Our Mission:

First and most importantly, our goal is to create awe-inspiring tattoos, unique to each person that walks through our door, that will fit their body and personality perfectly and for the rest of their lives.

This isn’t a street shop. There’s no flash on the walls. Each client will get a custom-designed piece of art specifically tailored to them, drawn and tattooed by an artist with years of experience and a love of their craft.

Secondly, we strive to create a safe and relaxed environment that will put you at ease. The term “tattoo parlor” doesn’t conjure images of comfort and safety. We wish to dispel the assumption that tattoo studios are dangerous and uninviting places and create a studio environment that people are proud to be a part of and enjoy visiting.

Located downtown in the Academy Building, Firefly seeks to be an inviting and tranquil space. All tattoos are appointment only, so when you come to Firefly, you know you’ll receive the full attention of your artist.

Lastly, we want to grow as people and as artists. We will always endeavor to stay on top of our artform, both technically and artistically, as well as striving to remain balanced as individuals in all aspects of life.

 

Why a collective?

This means that our studio is owned by the artists that work there. We all work together to achieve our goals and each of us brings our strengths, ensuring that no one's talent is wasted. This democratic approach to decision making and shared ownership means that we all take immense pride in our studio and strive very hard to make it the best place it can be.

We are a family, and we invite you to be a part of our family. We build lasting friendships with our clients, and this ensures that together we can create the best tattoos for you, whether a small simple design or an entire sleeve or bodysuit.
