New clothing added!

What a great winter it has been here at Ink Assassins and in Erie, PA.  The weather hasn’t been too bad and Spring isn’t too far off in the distance.  Things are pretty much status quo here, which is lots of great tattoos & piercings getting done!  Thanx to everyone who has been braving the brisk winter breezes and coming to see us.   We predict it’s going to be a great year and look forward to seeing many of your smiling faces.

We’ve just updated the webstore and added a few new items that we haven’t had before such as zip up hooded sweatshirts and girls shirts.  There’s also a cool new design for all of you old ’80s skateboard enthusiasts.  Check out the webstore here for more info.  Everything is available for mailorder or just stop by the shop!

We were lucky enough to recently be seen in a cool new book called iPhoned Erie.  All of the photos in the book were shot and edited on an iPhone.  We have a few copies left for sale at the shop or through our webstore.

We must have been on Santa’s “nice” list because back in December he stopped by along with some elves!

Fall updates

Lots of exciting news!  First off, we hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their friends and family.  Christmas will be here before you know it and so will lots of that white stuff floating down from the skies above.  Take note, gift certificates or an Ink Assassins shirt would sure make for a great present! Wink… wink…

Starting things off, we have a new, fine young gentleman among the ranks here by the name of Kevin Collins.  He’s an extremely talented tattoo artist & painter that recently relocated to Erie, PA from the grimy streets of Philadelphia.  This sick tat making bad boy worked at Philadelphia Eddie’s Chinatown Tattoos before making the move across state.  You can check out his portfolio by clicking here and better yet stop in and get a tattoo from him!

We have some new rad shirts in stock that are now available at the shop.  If you live outside the Erie area we have added a new WEBSTORE for online ordering.  It also includes some one of a kind original artwork, limited edition prints, and aftercare products.  Speaking of aftercare we now have packs for sale at the shop for your complete tattoo healing.  It includes ointment, anti-bacterial soap, and lotion.  One stop shop!  We’re also all stocked up on mouthwash and body piercing spray as well!

The last bit of exciting news is that the With the Light of Truth books are now out and features both EMS & Pat Haney as well as Ink Assassins alumni Justin Jarrell & Dave Quiggle.  We have a few available at the shop or online.  The book came out amazing and we were proud to be a part of such a great project!

With the light of truth – book release

This October will see the release of a new tattoo book entitled “With the Light of Truth”.  The 256 page book will feature a flash sheet, tattoo portfolio, and interviews with 60 different international tattoo artists that live a straight edge (drug free) lifestyle.  Two of our crew here at Ink Assassins, EMS & Pat Haney, are among those included.

The book was compiled and produced by Dan Smith from L.A. Ink / High Voltage tattoo who was also recently seen on air sporting an Ink Assassins shirt!

Pre-orders are up on their site and include a limited edition print & packaging.  We will also have a small number of books available here at Ink Assassins next month.  We are very excited to have been a part of this amazing project!
