" I have been to other tattoo shops and can honestly say now that I have been to Lucky Strike Tattoo, I will never go to another tattoo shop again!  I feel like "home" with the shop, the atmosphere is great and I can't think of any other tattoo shop I would rather be at.

The employees are very knowledgeable about all aspects of the industry and would love to answer any questions or help you with a design for your next (of first) tattoo! " - A.

"Matt did my first tattoo about a year and a half ago.  This past weekend he did #5 for me (he also did #2 thru #4).

Everyone at Matt's shop is friendly, easy to talk to, the kind of people you would want to hangout with.  The place is spotless, Matt is neat and meticulous with his setup,  his designs and how he talks to his customers.

I followed my artist Paul k to this studio and it does not disappoint!!! Totally modern and covers everything you may need for a tattoo or piercing. Great ambience, music playin, newest of inks, chairs, equipment, swag, after care... owners open for me for a sunday appointment to accomodate my schedule... not many shops do that. Cant wait for my next appointment! -E.

Love everything about this shop, all are Fabulous Artists, No Attitudes, Super Friendly and Great Pricing for the High Quality Work. Can't wait for my next one. - J.

I was very happy with Paul K's work. Nice guy, low key, very good with lettering and shading. The studio is edgy (in a good way), clean, well laid out. Very accommodating and friendly staff. I strongly recommend their numbing cream for more painful areas (I had my collarbone and sternum areas done), well worth the extra $$$. I was skeptical about the Tatu-Derm, but it seems to help with the healing. I'd definitely recommend Lucky Strike to anyone wanting ink. - H.

Just want to say this place is loaded with super talented artists and a superior piercer. Very professional without taking away the great feeling of comrodery. Would strongly recommend if you have a hankering for a good tattoo or piercing! - C.

Amazing artwork done by artists that really care. I have only gone to the shop a few times but the prices are more than fair and the atmosphere is always positive. Great people and great work I highly recommend the shop to anyone especially people getting a tattoo for the first time. - D.

Walt is the newest addition to the Lucky Strike supervisory team. Much like Jake he's been around the shop for years, helping out wherever and whenever he can. However it is his passion for classic and newer horror movies that got him the job! Just pop in on any Friday night and ask to see his leg sleeve! His ability to learn quickly and his desire to make clients happy has made him a great addition to the Lucky Strike Tattoo team.

Jessica has spent the last 5 years tattooing at several different shops in the area before finding us. Born in Texas, she moved to Pennsylvania at the age of 9. Although her passion for art began at an even younger age! Jessica would spend her time experimenting with any medium available; pen, pencil, paint and more.  At the age of 16 she got her first tattoo and immediately knew she wanted to become a tattoo artist. She works with a variety of styles including Neo Traditional, Traditional, Lettering, Realism, Watercolor, Pointilism and Black and Grey. Jessica's desire to continuously learn from her surroundings and her life experiences creates a unique perspective she brings to every tattoo design. This is just one of the reasons why we are excited to work with her and welcome her to the team!
