THE CREW!
"Mugsey" AKA "Mugzilla"

Comedy Relief.  The funniest dog I've ever owned.  Born May 2006, Mugsey is a pure bred Boston Terrior.  She loves chasing the ball, and is a notorious
dragon slayer, purple chewie ones of course.  
"Alexander"  AKA "bug" or "Dander"
Greatest kid in the world.  Very proud of this guy.  He's working full time and on his own.  
That's not easy in the this county.  Keep up the good work kiddo!
"Donald"
Owner/Shop Manager
He's the "Big Guy" that helps to run the show.  He takes appointments, answers the phone, and makes all of us lunch.  He
puts all the crap into the computer to keep the business running.  He's part of the sterilization team, sets up, cleans up,
cleans the shop, and is responsible for keeping my sanity.  He runs the errands around town, and is the main driver for
team Inky Cells.  He's the man we all yell for when we need help.  He's also a great husband and friend that's stood by my
side for the past 27 years we've known each other, and the 26 years we've been married.  He's a walking encyclopedia for
motorcycle information, a huge Raider fan, and will talk your leg off if you need to be distracted because the tattoo hurts too
much.  If I can't help you, then Donald can.  If Donald can't help you, then you're shit outta luck.  
"Dana"  Owner/Tattooist.  AKA "Inky"

I'm the one that does all the art in the shop.  I draw all the tattoos.  I tattoo everybody that comes into the shop.  I'm the official photographer for the
shop, and  I'm also in charge of sterilizing, making needles, setup, clean up, placing orders for all the inventory, organizing the appointments, cleaning
the shop and the bathroom is always cleaned for you by yours truly.  I vacuum and mop the floors.  The Lysol cloud that frequently spills out of the
shop is my doing.  99% of the art on the walls is mine.  Then lest we forget that I get to be a Mom and a Wife!

So, that's all of us.  2 people really make it happen around here, and Alex reminds us that we have to have a home life.  If you are surprised that you
have to wait for 2 months for your tattoo, just remember the list of goodies that we have to do to get ready for each and every customer.  Donald
and I can only do so much in a day, but when you do get tattooed, we try to make it the best experience we possibly can.  I think we provide some
of the best tattoo work in Northern California, but I think I'm a bit partial!  

We are expensive, we are back logged, but we are worth it!  ( I love the Yelp review that quotes this.  This isn't a discount process.  This isn't a
discount business.
 Your health and safety won't be compromised to save money.)
We are a professional,small business that truely produces
something made in America and made by hand.  Colored
pencils, graphite pencils, sharpies, paper, brushes, pigment
and paint are at the center of my world all day long.  
Notice.....no computer and no Photoshop program.  
Everything that comes out of Inky Cells is made by Dana's
hands.  Yes it may take a bit to get a drawing done, but it
takes a bit to actually make that drawing happen!  We are
very old fashioned, and we work as hard as we can.   When
you come to get a tattoo from Dana, give yourself plenty of
time on your tattoo day.  Eat something before your tattoo.  
Bring yourself a small munchie.  There's no reason to rush
thru this process, and by all means, please think of this place
as being a sanctuary.  We are grateful for electricity, but the
rest of the technology is starting to become distracting and
irritating.  I don't have public WiFi and I won't be offering it any
time soon.  It doesn't help the tattoos or make the tattoo
process hurt less.  Come and enjoy some time with us, and
help to create a wonderful moment in your life.  It's all about
what you put into it that makes all the difference.
