August.

Been a little while since we last checked in! Just wanted to let everyone know what was going on at the shop! 

Nick, Tim and Tyler will be tattooing in Hinckley, Minnesota at the Grand Casino for the 26th annual tattoo you convention. That convention is this weekend (August 25-27) and we will be taking walk ups! Call the shop if you'd like to speak with one of us about the convention! 

Tim and Tyler will have a new 53 page book of flash they have painted over the last few years available at the convention and at the shop. The book has HUNDREDS of designs and is sure to have a design for nearly everyone. We are always happy to do one of the designs off our walls, and this way we can share with artist we know around the nation! 

Dan our apprentice has started doing small tattoos on folks he knows. Soon he will be able to do small tattoos on clients willing to let an apprentice do something on them. These pieces will be discounted and we will let you know when he is looking for customers! 

Nick is currently booking into October/November. You can get in with the other artist a bit quicker but we all book a little way out, so make sure if you want a spot and know the date that you reach out to us and set something up. We are happy to take walk-ins and usually have the availability to squeeze in small/medium pieces daily, so make sure if you get the itch to call or stop in to see if one of us can help you out! 

We recently updated some of our galleries. You can view recent works by all the artist. Keep your eyes out as we will keep updating over the next few months, we have some catching up to do from a busy summer. 

Tyler and Ally are our two newest artist and they are both settling in very well. We would appreciate it if you checked out their work and if you are interested, contact them about a tattoo! We really feel we have rounded out the shop perfectly and can now do any style of tattoo that a customer may request. We aim to be the highest quality tattoo shop in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We also strive to have customer service and an atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable. If you have and questions or concerns please call the shop and talk with us! 

Last but not least we got some new shirts made. Our good friends at Green Dream Screen Printing here in Sioux Falls knocked this one out of the park. The design was made by our own Tyler James. We did a small run of shirts (sizes xs-xxxl) and do not plan on doing another run of this design. If you are interested in getting one stop in the shop or give us a call if you are unable to stop in. 

 

We are also currently looking for a receptionist. The hours would be 11-7 Friday and Saturday. This would be a paying job (as well as tattoos when time permits). Duties would include helping with everyday shop needs such as answering phones, paperwork, cleaning, helping customers and generally helping keep the shop moving smoothly. Must be 18+. Applications can be picked up at the shop.  As always we want to thank you for being the best customers we could ask for. Thank you for keeping us busy with projects we have a ton of fun with. Hope to see you all soon!  -Nick, Tim, Jon, Tyler, Erin, Ally, Rob, Dan

Mid July.

We have been busy around the shop and this makes it a bit more difficult for me to update the page, but we certainly can't complain about being busy! 

We have spent the last few months putting together a crew of tattooers that can offer you the best tattoos in Sioux Falls. Recently we have a couple new additions that rounds off the crew perfectly. Tyler James will be staying with us permanently and we are excited to have him. Tyler now has his work on the page for you to view. We encourage you to check out all of our artist work as we pride ourselves on the ability to offer the highest quality work of all styles under one roof. Tyler is an extremely well rounded artist with a keen eye for detail. We have also added a Talent artist named Ally Rae. Ally spent the last few years in Sioux Falls learning the craft and recently joined our team. I will get her work up as soon as possible for you to check out. Ally is a wonderful artist that enjoys multiple different kinds of work and has some really great drawings at the shop you can check out! Please check back over the next few weeks to view some of her work! 

We are happy that our brothers/sisters of Prophecy tattoo will be back in their shop within the next week, but we are super sad to see them go. It's been really great forming new friendships and learning from one another. The shop is sure going to be different without them around, but their new shop is beautiful. We will hopefully be working on some cool projects together going forward and will make some announcements about that in the future. 

We as always want to thank you all for keeping us busy. We simply would not exist without the support of wonderful clients. We encourage you to stop in, call or email us and set up a consultation or appointment for your next tattoo. We will catch you all soon! 

Mid June.

Again we have been busy. I apologize for the lack of updates around here. 

Construction is still going on and we are still thankful to our faithful customers for navigating around it. You can now get in our lot from the 49th street entrance or the Louise entrance. If you are entering on Louise you have to use the furthest driveway east of our shop. We want to thank you all for making it through construction with us. When it is done, we are planning on doing another if it fits its $50 day. 

Late notice here but we will be having a flash Friday party at the shop this Friday. All flash painted in house will be on special. We are confident we have pieces to fit just about any budget. Tim and Tyler have painted hundreds of designs over the last few weeks and we want to tattoo them. This special will be by walk-in only, no appointments. We will be running this special from 12pm until we are done tattooing folks who want them. 

This year is our 15th anniversary as a shop and we are planning a late summer/early fall celebration. We can't wait to release more information to you as it comes. 

I will be doing a big update on the portfolio pages so keep your eyes out for some of the new stuff we have been working on. 

As always we want to thank you for making us Sioux Falls Premier tattoo shop, we simply couldn't do it without Sioux Falls Premier customers! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

P.S. You can still catch the Prophecy Tattoo crew tattooing out of our building. We will let you know when they have their shop done, they are hoping to be back in their shop in July! 

 

Almost June!!!

Almost June!!!

We're going to be open Memorial Day and running a special for walk-ins! Fits for $50! If the design fits in this circle it's $50 (quarter for scale). First come first served so come by the shop on Monday to secure your deal. Have a safe weekend!

Our good friends at Prophecy Tattoo had a fire in their shop that left them without a place to work until construction on their shop is done. Luckily we had the space for them. It's been a blast having Jeremiah, Tyler and Lee doing tattoos with us. If you have been looking for any of the prophecy artist, you can call or stop in our shop, we will let you guys know when their shop is done. 

Along with the memorial day special Tim and Tyler (and whoever else has time) will be running a "flash friday" special on the 16th of June, if this goes good we will try it again on the 23rd. We want to give clients a chance to be able to walk up, choose one of the hundreds of hand painted designs we have at our shop, and get it for a fair price. This is a throwback to how tattoo shops worked in the old time, before cell phones and google. I will post a few recent photos at the end of this blog. 

We have all been busy and we are all taking appointments for the summer. We are happy to take walk-in clients when we are available to do so. If you are interested in making an appointment, or want to see if we have walk-in time, please don't hesitate to give us a call! (605) 373-0123

We want to thank you all for being loyal customers, we are proud to have the best tattoo clients in Sioux Falls, and work hard to bring you the best tattoos in Sioux Falls. Keep your eyes on our facebook for more details on specials, recent tattoos, and other happenings. 

 

April and May!

Construction won't give us the blues! 

We have been busy around the shop taking care of our loyal clients and new clients. Tax time always gets busy for tattoo artist, so we thank you for being patient with us and allowing us a extra week or two to book your appointment. Please forgive us if we have forgotten to get back ahold of you, and if you feel you might have been overlooked or forgotten about, please do not hesitate to get ahold of us and we will make sure you are taken care of! 

For clients who have not been to our side of town for a while, we are in the midst of some heavy road construction around our shop. If you are coming from the west on 49th, you can park in the Pier one parking lot, but please be respectful and try to take the spots closest to our parking lot. If you are coming on Louise you will use the last entrance on the east side of our strip mall and drive around to the shop. We know this is not ideal, but we are promise that we will all be happy with the results. If you are confused with how you can best get to the shop, please do give us a call! 

We are really excited to announce we will be having Chantel Cherie from The Happy Pincushion in Watertown joining us once a month. She will next be here May 20th. You can view her work at www.facebook.com/thehappypincushion She is extremely talented and we are excited to have her down once a month. You can contact her directly through her facebook or call her shop if you have questions regarding availability. 

We have all been busy as usual and have you all to thank for it. Nick has been traveling doing some really great guestspots and visiting shops and friends of new and old. Tim has many sheets of new flash that are available for tattooing (see below) as well as paintings at the shop for sale. Tim, Jon, Erin and Rob are still booking parts of May and June, and Nick has his book open for the summer months. If you are interested in getting some work done, please contact us through the "contact us" tab on top, or give us a call at (605) 373-0123. 

You can keep up with new tattoos on facebook @ www.facebook.com/permanentaddictionstattoo or on Instagram @permanentaddictionstattoo

February 26th, 2017

Its been a minute since we have update. Tax time has come and we are busy tattooing! We thank you for making Permanent Addictions one of Sioux Falls premier tattoo shops. We will continue to do our work as advertised, Clean, Bold, Bright and Always Permanent. 

If you have been in over the last few months you may have noticed a few changes. Our good friend and award winning tattooer Jon Gamache joined the shop and we are very excited to have him on board! Jon worked with Nick and Tim previously at Permanent Addictions, so it felt natural to get the old crew back together. You can check out some of Jon's work on his page above, we will be adding more to the gallery soon, so keep your eyes peeled! He also has a portfolio at the shop that you can stop and see anytime! You can inquire above if you have any questions regarding Jon and his scheduling. 

Starting Wednesday we will also have another friend and award winning artist Erin Hoogendoorn- Bennett to our shop! Erin has over 10 year experience and has a way of always doing nice work while making her customers laugh. Erin was apprenticed at the same shop as Nick and Tim were, so again, there is some history with us tattooing together before. Erin has her portfolio on her page you can find above, and will be available by appointment and taking walk-ins when available. If you are interested in getting set up with Erin please call the shop (605) 373-0123, stopping in, or emailing the shop (permanentaddictions@yahoo.com) 

We still have T-shirts available, they have been moving so if you are interested make sure you don't wait until they are all gone! We can send them out if you are out of state and interested. They are $20 locally and $25 shipped. 

Nick has been busy tattooing and spent a week tattooing at one of our favorite shops, Electric Dragonland in Hopkins, Minnesota. It's an honor for Nick to be able to tattoo at a world famous shop with some of the most gifted artist in the midwest. Tim is tattooing by appointment and taking walk-ins whenever available. He has painted hundreds of designs that you can stop down and check out, or would be happy to draw something custom for you. You can also visit his website at www.timjewelltattooer.com. Rob is working on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday all day and by appointment on Monday. If you are interested in his work, please contact the shop for his availability. 

Don't forget, there is not a single style that we are not interested in doing. We have a unique crew and its put together the way it is so that we can offer any style at any time. There is no design too big or too small. Color, or black and grey. Traditional or Realistic, we are here to serve Sioux Falls with the best tattoos in the region. If you are unsure which artist is best, contact us and we can help steer you in the right direction. 

We will post soon with more photos, the March flash special and a few other pieces of news! 

Thanks Sioux Falls! 

Permanent Addictions Tattoo Parlor,

February 2, 2016

Hello all! Just checking in to keep everyone updated on what we have going on around the shop! February marks the beginning of tax time which means we will be extremely busy. If you are planning a tattoo stop in and make an appointment as soon possible. We of course will still be taking walk-ins whenever we possibly can. 

Nick will be heading out for a week to tattoo with our good friends at Electric Dragonland in Hopkins, Minnesota. If you are in the area and interested send us a message to get set up with Nick in Minneapolis and avoid the long drive! We will also be updating our convention schedule soon, so keep an eye out for that, as you will likely be able to catch Nick and Tim out and about this year. 

We had our good friend Brogan at Green Dream Screen Printing make us some pretty killer shirts, we are really happy to have supported a local business and great friend. We have xs-xxl available at the shop for $20. American made, and high quality, we chose our shirts carefully! 

Tim started a flash special in January and had great luck with it. The deal is he will make a new sheet each month, sometimes all original, sometimes redrawn designs from tattooers of the past. This month the flash is all redrawn and repainted designs from early tattooer Amund Dietzel and for this month only you can get a discounted price on the designs. Call the shop, message the shop or stop down to set up an appointment with Tim. 

 

Along with the special of the month, we constantly have new original paintings and flash available for tattooing, and/or available as framed paintings for you or a loved one to cherish forever on your wall. Stop down anytime to see our one of a kind selection. We aim to keep our shop fresh with original art for you to look at and get ideas for your next tattoo from! Here are a few examples of whats been happening in the paint room. 

We as always appreciate you all choosing to visit us, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask any questions, you can use the contact us tab above to reach us!

We want to thank you all for your continued support. Don't forget to be patient with us as tax time looms, its a very busy time for tattoo shops. With that being said, if you know you are planning work in the next month or two, we really suggest trying to make and appointment if you can. We do pride ourselves on being able to take walk-ins, we also have to take care of our appointments first, and our books are filling up faster and faster the closer we get to February and March. We will continue to do Sioux Falls premiere tattoo shop, and we can only do that with Sioux Falls premiere tattoo collectors, thank you all so much. 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

We hope you all had a very safe and happy holiday season. We have been busy at the shop making some changes. As some of you may have noticed we are no long offering salon services. We decided to move on and focus on tattooing. We thank the ladies involved with the salon for their hard work! We plan on using that space to feature guest artist from other shops in the midwest and beyond. 

We are also happy to announce we have added a new full time artist. Tim Jewell was one of the original Permanent Addictions artist before moving to another shop for some time. After some talking, we decided it would be best for Tim to rejoin the team. He will be tattooing by appointment, and also taking walk-ins. Tim enjoys traditional American tattooing, but with over 14 years experience is willing and able to do just about any style of tattooing. Stop in and meet Tim and set up an appointment today. 

You can now find us on Instagram. Our username there is Permanentaddictionstattoo. We will be trying our hardest to keep you up to date with tattoos and art we are doing there. You might have also noticed our new logo, we'd like to thank our friend Alix for her hard work. If you are interested in some design work, let us know and we will send you her way! 

If you are here, you obviously see we have updated the website! We encourage you to keep visiting as we are planning some fun things for 2017. Monthly specials on designs we are making, weekly specials on specific designs and tons of other really new ideas we have been working on. Follow us on Facebook and keep an eye open here for all those details! 

Nick and Andy are still tattooing full time also, you can stop in and visit with them, check out their work and make an appointment. Rob is working Thursday-Saturday currently and is accepting walk-ins or appointments, you can stop in those days to chat with Rob and get a new project started. 

Our apprentice Dan is learning more and more everyday, and he is a real sport putting up with all of us! He has currently been working on flash sheets, which will be designs he will be able to tattoo when he has reached that point in his apprenticeship. 

We thank you all for your support, we couldn't be as successful as we are without the help of our customers. Thank you for choosing us for your work, and remember, a referral is worth so much for folks in our industry. Take some cards and help spread the word!
