Prophecy Ink

Prophecy Ink is a skin art studio Louisville that reminds customers, “Good tattoos aren't cheap, cheap tattoos aren't good.” Two of the artists are recipients of multiple awards and citations by reputable industry organizations, such as the National Tattoo Association and the Louisville Tattoo Convention, and all of them perform quality jobs on their human canvases seven days a week. The subjects include bizarre portraits of celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, half-naked mermaids and female humans, intricate dream catchers and mandalas, and cartoon scenes. Prophecy Ink also runs an art gallery, and it sells gift certificates. Clients can call the shop to schedule a free meeting with the tattooist.
