Empire Ink is proud to be THE ONLY ALL DISPOSABLE TATTOO STUDIO in Northeast Ohio, which means that ALL of our artists utilize "one-time-use-only" needles AND tubes!
The vast majority of all tattoo shops clean and sterilize their stainless steel tattoo-machine tubes in a medical autoclave for the purpose of reuse. Empire Ink does not! We believe that the process of cleaning and sterilizing these bio-hazardous materials yields too large of a margin for mistakes to be made and for blood-borne pathogens and diseases to be transfered to our valuable clients and artists.
When considering a tattoo studio for your tattoo - choose the cleanest, safest and best choice - choose Empire Ink!
Please take a moment of your time to educate yourself on TATTOO SAFETY.
Empire Ink is a CUSTOM tattoo studio, which means all you have to do is have a rough idea of what you want to get done. Our artists will then create your design to your absolute satisfaction. Be sure to check out our artists individual portfoliosto find the artistic style best suited for you.
All quotes and consultations are free. If you have a question about an idea you have for a new tattoo, a cover-up or anything else at all, give us a call at the studio 330-928-9833.
We are located at 335 E. Cuyahoga Falls Ave. in Akron, Ohio.
Your experience will be a unique and refreshing departure from the traditional tattoo shop.
Akron's first original custom tattoo shop. (OK... maybe not the first, but definitely one of the best.) Empire Ink is located right on Cuyahoga Falls Ave. and houses some of the best talent in town.
The shop is an ungodly amount of square feet of jam-packed creativity. Maybe you'll get a little confused when you first walk in. You might even ask yourself, "Ummm... where are all the tattoo designs?" You'll find no obvious flash on these walls. What you will find is everything else. Original art all over the walls (and drawn on them as well), line drawings scatter everyone's station, stickers galore, and custom t-shirts. You might feel as if you've walked into an art gallery run by deviants and outcasts. But you'll always feel welcomed and whatever design you've thought up in your mind will appear before your eyes as the crew here at Empire Ink gives you the VIP treatment getting to work on drawing it out for you!
We also serve as an art gallery with revolving shows every month or two. With the casual atmosphere of the art gallery, you can come enjoy yourself while browsing the present show as well as the artists’ portfolios showcased in the studio.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to call us at 330-928-9833 or just come by the studio. We are located at 335 Cuyahoga Falls Ave. If you'd rather email us you can reach us at email@example.com Learn more about the tattoo process, our artists, art gallery, events, or buy merch in our store.

Tattoo Safety Advice
With the advent of many communicable diseases, some fatal, it has been necessary to institute certain isolation and sterilization procedures in the tattoo process to assure the public of a safe, risk-free tattoo. The following advice has been prepared by professional tattooists working with local, state and national health authorities.
1. Always insist that you see your tattooist remove a new needle & tube set-up from a sealed envelope immediately prior to your tattoo
2. Be certain you see your tattooist pour a new ink supply into a new disposable container.
3. Make sure your artist puts on a new pair of disposable gloves before setting up tubes, needles, and ink supplies.
4. Satisfy yourself that the shop furnishings & tattooist are clean & orderly in appearance; much like a medical facility.
5. Feel free to question the tattooist as to any of his/her sterile procedures & isolation techniques. Take time to observe them at work & do not hesitate to inquire about their experience & qualifications in the tattoo field.
6. If the tattooist is a qualified professional, they will have no problem complying with standards above & beyond these simple guidelines.
7. If the artist or studio does not appear up to these standards or if they become evasive when questioned, seek out a PROFESSIONAL tattooist.
