Welcome, Santana Woodring!

We have a new addition to the PMA Family! Three cheers for Santana Woodring!

Drawing before grade school, Santana showed early enthusiasm for art. Tattoos gained her interest in high school, and remained her artistic focus all the way through receiving her Bachelor's degree, focusing in Fine Arts.

She enjoys traditional, as well as, digital painting and drawing. She loves a wide variety of tattoo styles including floral tattoos, painterly tattoos, pointillism, and realism.

The part of tattooing she most enjoys is coming together with clientele to create unique, original work of art.

Girls Rock Benefit Exhibit -March 10th 6-8:30pm

 

Sara Eve's "Bailando con La Muerte" shadow box will be showing soon...

We are so excited to announce that we will be participating in the Girls Rock Benefit show on March 10th 6-8:30pm. Please join us at Percolate Art Gallery, 317 S Trenton Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15221 to support young ladies in the pursuit or music/preforming arts. I am so happy that organizations such as this exist to help foster and develop young ladies in Rock'n'roll. Encouraging young women to create art benefits them not only mentally, but also emotionally, and physically. I am so honored to help support this exhibit.

 

See you there!

Guest Spot at King Cobra

 

The first shop I ever worked at was in State College, Pennsylvania. It was called Tattoo Marks Studio II located on Calder Way. It was the tattoo shop that my dad got his dragon tattoo from, the tattoo that first sparked my interest in tattooing. When I was seven, my dad got this tattoo from Timmy Tatts. I was immediately obsessed with the idea of drawing designs on my skin.

 

 

I drew on myself nearly everyday, no matter how much my parents urged me to stop. I drew designs on myself, my homework, my notes and my friends. Tattoos fascinated me. When I was old enough to get my first tattoo, I went back to Tattoo Marks and got tattooed my Timmy's brother, Lowercase j. My first tattoo was my first experience in a tattoo shop, the tattoo shop that I got my first desk position at eventually. I am very grateful to be able to return to this shop on guest spots. It still feels a bit surreal to reflect on those days at the front desk as I tattoo clients at Tattoo Marks, now known as King Cobra Tattoo.

Wigle Whiskey Bottle Release!


Our very own, Sara Eve Rivera has recently collaborated with Wigle Whiskey on this packaging design. Read more about the collaboration below.


Demeter, the Greek goddess of the harvest, and her bees, or “melissae,” present a spirit created by fermenting and distilling local fall honey before macerating in whole botanicals. As part of the Wigle Brewers Series, we then aged the resulting Landlocked Spiced spirit in a single 53-gallon barleywine beer barrel from East End Brewing Co. for two years and partnered with Sara Eve Rivera for label artwork and design inspiration. With a nose of honeysuckle, a sweet earthy wineyness, and notes of nutmeg, cloves, and honey on the tongue, Demeter is a unique addition to the Landlocked family.

The Demeter is a honey spirit made from a 100% Honey and infused with whole, organic botanicals--roasted orange peel, cocoa nibs, whole vanilla beans and cinnamon then aged in used barrels that previously aged barleywine beer and before that aged bourbon whiskey.

 

We Stand With Standing Rock!

We here at PMA Tattoos believe that clean water is a human right, and we will do whatever we can to show solidarity with the Water Protectors, as they bravely stand up against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

We are offering tattoos of the pictured traditional Sioux design for a donation made in store directly to Standing Rock.  This design is by water protector Stephanie Big Eagle of the Oceti Sakowin (Great Sioux Nation).

The pipeline is slated to travel underneath the Missouri River, thereby contaminating drinking water.  Additionally, it is planned to run through sacred Native land, and threatens to destroy Native burial grounds.   The Morton County Sheriff's Department has been terrorizing Water Protectors with water cannons, rubber bullets, sound cannons and more.  This is not acceptable to us at PMA, and we are happy to do whatever we can to show our solidarity.

Exciting Things In The Works At PMA

Today we welcomed Karl George Films into the shop to shoot a fun promotional short for Yelp! We had a few friends stop by for cameos, and it was a lot of fun. We are so looking forward to sharing it with you this week!

Also, as of today, we have a new Shop Girl! From now on, Juliette will be handling much of the scheduling, emailing, and social media presence.  Stop on by and meet her, she is very excited to be joining the PMA team!

As always, be sure to follow us on Instagram @PMA_tattoo and on Facebook to keep up with Sara Eve's latest work, and all our upcoming events!

Utterly Grateful to Officially Welcome You to PMA!

So humbly honored and excited to be officially open! I look forward to many years of fond memories and experiences with PMA Tattoo.

I named the shop PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) as a reminder to myself to stay positive and to have the correct frame of mind. Life can really get tough and Keeping POSITIVE may not always easy to do. The shop's name is a reminder to strive for positivity while providing our best to our clients.

 

I want this shop to pour positivity into it's work.  I want this shop to be a safe place for free thinking and accepting minds to feel comfortable committing to something quite amazing, a permanent mark on their body.

We do not take this honor lightly. The honor to forever change another person's appearance, to mark a very specific time of their life. To be a part of a very specfic time of their life.

Look forward to meeting you!

-Sara Eve
