Our Story

Tygerwolf Tattoo started as a private studio in the "Freelard" area of Seattle in 2013. In October of 2015 we expanded and moved to our second location, beneath Fremont Coffee. After two years of co-sharing the space with our lovely neighbors, Juniper Flowers, we found the need to expand once again. We moved to our current location on the corner of 36th and Phinney in October of 2017.

The shop specializes in custom tattoo design and offers a wide range of styles - from blackwork to color, dot work to traditional. We take pride in our artwork and our care for our clients. Each artist's portfolio and bio can be found in the artists section of this website, and please feel free to contact us directly with any questions. We also welcome guest artists from around the world, so be sure to follow us on Instagram (@tygerwolftattoo) for updates on any artists that will be visiting.


As always, thank you for trusting us with your tattoo needs. It is an honor and a privilege to get to work with such a diverse and wonderful group of people. We look forward to hearing your design ideas.
