In the Blood is THE tattoo shop in Pittsburgh! Justun is a great friend and has developed this tattoo shop into something very special. He surrounds himself with professional artists and sets his standards high. He has developed a calm, clean atmosphere that I would not hesitate to refer anyone to. We often receive compliments on our work and always refer them to our brother in the Lord! This tattoo studio provides a wonderful example of what your tattoo experience should feel like. You are not just another number here. Justun really takes the time to listen to his clients.
IN THE BLOOD is in my opinion the best shop in the Pittsburgh area. Justun did my first tattoo when I was 16 years old. I am now 23 and still get tattooed by him. He runs a tight ship there! Immediately when walking in you'll be greeted by a extremely friendly staff. All of the artists and staff are very skilled in their concentration as well as knowledgeable in their own area. Justun, Doug, Seth, Mike, and Will are all very kind and are always eager to talk and make you feel comfortable and welcome in their studio! I was extremely impressed with the overall look of the shop too. It has a very "old school" but classic feel with the timeless tattoo flash and the gallery style lighting in the lobby. There is so much to look at!
During the tattoo process Justun was professional and very concentrated. He made me feel comfortable and calm. There was always easy listening music playing and a great conversation too! Justun has 10+ years of tattoo experience and it really shows in his work and his attitude. He is always eager to make people feel at home. This goes for all the artists there as well.
I also really respect and love the vision of IN THE BLOOD and how Justun has tied Christianity into tattooing. Two things that are sometimes considered separate, are so easily molded together with this shop. You can truly feel the positive and friendly presence when you walk in!
All in all I would highly recommend this shop to anyone in the Pittsburgh area and even near by! Its a five star studio that is clean and classic. I wouldn't settle for any other shop on the South Side. Boom!
First Tattoo – I got my first tattoo at Body Bazaar. I was in PA for the weekend and decided that while I actually had money on me for once that I would go through with it. JoJo Davis was the tattoo artist and let me just tell you, he kicks ass. He was really cool about the whole thing and made my first tattoo experience great (when I get another one, I'll definitely drive 4 1/2 hours to PA so JoJo can do it again)
Funky neighborhood tattoo and piercing niche. – The Scene
Typical South Side first-floor nook-and-cranny layout transformed into groovy shop that features an interesting (to say the least) giant painting of an ear, and all the various piercings that one can have done on the ear. The waiting room is cozy and comfy, particularly the black leather couch. Decorated with a nifty combination of erotica art, posters of Marilyn and by Escher with a little red neon thrown in. Shake-your-booty music plays on a mini-stereo. Sit and read some tattoo mags for ideas while you wait your turn.
Tribal designs and butterflies are popular here. This tattoo place offers thousands upon thousands of designs to choose from, but will do custom work as well. Branding (yes, it's what you think it is) and permanent cosmetics are now in vogue as well.
Appointments are taken, but walk-ins are welcome. You must be 18 to become a canvas, 15 to get pierced with parental consent. Tattoos start at $40 and go up from there.
