VOODOO TATTOO STUDIO'S

NEWSLETTER

Updated by Suzie, Business Manager

August, 2015

Voodoo-aholics!!!

We've been very busy this Summer - it's been great to see so many familiar faces and a lot of new ones too!  Not only has word-of-mouth been a blessing for us, so has our high rating on Google, Facebook, Yelp and other platforms.  THANK YOU to each one of you that's written a glowing review - we really appreciate it!!!  Making you happy makes us happy!

The most important message I have for you this time of year is DON'T FORGET TO PROTECT YOUR TATTOOS!  SPF 30 or above EVERY time you'll be out in the sun.  Good for your skin, good for your tattoos to look great long-term.   

If you're thinking of inking, stop in, call or email (voodootattoostudio@hotmail.com) today & let's get started!

See you soon!

xoxo  Suzie

 

COOL LINKS:  Resources, Amusement & MORE...

DESIGN CREATION:  

Voodoo Tattoo Studio is a "custom design" studio, however, we respect our clients' vision and taste, and encourage clients to show us anything that has inspired them (when words just aren't enough!).  Lex and Michelle will then create a design from whatever their client has brought in, specifically customized and personalized to the client's desires.  We would encourage you NOT to purchase any design online you'd like us to use as a reference:  simply email us the link with a description specifying the design (if necessary).  voodootattoostudio@hotmail.com

Here are some tattoo design resources/indexes:

Of course, you could utilize Google's Image Search:  http://images.google.com

We've found several websites that have many cool and unique fonts/lettering styles.  Here are a few links:  http://www.tattoofonts.net and http://www.tattoofont.org.  Print out or email what you'd like and we'll customize it until the design is exactly what you're looking for.
