Erick has been tattooing since 2006. He is an award-winning artist, yet a lifelong student; always searching for new techniques to add to his toolbox. While he has a penchant for black-and-grey work, Erick also enjoys producing color tattoos, and loves the challenge of a cover-up!
Cleanliness and sterilization are of the utmost importance to him, as well as adhering to the guidelines set forth by the health department.
Unique, custom work is Erick's preference. Flash pieces are reserved for certain occasions, such as Friday the 13th. You will never see your exact tattoo on another of his clients!
Erick is an artist that keeps his clients wants and needs in mind. Whether getting a first tattoo, covering an old mistake, or fading the reminder of a scar, he will do everything possible to insure the client is happy with the finished product.
In 2018, Erick achieved his dream of owning a tattoo studio when he opened shop in Middletown. His second location opened in Louisville's Highview neighborhood in 2020.
Ashh may be this city's biggest secret when it comes to the tattoo industry! She has been inking fleshy canvases since 2012 and continues to hone her craft at our South location in the Highview neighborhood.
Sometimes called the "font master", the crispest lines and vibrant, packed color are her specialties, with a proclivity for new-school, though she can create any type of design to fit the client's desires.
Ashh is sponsored by I.E.D. Apparel.

Erick's wife, Rikki, wears every hat in the studio other than "tattoo artist": scheduler, social media manager, graphic and website designer, marketing specialist, bookkeeper, and even janitor! If you're speaking with an online representative - it's probably her!

This raven-haired beauty was handpicked by Inkslinger Erick to show exactly how good his cover-up skills are. All of her many existing tattoos are slowly going away and we can't hardly wait to see the finished product!
