MARS INK TATTOO STUDIO
ALL CUSTOM DRAWN TATTOOS
APPOINTMENT ONLY DUE TO COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
Welcome to the Red Planet! MARS Ink was once a distant dream that turned into a successful reality by 2 individuals who were passionate about art and tattoos, Mike and Cynthia. We are a clean, humble, and friendly tattoo studio. We truly care about our clients, and take the time to listen to their wants and stories behind each piece to make sure we exceed clients expectations from sketch to skin. Swing by and visit our studio. Let's collaborate and bring your tattoo ideas to life.
I create, therefore, I am. I was born and raised in the Bay Area. Art is and always has been my passion. I am a former graffiti artist. My dream of owning a tattoo shop came true in Feb 2016 with Cynthia. I apprenticed under, Jaye, the owner of Soulution Ink in Sacramento. He believed in me and my art. I consider myself a well-versed artist who can blast colorful pieces and black & gray work. I like the challenge of doing successful cover-up tattoos. Come in and checkout my portfolio. I would love to hear your tattoo ideas and reinvent your skin to tell your story.
CYN aka "BOSS LADY"
Society tends to stereotype against people with tattoos. I want to break those stereotypes. We are NOT all gangsters, thugs or criminals. Actually, we're the complete opposite. We are God fearing, educated, professionals and entrepreneurs who put our FAITH & FAMILY FIRST. I consider myself a tattoo enthusiast. My 3/4 sleeve was done by Shige of Yellowblaze Tattoo Studio in Japan. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business, and I'm also a Registered Nurse. My business savvy and Mike's talents along with our PASSION for art & tattoos were the perfect combo to open our own tattoo studio. Welcome to MARS Ink!
Art has always enthralled me; its charm and liberty possessed me from an early age when I'd draw in notebooks during class as a child, to exploring oil painting since 2012. I was first introduced to tattooing as a teenager; however, I'm excited to be re-entering the world of tattooing now with a passion for fineline. I look forward to creating tattoo works of art that are influenced by my work in oil painting, as well as with the influence of artists that have helped me find my own style. I can be quiet and philosophical, an optimistic nihilist if we must label it but as I've heard it said, "just because we're all doomed, it doesn't mean we can't have a good time."
