Our Story

Bryan Burk opened Dark Horse Tattoo in 2010 with the intention of creating a non-intimidating relaxed atmosphere while adhering to the highest levels of craftsmanship and artistry. Bryan was soon joined by Adam Warmerdam, their stylish aesthetic and fresh approach to American and traditional Japanese tattooing quickly established them as one of the most sought after shops in the city. 

Dark Horse has since become a place for creative tattooers from around the world to gather and share ideas about moving the craft of tattooing forward, while maintaining a strong sense of our traditions. We regularly host guest artists such as Bailey Robinson, Gordon Combs, Candi Kinyobi and Jason Vaughn.

We are happy to work with whatever you have in mind and/or help you conceptualize your next tattoo. We look forward to meeting you!
