Big Changes are coming and we are very excited.

Ascension Tattoo
Chapel Hill's Premier Tattoo Shop

With a move to Franklin St. Ascension Tattoo, formerly known as Tar Heel Tattoo, has dug its roots into the culture and life of Chapel Hill. As the oldest and most trusted shop in Chapel Hill, Ascension Tattoo is a small space with lots to offer. Our artists are there for you step-by-step. We feel the better connection the client and artist make the better the piece the client receives.

Lettering, original art, freehand and realism are the mainstay of this shop. Friendly people who will make you happy and comfortable whether it's your first time or your a seasoned pro.

When the designs are chosen with care, tattoos have a power and magic all their own. They decorate the body but they also enhance the soul.
