Exciting News!

Some big news for 2015! 12 oz. Studios in Brooklawn, NJ is moving! Well . . . just down the street. Our new shop will be located at 300 Crescent Blvd (also called Route 130), behind the Brooklawn Bowling Alley and close to Clancy’s Pub.  Construction and renovation have already begun and we hope to be in our new home in early 2015. The new Brooklawn shop is being designed with not just tattoos in mind. Alex has also incorporated into the design a fully functional art space as well as photography studio. The new Brooklawn shop will be a place to foster all of our creative endeavors while putting our primary focus on the quality and care we take in every tattoo we do. Needless to say we are beyond excited to move into our new shop as well as firmly plant our roots in the borough of Brooklawn; a place we’ve called home for the last 10 years.

Here are some photos of the construction taking place. Make sure you follow 12 oz. Studios everywhere (Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter) for news and info on the new shop!

Happy Holidays from 12 oz. Studios!

Happy holidays!  Tis the season of giving, getting, and eating way too much food (next to Thanksgiving of course).  Oh, and probably a coworker or two drunkenly embarrassing themselves at the company Christmas party.  And a year’s supply of tube socks from your parents.  Sorry, I’m getting off topic!  The most important part of the holidays for 12 oz. studios is we get to help the less fortunate.  From now until December 23rd both our Brooklawn and Deptford, NJ shops are accepting new, unwrapped toys (value of $5 or more) for the Center for Family Services of New Jersey.  These toys will go to local, needy kids to make sure they have a great Christmas this year.  And, to thank you for your donation you’ll receive $20 off of a tattoo (tattoo must be $100 or more) or $10 off of any piercing!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  Well, almost.  All of us here at 12 Oz Studios are excited for the coming of fall.  The chance to break out your favorite hoodie for the cooler weather, the reemergence of the Church of the Pumpkin Spice Everything, Oktoberfest, but most importantly it’s time for Halloween!  Scary stuff, costumes, candy and all!  Also, Halloween tattoos!  Here are some examples of the great Halloween and fall themed tattoos that we get to create on our amazing customers.
