About Us

Welcome to Thrash’s Tattoo!

2001 was a landmark year: we opened our first tattoo shop, starting small in a strip mall in the spring, and we were married that fall.  In 2004, we moved to our current West Main location.  Then in 2008, we built Wild Idea Tattoo on Knollwood Drive.  Throw in a couple kids and dogs and soon enough,  you’ve been at it for 20 years!

We’ve seen many trends and fads over the years in the world of tattoo and body piercing.   But one thing stays the same: people want quality work from quality artists.  And that’s what we have right here – the best crew providing the best work.  Talented and fun, hard-working and dedicated.  We love our Tattoo Family! (Read more about each of us on the Our Artists page and view our work.)

Appointments are strongly recommended, especially if you’re traveling from a distance, and during the summertime.  We accommodate walk-in appointments as much as possible, but call ahead… we are busy!  We LOVE brainstorming and creating custom body art just for you!

Come enjoy the beautiful Black Hills, and we look forward to seeing you soon! THANKS for choosing us for your body art!
