Welcome to

Revolution Tattoo

Revolution Tattoo was established in 2004 by owners Omar and Cheri Gutierrez out of a need to create a shop that is equally artist and client friendly. We pride ourselves on the aesthetic of our shop which is very cozy, creatively inspiring and extremely clean.
Each of our 5 artists have very unique styles and will create custom tattoos for you as well as reproduction of any kind with their experienced guidance. We require a consultation for custom tattoos but we do have tattooers on hand to take walk ins. You can expect to be treated kindly by opened minded artists, listen to great music, have lively conversation and receive an amazing tattoo that will hold up for years to come.
Revolution Tattoo has had many successful art shows and events over the years but the space is now 100% focused on tattooing. Our curator Cheri Gutierrez has opened a new space next door called Sideshow Gallery.  Please see her page for info.
