Glenn Collins

I have been tattooing since roughly 2002. I have been tattooing here in Charleston, S.C. since 2007. I find that I work best, and my clients are the happiest, when I am given an artistic freedom to create for them on the subject matter that they want. This is what I do for a living and I make sure to give everyone my 100%. I put an immense amount of time and energy into research and creating a tattoo for a client. Most of the time when people are setting an appointment with me, it’s about a month’s wait. With patience, I will be able to get to you at my next available date and time. For anybody not willing to wait, we Do have other artists available and I have confidence that they will be able to assist you. You may check them out here, under “Artists”. I Do recommend that if you were referred to Me, that you may want to wait, so that you can get the same great experience and quality that the person who referred you did. The best way to get in contact with me would be to stop by the shop. I very rarely get a chance to chat on the phone or answer emails, because when I am at work, I am more than likely in the middle of a tattoo that someone is paying good money for. I want to offer them the same respect that I would to you, therefore I give them my full attention.I mostly love to tattoo stylized Japanese, traditional Japanese, American traditional, biomechanical, flowers and duh, SKULLS!!. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you have an AMAZING day!
