Now if you’re coming in for your first tattoo, there’s no need to worry. Our welcoming staff is here to educate and address any questions or concerns you may have. From questions about pain tolerance, to after care, we want to make sure that you have an excellent understanding so you truly enjoy experience. In all reality, getting a tattoo is an investment; it’s an investment in yourself. Tattoos are words visualized, memories marked and realities imagined. What many don’t realize is that the talent and skill of any artist is part of a natural reserve – which eventually runs dry. So in essence, every customer that gets work literally takes a piece of his or her artist with them, and that’s priceless. Our highly experienced staff also provides free, no-pressure consultation and in addition to providing world-class tatts, we can also help remove any old or unwanted ink thanks to our in-house laser tattoo removal system.

Cover up tattoos are one of our many specialties here at Skin Design.

We provide free consultation and are always on deck to help  you figure out the best ways to cover up old or unwanted tattoos. In addition, we specialize in covering up scars from accidents or medical surgeries, and depending on the color saturation of your old tattoo, we can also provide laser tattoo removal to help lighten up or fade older work, and then follow it up with an overlay tattoo which will seamlessly cover it all up. Please view our artists galleries to see examples of cover up, portraits, as well script and lettering work.

Located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip (in the famous Chinatown district), our 4,000 sq ft studio is regarded as one of the best shops in town. Our studio serves as a hub of creativity where tattooists and tattoo collectors can share their passion for ink, art and culture. Inside our studio we also have an in-house laser tattoo removal center and our results are some of the most effective when it comes to getting rid of unwanted tattoos. In addition, we have an in-house doctor on the premises and we pride ourselves in safety and sterility.

If you're looking for a tattoo studio in Vegas, then be sure to stop on by and enjoy the experience. Our goal at SDT was to create a workspace that would provide inspiration and comfort to our artists, as well as our guests. Designed from the ground up, SDT is a design exercise that doubles as an extension of the Las Vegas experience. Highly regarded as one of the most modern tattoo parlors, our studio features the latest in modern design, lighting, audio and furniture, and it was all created to provide the ultimate comfort for our guests.

At SDT, we also understand that sterility is the first step in creating mesmerizing art, so we designed and designated a room (and a tech) who helps keep all of our tools, trays, and tattoo removal equipment sterilized above and beyond the required State laws.

With plenty of Las Vegas tattoo shops to choose from, we encourage you to look around while on your search for a tattoo place, but be sure to pay us a visit. Some have even asked us, "Who has the best tattoo shop in Las Vegas?" and our answer was simply, "The shop that best fits your style of work, budget and comfort level is the one you should go with.

While some are quick to call tatts a rising trend, we'll be quick to disagree. We see it more as a lifestyle and a culture that is backed by a history that has been around for more than a millennia. Our art has blessed the bodies of our ancient ancestors, and one of the oldest documented tattoos was some 2,500 years old and found on the mummified corpse of a Siberian Princess.
