Hey, it’s Tuesday again, welcome back for another update. This was Angie’s last week at the shop. She’s moving to St. Louis and will be working at Evermore Gallery in Edwardsville, IL. We’re super bummed to see her go. On the bright side though, she’ll be back every once in a while to do guest spots and hang out. If not, we’ll probably just show up drunk at her house and pester her until she agrees to. Follow her on Facebook or instagram (@angiemeuth) for info on when she’ll be in town.
There was alot going on at the shop this week. Although we still did a fare amount of bread and butter tattoos, I did see more cool traditional projects come through the door than I have recently. Not only that but it wasn’t just our friends getting them. Some were just straight up walk in’s. With all the personnel changes we’ve had recently, a few people decided to upgrade to different rooms. There moves kept Lee, Dirty Cody and myself pretty busy with shop maintenance and upkeep; lots of painting, drilling, scrubbing etc. The up side to these room swaps is that we’re gonna have a new room specifically for guest artists. Lee also managed to get Gabe’s new circus print set hung up in the lobby.
Gabe, Cody and Dan will be in Prescott, AZ for the Northern AZ Tattoo Fest on July 5-7th. If you’re in the area go check them out and get an awesome panther head or something.

A quick shot of the new circus prints in the lobby.
That’s it guys, see ya next week.
What’s up guys, I’ve got another Tuesday update for ya. What sticks out most about this past week is the fact that we had a shooting happen near the shop on Friday night. We had already closed up for the evening but a few of us were still there and saw/heard it go down. Apparently, some cowardly, hood rat mother fuckers opted to open fire into a crowd of people as opposed to handling there shit like adults. Thankfully no one died but there were three people injured. I’ve had it up to here with this shit. That could have been any one of my friends (or yours) out for a good time on a Friday night just wanting to cross the fucking street. I guess we can all be thankful that marksmanship wasn’t a high priority for these pricks.
But you’re not here to listen to me rant; you want to know whats going on with the shop. Well alot of the guys were still out of town this past week. Gabe, Colin and Cody were out doing guest spots at various places in CA and Las Vegas. Phil spent the week tattooing at Trader Bob’s in STL. Our friend Casey came up to cover some more shifts while the guys were gone. As of some time tonight everyone should be back in town and back to work by tomorrow. Feel free to call the shop (573.499.1200) or just stop by to figure out when any of your favorite artists will be available.
I didn’t manage to take/steal as many pictures this week as I usually do but here they are.

Take it easy guys. See ya next week.
Well, the big news this week is that Katy is no longer tattooing at Iron Tiger. She had a great going away party at Roxy’s the other night complete with karaoke, drunken co-workers and remote control shark balloons. From here she’ll be traveling around doing guest spots. We’ll have a post up soon with more information about how to get ahold of her for appointments. I think I speak for everyone at the shop when I say it really sucks to see her go.
To help fill the chasmlike void that Katy left behind, Phil has moved back from Minnesota to take her place. He’ll be tattooing full time from here on out. Call the shop (573.499.1200) or just stop by for appointments and walk-ins.
Gabe, Colin and Cody are leaving this week for Ink and Iron in Long Beach. They’ll be gone for a couple weeks so if you have tattoos you need worked on you should get at them quick.
Oh ya, both Dirty Cody and Randy Schnar got ” fuck Jeff” tattoos this week. Enjoy.

Well, another week down, another weekly update. A few of our guys were on the road over the weekend. Colin and Sid spent the weekend tattooing and piercing down at A1 World Famous Tattooing in Lake of the Ozarks. Our friend Casey came up to cover one of Colin’s shifts. Lars spent the weekend tattooing at All Star Tattoo and Trader Bobs Tattoo Shop in St. Louis.
Just as a reminder Gabe, Colin, and Cody will be tattooing at the Ink and Iron tattoo convention in Long Beach on June 7-9. Hit them up for appointments if you’re going to be in the area. Also, for those of you in town, Go to Katy’s going away/birthday party tomorrow (May 29) at Roxy’s so we can send her off in sloppy drunk Como style.
It was an interesting week at the shop. Alot of the locals were out of town for the holiday weekend but we still managed to stay occupied with some cool projects. Take a look.
Colin did another session on Dirty Cody’s chest piece.
Here’s a couple new ones from Lars.
Here’s a few from Gabe including a cover up on Dan’s shoulder.

This week the Tuesday update is actually on time, imagine that. Despite MU’s graduation slowing the shop down a bit this weekend we still managed to grind out a decent amount of cool tattoos. I’ve got a bunch of pics for you today.
Our good friend Josh “Chappy” Chapman from Iron Age came in for a visit over the weekend to work on some pieces he has in progress. He also DJ’d at Roxy’s on Saturday night. It was alot of fun having him in town. The man has rad prints for sale if you’re in the market for some new decor.
We were all excited to see the new Iron Tiger stickers arrive this weekend. There are two different designs available. Feel free to stop by the shop and grab a few.
The first five pictures I have for you today are from Cody.
Katy got to do this Batman and a crazy Thompson gun gorilla
Chappy did a session on Gabe’s back this weekend. He also did this hannya mask on our friend Jesse.
Here’s four recent ones from Dan.
Here’s the first session Gabe did on my GF’s back piece plus a couple more he has in progress on other people.
