Tis The Season…

k-witch-hatNo, not THAT season... its finally Fall and the Halloween season officially kicks off next weekend!  One of the reasons we love being in Salem, MA is this amazing time of year, filled with witches and bats and so much more.  We love to see our yearly halloween clientele, and love to meet new halloween-loving folks visiting the Witch City! We do, however, want to remind everyone that, if you have an appointment with one of our artists, please be sure to give yourself PLENTY oscreen-shot-2016-09-25-at-2-26-38-pmf extra time to get into the city and find parking.  It can be a real nightmare this time of year, especially on the weekends.  We hate when clients lose time on their appointment because they are running late due to traffic problems, so be sure to plan in advance for the delay, especially the closer we get to Halloween weekend. If you are visiting the Witch CIty this season and will only be here for a few days, we definitely recommend you call or contact us through the website to prebook your tattoo appointmentscreen-shot-2016-09-25-at-2-28-24-pmt, even for something really small, because we book up quickly on the weekends especially, and if you want to come in for a walk-in, come in early in the day to grab a spot.  We also have a lot more availability for walk-ins during weekdays. Please don't hesitate to call the studio at 978-744-9393 if you have any questions about getting tattooed at Witch City Ink!  

Halloween Season is over and We Survived!!

Reflection of the crowd in the studio window Halloween season is always a crazy time of year here in Salem, MA and this year was no exception!  The insanity began the first week of October and kept us entertained and swamped the rest of the month.
The crowd the  first weekend of Halloween season!

The crowd the first weekend of Halloween season!

We truly had a blast tattooing fun Salem and Halloween related tattoos on visiting tourists and also really appreciated the patience exhibited by our regular clients who ended up having to deal with unexpected crowds and the crazy parking situation all month long. We love wandering through town and seeing all the amazing decorations for Halloween and the Fall. JaesunDuggan_Pumpkins Jaesun started the month off by adding a fun ceramic jack-o-lantern to his station to add some holiday spirit JaePumpkinDecor Here are a few fun tattoos Jae got to do this year for visitors who wanted to forever memorialize their trip to Salem: JaesunDuggan_Walkins JaesunDuggan_Walkins-2 JaesunDuggan_Walkins-3 JaesunDuggan_Tourists JaesunDuggan_CreepyScenery2 JaesunDuggan_MichaelMaskJaesunDuggan_SugarSkull on HandJaesunDuggan_SalemWitchSilhouette JaesunDuggan_Halloween-Knuckles JaesunDuggan_GoosebumpsMaskWM Steve got to do some fun halloween pieces, too, including this cool Hocus Pocus portrait: SteveGillespie_HocusPocus Needless to say, it was a fun month, and we were so happy to see our annual visitors, but we are happy to slow down and enjoy the fall in this small New England city by the water!  With the crazy crowds gone for the year, we are excited to get some locals in who have been waiting patiently to get tattooed!
