Leila's back in March 2019!

One of our beloved artists, Leila Willis Newton, is returning from Haida Gwaii, BC in early March with some new ideas for adding color to your life. Her schedule fills up quickly, so drop her a line! She will be in the shop March 1-27. Stop by and say hi!

Our artists have many talents!

Did you know that we have some interesting characters at Southside Tattoo? Our very own Royce plays in a punk rock n' roll band called Rebel Flesh! Catch him doing musical things this upcoming February 8th at Sahara Lounge in Austin, TX. If you live in San Marcos, catch him Feb. 10th at the Railyard!


We love cookies.  And thankfully, folks love to bring us these delicious goodies.  To thank them, we like to put their picture up in the bathroom.  Why the bathroom?  Why not?  So if you want to be famous around here, bring us something sweet!  We like them all...chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, peanut butter...we don't discriminate, and we will thank you forever.

What's up Beav?

Who doesn't love a good beaver shot??  Around here, pretty much anything goes, so long as there's a good story behind it... So what's the story with the beaver?  Come on by and ask Bart, it's his friend...
