About Us

Located at 1313 S. Congress Avenue, next door to the legendary Continental Club in the heart of Austin’s SoCo district, Southside is known for having talented, versatile tattoo artists and a vibe that is friendly and welcoming to all. Tattoos take time (even though you're 'just going to get one'...) so you might as well spend it with good, interesting folks who are happy to have you. 

Shop owners Bart Willis and Chris Gunn have carefully selected the most talented and friendly artists to represent Southside, and between them they can produce any style you want. They work collaboratively with you to make each tattoo a unique piece of art that is flattering and ages gracefully. Look through our gallery and artist pages for a glimpse into the variety of styles and talent available to you, and then come by the shop to meet your artist and schedule the initial appointment.
