and we make certain all our guests have the same level of quality care.

EXPENSIVE SKIN

You pay a lot for your skin to be how you want it so don't get tattooed by just anyone. You might have to wait but it will be worth it.

INK MASTERS

We keep some of the area legends within our Asylum doors. We also have up-in-coming stars with close to ten tattoo artists on site.
