There is no greater reason to adorn one’s flesh with a marking than to celebrate the love between two people and the tribes they come from. It’s a ritual as old as time.
— Robert Fiore, The Wedding Tattooer

After spending years dedicating my career becoming fluent in all styles of tattoo, I decided to share this timeless tradition with couples and their closest loved ones, thus The Wedding Tattooer was born!  As an artist I like to have a wide palette of styles to pull inspiration from, allowing me to create wedding tattoo keepsakes to suit all tastes, and it's here I find beauty in simple elegance.  I feel tattoos symbolize a moment in time, and I strive to capture just that on the day you choose LOVE!

   Every tattoo is unique as the families joining together on your special day, and I would be honored to share the experience with you!   Your occasion can be classic, eclectic, or anything in between, our experience and attention to the smallest of details will ensure your guests will fondly remember the day you said "I do".  At the heart of every great occasion is a warm, positive vibe felt by everyone involved, where guests feel comfortable to relax, be themselves, and get to know each other.  When you reveal to your guests they'll be able to receive a tattoo keepsake at your wedding reception, bachelor/bachelorette party or any other special occasion, it will create a buzz unlike any other and join everyone in celebration!   A happily married man myself, I'm no stranger to the hectic pace of "The Big Day", so relax!  You and your guests are in good hands!  We've got you covered!

When planning your wedding tattoo experience, you'll start by clicking the Booking Inquiries button located on our site.  By entering your occasion information when prompted, I'll  get an idea of how you're looking to celebrate and also check our availability.  We'll go over your ideas and once your date is booked I'll get the ball rollin' with planning your event!.  Be sure to check out our Tattoo Menu gallery, you'll be able to get a feel for the variety of styles we provide for your guests!   As always, I extend the same cutting edge industry standards from my studio to your event, making sure to deliver a clean and sterile procedure for every guest, while also making the tattoo a fun and memorable experience for everyone!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  I love what you do, and I must have the Wedding Tattooer as entertainment for my big event.  How do I book your amazing service?
A.  I like our services to be flexible and give couples some options when booking us!  A $750.00 retainer deposit locks your date in our books payable through our secure PayPal, then your guests pay $50.00 per tattoo at your event.  You may also choose to pick up the tab and offer our tattoo keepsakes as "favors" to your guests ("Get tattooed on us!").  I bring a SquarePad Reader to accept all payment transactions on-site quick and easy!

Q.  I see you can travel anywhere in the world.  How do I get you to my event?
A.  Whether I’m traveling by plane or hittin’ the road, I can efficiently and safely transport everything I need to provide a 100% professional and sterile experience for you and your guests.  If I’m flying to your event, I handle the flight arrangements myself and I send you the invoice to cover it.  I have access to the cheapest airline deals around, so this expense is kept to an absolute minimum.  I come in the day before, wake up and rock out your event, and fly home the following day.  When driving to your event, travel expenses include gas and tolls.  In addition, I will need a place to stay.  I’m flexible about this and don’t require much.  Family guest rooms work great!
*Please note the following states I drive to: PA, NJ, NY, MD, DE, CT, MA, ME, NH, VT, VA, DC, WV, RI.  All other states I fly out of Philadelphia International Airport and require transportation to and from your airport.

Q.  How will my guests choose their tattoo keepsakes?
A.   I like to provide choices and styles on our menus that will appeal to all tastes, ensuring there’s a little somethin’ for everyone!  Click the "Tattoo Menus" tab up top to view our current menus that I'm constantly adding new and fresh themes and concepts to!  I recommend including my website address with a "Live Tattooing by The Wedding Tattooer!" on your invitations so your guests may view the menus as well and get jazzed up for the experience!  Once your guests find out there will be live tattooing I guarantee your event will become a highly anticipated occasion and not just "another wedding to go to."!  I see it every event we are a part of!!  For the happy couple we'll collaborate with you to come up with a custom tattoo keepsake that will uniquely and elegantly symbolize the love you share!   

Q.  We want to exchange larger, more involved tattoos as wedding gifts to each other.  Can we book you for tattoo sessions like this?
A.  Absolutely!  I’d love to give you both longer sessions for tattoo wedding gifts to each other, in any style you choose!  I like to incorporate elements special to the both of you, in any style of tattooing your personal tastes go for!  One element I like using is the flowers from your bouquet and boutonnière.  I can use your floral arrangements and colors in your tattoo concepts, keeping your wedding day memories as fresh as the day you said I Do!   I can either tattoo you both the day before your event, or the day after in a more relaxed, casual atmosphere.  That way we can spend more time on your larger tattoo keepsakes, chill, and have fun!  If you’re already married and wish to commemorate your nuptials with a one-of-a-kind Wedding Tattooer piece, I can be there for you too!  If you like to travel, you can book me at my studio and receive the ultimate “sticker on your suitcase”!

Q.  My guests will be partying, it is a wedding after all.  Will they be able to be tattooed?
A.  We ask any guests wishing to participate, do so in a responsible manner.  If you appear visibly intoxicated, I will not tattoo you.  I extend the same policy I have at the studio to Wedding Tattooer events, which is “Don’t be a horse’s ass”.  Party responsibly and be respectful.

Q.  Do you offer discounts?
A.  Sure do!  Any couple who is currently serving or previously served in any branch of military, fire persons, and police officers.  You’re the real heroes and I help you out as much as I can.

Q.  Are you insured?
A.  Always!  We provide our insurance binder for any venue that requests it.  Every guest who participates also fills out a waiver of liability in the same way you would in my professional tattoo studio.

Q.  I would like to book you for an event other than a wedding reception.  What other types of events are you available for?
A.  Any event I can set my mobile Tattoo Bar up indoors with a modern electric source!  The Wedding Tattooer is good clean fun for themed events (Think Star Wars, Alice In Wonderland, themes like that!), office parties, bachelorette parties, or any other gathering of cool, like-minded folk who want to get down!  Send me your ideas, I’m sure I’ll be into it!

Q.  Are guests going to be running around my reception with open tattoos bleeding all over the place?
A.  Nooooooooo, every tattoo will be bandaged properly, and guests will be given healing instructions with lotion.  I understand many guests who participate might not be super familiar with the proper healing of a tattoo, and I especially make sure those guests are informed of the proper do’s and don’ts.  I also pay strict attention to cross contamination precautions and my formula ensures every guest leaves your event with a good clean tattoo keepsake!
