Ink On Ink Off is a new concept, clinician-led tattoo center located in Cleveland, Ohio with a twist… tattoo artists and doctors working together!

Make no mistake. We’re not your “typical” tattoo parlor by any stretch of the imagination. What we are is something you’ve never seen before – at least, not around here.  We’re Cleveland’s first and only clinician-led tattoo studio to offer laser tattoo removals, tattoo redesigns, tattooing and piercing all under one roof.

It’s a clinical arts community deliberately designed to give clients options they’ve never had. Until now.  Edgy, techy, friendly…we’re like Marcus Welby meets Criss Angel.

Quite simply, Ink On Ink Off in Cleveland will change the way you think about your canvas; and isn’t it about time?
