We have now returned to our normal business hours, so we hope to see you soon! 

New clients please reach out via email or call us - We want to meet you!   704-845-1533

In this new time of focused personal health responsibly, I will do everything possible & recommended, as always, to provide the safest environment possible for you.
But you have responsibility too. If you think, or your doctor has told, you that your health would be at risk 
getting tattoo work, we ask you wait until you are healthy enough
. That doesn't just apply to Covid- but any health issues. 

As always, we ask you not to enter the premiss period if you have symptoms of any illness. Reschedule. 

There may be new & changing  protocols we have to take and we ask you comply with them for your, our, and other clients health & safety. 
*As of now, We have a capacity limit, you're welcome to a guest or 2 but please limit guest during your appointiment. Everyone needs the opprotunity to bring at least on person - be considerate.
*When in the studio, please maintain your personal space by 6ft from other guest.
*It's suggested you wear a face covering (provide your own please)
*And again, please do not come in if you have symptoms of any illness. 

Thank you - Nikki Thompson

Nikki's Tattoo Studio  is Charlotte's Premiere (Original)  woman owned and operated tattoo studio. Beware of copy cat's. Nikki's is often imitated, but NEVER duplicated.  Open since 1995, we are also one of Charlotte's oldest established tattoo studios. The studio relocated to Matthews NC in January of 2016. Feet outside the Charlotte city limits. Thanks for supporting woman owned businesses. Our staff is all female, but we do have many male clients!
