With a fanfare reserved for minor starlets, Cat has been welcomed back into her home studio Dark Horse Tattoos and Body Piercing in Stafford, Virginia after her long (grueling!) recovery from major surgery. She’s been thowing down some killer custom artwork and if you like Instagram you can see some of the good stuff there as well as here under the Art section.

We are pleased to be planning some surprises for this year but we -ahem- don’t want to let the cat out of the bag just quite yet. Keep your ear to the ground if you’re interested though because big things are coming. Seriously. Remember, it’s the Chinese Year of the Horse. It’s our year so come be a part of it. Everyone’s welcome.

In other news, our Tattooing Department has been doing a number of custom add-ons, re-inks and re-dos to existing tattoos. If you, or someone you know, is wanting a little drama in their day and the usual Facebook he-said-she-said-Meme dynamic isn’t your thing, swing by to see what your tattoo can evolve in to. You may be surprised. Jon did a beautiul phoenix tatoo recently as an add on to an existing tattoo and Cat did a Miami Hurrica’s add-on that increased the size of the original tattoo to a custom quarter sleeve sports themed tattoo.

In other news, we’d like to congratulate our floor hostess Tegan and John on their recent marriage! We wish you every happiness. Also a shout-out to their gorgeous daughter Adie whom we hear took the tile of “Princess” recently; couldn’t have happend to a more beautiful young lady.

Remember our motto, we may use needes but we are’t pricks about it!
