Let us help you create!

Hello and welcome! Here at Figure 8 Ink Studios we offer a variety of arts based services, including tattooing, cosmetic tattooing, body piercing, art classes, and art events.

We believe that getting a tattoo should be an enjoyable experience in which both artist and client together produce an artistic representation of self. We strive to provide excellent customer service and to create custom artistic pieces that reflect the personality and tastes of our clients. Our piercer also works hard to provide caring and individual attention to each client and we provide high-quality artistic jewelry options. We also offer weekly art classes for all ages, taught by long time art educator/owner Tricia, along with a team of other amazing art instructors including some of Tricia’s old colleagues from Spotsylvania County Schools, which dabble in a variety of artistic mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, wood burning, and ceramics. Tricia also offers lively private paint or custom art project parties for any occasion. Click the relevant menu link to learn more! --

Congratulations to Tricia!

Owner Tricia has won the 2022 University of Mary Washington Distinguished Alumnus Award, in honor of her professional and artistic accomplishments, leadership/educational role in the Fredericksburg community, and her continued ties and respect for her Alma Mater. She was so excited and grateful to receive this honor from President Paino and the Alumni Association Board of Directors at the University Address event next month! 🙏🏼 📖 🥇 🦅


“The Distinguished Alumnus Award is presented to an alumnus/a who has made significant achievements and contributions to his/her profession and/or community and is recognized for leadership in his/her field. The contributions do not need to be publicly renowned but should represent important creative effort or accomplishment with societal or educational value. The achievements of the awardees should be inspirational to the University of Mary Washington students and bring honor and a source of pride to the University.”
