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! --
