Not only do I have ink but as an ER Doc I see a lot! of the problems from bad shops. That’s why I trusted my new ink work to Mike Cummings at Inksomnia. The shop is great and very clean and he takes ALL the steps to ensure safety and prevention of problems.

I would not just trust my body and my health to any artist but after meeting Mike and checking out his shop I knew I had a perfect place to get my new work done. Take it from someone who has seen the nightmares of people trying just any shop – Don’ t risk it – Not only is Mike a great artist and takes the time to work with you but he takes extra steps to ensure your safety. Tell him Dr. Mark sent ya — thanks Mike.


I shopped around for a tattoo studio for several months looking for the right shop. Never satisfied with what I saw. See, I work for a hospital and was a paramedic for several years so cleanliness and sterile technique are a must for me. Just walking into Inksomnia I was impressed with how clean their place is and the courteousness of their staff. They answered my questions on sterilization and how things were cleaned.

I met with Mike to discuss my tattoo design and its location. He took care into explaining the details of the procedure and made me feel very comfortable for my first tattoo. He did a wonderful job. I was even impressed that he asked for feed back as he worked to make sure it was exactly what I wanted. I could not have imagined a better experience and would recommend the place to get your first or next tattoo.


I’m in the medical field and so I know what to look for when it comes to a clean and infection free environment and Inksomnia is one of the cleanest and most professional studios I’ve been to. Having been to several tattoo parlors in my life, Inksomnia has a firm commitment to making sure the customer feels safe, welcome, and is ultimately happy with their experience. It’s rare to find great artists that also run a great business. I’ll definitely be coming back to Inksomnia to continue adding to my own tattoo art collection.


I just got done getting pierced at Inksomnia. Everyone was very friendly and the shop is clean. Jason did my piercing and he was awesome. I was a bit nervous at first, but Jason made me feel comfortable. I have gotten piercings and tattoos at other shops, and my experience at Inksomnia was so much better. I won’t go anywhere else! I can’t say enough good things about Jason!


After 7 years of fear, I finally decided it was time! My 46th birthday and Inksomnia was my present! A great choice – really clean shop, nice people, great artwork. My husband and I did it together and couldn’t be happier! Ask for Jon – he was so great about my fears and led me step by step through the process. I have to say that the whole experience was great – from Mike the owner to all the others at the shop – a first class place all the way.


I just got home on leave from Iraq and wanted to “do something” with a Celtic cross tattoo I already had. I had a vague idea, but Shane went nuts with it! I could not have imagined a better shield to go around my cross. Shane took a common Celtic cross tattoo and turned it into a work of art. I will go back for more!


The entire staff was professional from the time I entered the shop. The atmosphere was very relaxing and comfortable to be in. Jeff took a simple script font of what I was looking for and perfected the design to make it unique. The work area was VERY clean & private. The final art completed by Jeff was EXCELLENT!

The owner (Mike) came in and chatted and even entertained my son while he waited (Xbox Video game) so he would not be bored sitting around. In closing, Brand-X which is attached had some awesome daily prices on clothing.

The best tattoo

Inksomnia Tattoo Studios philosophy is simple and yet so rare in the industry:

Interested in getting a tattoo but not sure what you want? Come talk to one of the skilled artists and hash out your idea. They know what questions to ask to begin sketching a design. They will take you through each aspect of the design until you are excited about the tattoo that has been custom designed for you. Finally, before the inking begins, you will get a stencil of your design to get a glimpse of how your vision will be translated to your skin.

Whether you’ve been a collector for many years, you have something small in mind, or you just want to come in to look around and get some ideas, everybody that comes in is going to be treated like they’re getting their whole body tattooed by us. The artists will meet you where you’re at, discover your interests, and then create a custom piece you’ll love for life.

A few featured favorite styles:

  • Neo-traditional: a mix of the traditional with a new school flare.
  • Art: bring in a picture and we can translate it into a permanent work of body art.
  • Portraits: memorialize someone close to your heart.
  • Old school, traditional with bold blacks and simple shading.
  • Cartoons
  • Dark with a bright pop
  • Custom: take a stock design or one of your own creations and make it uniquely yours!
