This is my shop, my sanctuary. I've gathered everything dear to me...New Orleans, vintage surroundings, music, oddities, the art of friends and most of the art of tattooing and, with the help of the wonderful artists there, have tried to create a truly unique tattoo experience in a place you can relax, laugh and be among friends.
Immensely talented and charming, Liaa Walter is a joy to work with and be worked on by. She's got a killer laugh too. She's with us here at Cirque Du Rouge.
Also at Cirque Du Rouge, Robie is a wonderful tattooer and a PHENOMINAL machine builder who has supplied me with the beautiful tools I use every day.
Allen was my mentor, and after a few years away, he's baaaaack and making beautiful tattoos at Cirque Du Rouge.
The Odd Angel. The Most Dangerous Beauty Alive! Charon is our gypsy artist and with us at Cirque Du Rouge on certain dates throughout the year. Check her schedule and blog to book an appointment with this wonderful artist when she's in DC.
Dana Melissa Dixon's well written and visual blog on women in the tattoo industry. A breath of fresh air depicting women as artists, rather than eye candy.
Our "family" in Arlington, Virginia. Northern Virginia's oldest tattoo shop.
Talented traditional tattoo artists, art and memorabilia in the center of Historic Denton, MD. Most excellent gentlemen. Not to be missed!

Right across the street from Cirque, this tiny coffee shop is a great place to grab a coffee, tea, or a small snack before your appointment.
Edgy, urban, gritty...at times, deeply personal...
Erica's photography simply rocks.
I miss her terribly.
