A Clean and Quality Tattoo Parlor

When safety and quality are priorities, Jacksonville and Wilmington, NC look to Hardwire Tattoo.
Choosing the right tattoo studio is crucial to ensure you get the tattoo you want – and you want to have a good experience in the process. Upon entering any reputable tattoo studio, you should see training and licensing certificates/permits openly displayed. The shop should never smell, and if it does, the smell should remind you of a hospital – clean and sterile – never musky or dirty. The floors and counters should be clean and free of ink spots. Also, there should not be any cloth furniture anywhere in the studio; you could easily contract a disease from invisible dried blood on furniture.

If you’re considering getting a tattoo, come to one of Hardwire Tattoo’s tattoo parlors. Each one of our tattoo shops is designed with your comfort in mind. We have private rooms and talented artists who can help you with your tattoo ideas, in addition to a fun and clean environment.
