Lyndsey Selby aka Lyzard

Tattoo Artist

Lyndsay finished her apprenticeship under Robbie Ripoll in late 2021. The way this young lady understands art is on a whole ‘nother level & she brings it to you in her surrealistic funky fun style.

Being a person who doesn’t subscribe to societal norms, also goes by the name Lyzard. It’s a nickname she picked up along her journey that just kinda stuck! One of the most unique and awesome individuals that you will ever meet, our very own Lyzard is will always do her best to deliver a one of a kind tattoo, that you will cherish for a lifetime every time!!!!

Prone to paint would be a super accurate way to describe Lyzard. She muraled her entire bedroom including the ceiling. And can be found on any given day inside the shop or out, making art of some kind. She’s part hippie, part rad old biker dude, an old soul, and a kick ass person to spend quality time with while getting a rad new tattoo.

Macklin Morano

Body Piercer

Mack has been around tattoo shops since he was a preteen. His family got tattooed by Robbie which is where it all began! He has been getting tattooed for around two decades. In addition to his extensive and ever growing tattoo collection he has undergone some rad body modifications including a moon shaped subdermal implant in his hand and a tongue split. He has gotten to experience human body suspension a number of times as well. To say this dude is comfortable around a needle is an understatement. 

Needles aren’t all this man is good with! He’s been a chef and still loves to cook, and is pretty darn good at it too. He’s been in construction as well as cosmetology, but found his happiest place in the piercing world. 

A mouth full of gold, a neck full of jewelry and a piercing needle in hand, Big Mack has got your back. He’s always into going to extremes so bring your craziest piercing ideas, because who knows what kind of cool stuff he can do on you!
