Minimalist Tattoos Are Officially Taking Over St.Louis!

     Minimalist Tattoos trending in 2018!

 Steel and Ink Tattoo Studio

3565 Ritz Ctr. St Louis, MO 63125

      Here at Steel and Ink Tattoo Studio we have seen many different tattoo trends, but we have yet to see a trend as impactful as Minimalist Tattoos!! The trend made its first appearance in St.Louis in 2017 and ever since then has taken St. Louis by storm. The concept of a minimalist tattoo has alot to do with the size of the tattoo and even more to do with the simplicity of the tattoo. Minimalist tattoos usually consist of continuous line designs and simple curves. Here are some examples of minimalist tattoos that we have done at Steel and Ink Tattoo Studio!

What attracts people to the minimalist tattoo most is the lack of complexity! It is a perfect style of tattoo for people who are wary of getting their first tattoo because it is small enough to not be overwhelming! They are a great first design to help ease people into the body art world and show them what to expect when getting a tattoo at Steel and Ink Studio, without the commitment of getting a large time consuming piece! Our artists at Steel and Ink Studio have also seen a huge influx of minimal script tattoos! They are truly the perfect addition to your tattoo collection or stunning on their own!      
     Be sure to come up to Steel and Ink Tattoo and Piercing Studio in St. Louis to get your own minimalist tattoo & start off this spring the right way!

Check Out This Video- A safe alternative for getting your child's ear pierced!


 -You gotta see this footage-

 A safe alternative to taking your child to your local mall or department store is to make a trip to Steel and Ink Tattoo and Piercing Studio. A couple benefits of utilizing your local St. Louis tattoo shop to pierce your children's ears, is that our professional piercers are trained and licensed practitioners by the state of Missouri and not a sales person. Also, Steel and Ink Studio is monitored and inspected for sterility and compliance of the laws by the state of Missouri and the South County Health Department. There is a minimum of 3 inspections per year. We even have some of our local health department inspectors as our clients! 

We take every procedure and client seriously and want to give you the best experience possible while transforming your body with a new tattoo or  body piercing. To view some of our tattoo artist or professional piercers portfolios you can go to www.steelandinkstudio.com or stop by and talk with us on your ideas and goals. Browse our large variety of 14 kt gold, titanium and surgical stainless steel jewelry. If  your life is as busy as ours then you can simply email us at steelandinkstudio@gmail.com with any questions.
Thank you to the parents of this brave six year old for sending us this footage and trusting us with your child!

There are only 2 weeks left to donate an unopened toy or teen item to the children of Shriner's Hospital of St. Louis. Seeing people walk through our door with toys & blankets in hand is what makes our days & hearts whole here at Steel and Ink Piercing & Tattoo Studio. There are so many of you who have taken the time to come in and donate and we would like to ,Thank You ,for the masses of toys and teen items to donate to the Shriner's children and families. Although, there are still plenty of  need for more donations. Some examples of great gifts for the children are books,board games,cards,dice, hair accessories, mini speakers, etc. Please find it in your heart to donate TODAY and in exchange for your kind & thoughtful donations you will receive 15% off of your next tattoo and/or piercing with us!

        As we all know it has been a rough Holiday Season for Shriners Hospital. On November 15th a fire ripped through a local warehouse destroying toys & blankets destined for the annual Christmas party for patients (& their families) at Shriner's Hospital for Children.  This left the hospital and the patients less than a month away from the party empty handed. Then on November 28th, Wood River Police shared on their Facebook page that "several" Christmas trees that helps support the Shriner's were stolen also!.
       After hearing about this unfortunate event we are REALLY encouraging everyone to do their part & donate. We are pleased to say that we have received  many donations in exchange for 15% off a tattoo or piercing this far, but the kids & teens from Shriner's need more!
