Upper Room Tattoo becomes Captive Hearts Tattoo, new name, same great art! Tattoos by Captive Hearts

Well there is good reason for that...we are formerly Upper Room Tattoo Co. We had sold the shop with plans to move out of the area and continue our ministry. However, after much thought and prayer, we realized that our ties to this community are too great and this is the place we are meant to be in. We were blessed to be able to buy back the shop with the agreement to rename it. As we are husband and wife... the whole His & Hers thing was always something we wanted to portray... giving life to Captive Hearts Tattoo! So come in and check us out! New look, new name, same friendly staff and sterile environment!
