Empire Ink is a custom tattoo studio and art gallery. Your experience will be a unique and refreshing departure from the traditional tattoo shop. Akron's first original custom tattoo shop, (OK... maybe not the first, but definitely one of the best.) Empire Ink, is located right on Cuyahoga Falls Ave. and houses some of the best talent in town. Maybe you'll get a little confused when you first walk in. You might even ask yourself, "Ummm... where are all the tattoo designs?" You'll find no obvious flash on these walls. What you will find is everything else. Original art all over the walls, line drawings scatter everyone's station, stickers galore, and custom t-shirts. You might feel as if you've walked into an art gallery run by deviants and outcasts. But you'll always feel welcomed and whatever design you've thought up in your mind will appear before your eyes as the FAMILY here at Empire Ink gives you the VIP treatment getting to work on drawing it out for you!

If you have any questions don't hesitate to call us at 330-928-9833 or just come by the studio. We are located at 335 Cuyahoga Falls Ave. If you'd rather email us you can reach us at

The vast majority of all tattoo shops clean and sterilize stainless steel tattoo tubes in an autoclave for reuse. Empire Ink does not! We believe that cleaning and sterilizing these bio-hazardous materials yields a margin for blood-borne pathogens to be transferred to our valuable clients and artists.

Choose the cleanest, safest and best choice for your new tattoo - choose Empire Ink!
