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.

Done and done. Take it easy guys.
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.

As mentioned, we have new shop stickers. Come get one.
That’s all I’ve got for you this week. Keep an eye out for more info on upcoming events, guest artist, etc.
So ya, due to visiting relatives the Iron Tiger Tuesday update has been pushed back a couple of days this week. Sorry about that. I’ve got photos for you of pretty much everyone. Colin sustained a nasty gash in his leg the other day. Some drunk girl on a bike ran into him and the bottle of booze she had in her water bottle holder shattered and sliced his leg open. Other than that it was a decent week.
Katy is going to be moving soon. Go party with her for her Going Away/Birthday party on May 29th at Roxy’s.
Being that this is a College town and it’s the end of the semester I’m sure alot of you know someone who just graduated. Iron Tiger gift certificates are great for any occasion including but not limited to belated graduation presents. Just sayin’…
Here’s Lars finishing up a starfish on a knee. He also did that bitchin’ girl head.
Here’s a couple pieces Gabe worked on recently.
Colin and Morgan hanging out. Also a cool geometric design Colin did on a walk-in.
Here’s a couple roses for you. Angie did the first, Cody did the second.
Here’s a few fun ones Moe did this week.
Katy did this one on our counter guy Dirty Cody.
Miss Morgan hard at work.
That’s it until next Tuesday. Take it easy.
Well it’s that time again, welcome back for another Iron Tiger Tuesday update. It’s been a whirlwind week for everyone at the shop. Between weddings, friends visiting, guest spots, baby birthdays, bro tats, etc. it was hard to keep an eye on what was going on around the shop.
Obviously, the big news of the week was Dan and Lauren’s wedding on Saturday. It was held at Les Bourgeois Vineyards which overlook the Missouri River. The ceremony and reception were fantastic. We closed the shop for the day so that everyone could attend. Our friend Jen even managed to make it in from LA. Tony and Jasmine came in from Las Vegas to shoot the photos for the wedding so if you’re looking for wedding pictures I’d start with them. All in all it was an amazing day and I feel honored to have been asked to be a part of it. Congratulations you guys.
Aside from all the outside happenings of the week the shop seemed to run as smooth as usual. It was your typical wash of walk-ins and appointments. Colin and Katy did guest spots at Iron Age over the weekend. Moe and Morgan went down to Florida for a few days. That’s about all I’ve got for now. Lets look at some pictures.
Lars started the line work on a Missouri folklore monster half sleeve on our friend/counter guy Adam. He also did that bitchin’ hot air balloon.
Gabe doing a session on Tony’s back piece. Also a rad Tiger Fly.
Jerry demon head by Dan.
Moe did this cool pin-up on a walk-in.
Yes Dan, we’re all very happy for you…now quit dicking around on your “honeymoon” and get back to work.
That’s it for this week guys. Hopefully I’ll have more pictures for you next week. Take it easy.
