An overnight success, Three years in the making

Cardinal Tattoo was founded on August 1st, 2014.  In the three years since then, we have built one of the most consistently awarded tattoo establishments in Middle Tennessee, with a reputation for quality and customer service that is unparalleled for miles around.  We've worked hard to give people our very best and it's paid off.

Karen Masters has become known as the person to see for cover-up tattoos, tackling difficult pieces other artists wouldn't even attempt, to great success.  

Tasha Grey is an up-and-coming new school artist specializing in her own original style, travelling the U.S. to get tattooed by celebrity artists including Kelly Doty of Inkmaster fame or otherwise hobnob with the rich and famous in the music industry.

Our own Drucifer has been the most surprising.  Getting to apprentice with an accomplished artist like Will is a great opportunity in it's own right, but when someone like Drew comes along, it makes all the hard work worth it.  Faced with a startling health crisis that almost took his life earlier this year, Drew has nevertheless become Cardinal Tattoo's breakout artist.  Second only to his mentor Will, Drew has taken his artwork from solely traditional American style tattooing to experiment with realism and neotraditional tattoos, growing his skills to better serve his community.

Led by one of the Tennessee's award-winningest artists, Will, Cardinal tattoo has become a smashing overnight success, three years in the making.  We thank you, we love you, and we're here to serve you.  Come visit Cardinal Tattoo on the historic Gallatin, TN square at 110 North Water Ave or call us at (615) 527-7102 to see what all the fuss is about and set up an appointment today!
