“At Lamar Street Tattoo Club, we are proud to show our clients a higher standard of tattooing. From how our tattoo shop feels to the execution of the artistic vision, our clients have enjoyed the honest experience our artists provide. By always striving to create the best atmosphere in Dallas at the best tattoo shop in Dallas, we have built a reputation of creating the best tattoos in Dallas!”
History of Lamar Street Tattoo Club
Created by head tattooist, Josh Hall, after 15 years of tattooing in other people’s shops, Josh wanted to open a tattoo shop that was uniquely his own, where emphasis could be given on proper aftercare, procedure, and quality.
Josh took his first customer on 01/05/2013, and after just a couple of years, he expanded the shop from a small 2-artist spot to a comfy 4-artist spot by knocking down a wall.
This means Lamar Street Tattoo Club has always been in the same historic location on Lamar Street.
“We got a bit bigger, upgraded, and expanded, but here at 1709 S Lamar Street we have remained.”
After 2 years, Lamar Street Tattoo Club branched out to specialize in laser tattoo removals as well, and have upgraded their laser multiple times since then to stay on the cutting edge. Lamar Street Tattoo Club has had a few artists and front room staff come and go over the years, but they are always growing, expanding, and improving.
