Back in action:

Lorin Hay is joining us this week, Tuesday May 17 through Saturday May 21, and will be taking appointments as well as walk-ins. 

This may be the last time we get to see him in American for awhile, so get tattooed before he officially heads back to live in Germany!


Lorin Hay as officially left us indefinitely and headed to Germany. 

We wish him the best of luck, and he will be greatly missed! We look forward to seeing you in the near future, Lorin!
