Happy Holidays from 12 oz. Studios!

It’s that time of year again!  Time for the 12 oz. Studios annual holiday gift certificate sale with bonus bucks!

Here’s how it works!  Beginning Black Friday for every $100 you spend 12 oz. Studios is giving you an extra 20% in bonus bucks!  For example, you purchase a $100 gift certificate, you get $20 in bonus bucks, free!  $200 gift certificate, you get $40!  And, when you spend $500 or more you’ll get 25% in bonus bucks!  That’s $125 in bonus bucks!  Bonus bucks work just like a gift certificate.  Give them along with your gift or keep them for yourself (we won’t tell anyone)!  This deal won’t last forever.  Gift certificates with bonus bucks ends Saturday, December 24.


Since this is also the season of giving we are asking everyone to help 12 oz. Studios help children who are less fortunate in our area have the best Christmas ever this year.

At both 12 oz. Studios shops we will be holding our annual toy drive for children in need.  We are asking everyone to donate a new, unwrapped toy (valued at $5 or more) to either our Deptford or Brooklawn shop.  Toys will be sent to the Center for Family Services (www.centerffs.org) located in Woodbury, NJ.

And, to show our appreciation for your generosity we are holding a contest for a chance to win a $100 or a $50 12 oz. gift certificate!  Beginning Black Friday for every toy you donate your name will be entered for a chance to win.  The more toys you donate the more chances you’ll have (ex: 5 toys = 5 chances to win)!  Toy drive ends on Wed. Dec 14th.

It feels good to give! And, yes it’s also nice to get a little something in return, too!

Happy holidays!

Happy Trails Bobby Trefz!

“Sometimes there’s a man.  I won’t say a hero, ‘cause what’s a hero?  Sometimes there’s a man, and I’m talkin’ about the dude here, sometimes there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place.  He fits right in there, and that’s The Dude.” – The Stranger

Our lovable maniac, Bobby Trefz, is leaving after three fun and awe-inspiring art filled years with 12 oz. Studios.  For those who don’t know, Bobby and Alex Feliciano both got their start together at Body Art Tattoo in Stratford, NJ almost 20 years ago.  Bobby has entertained our artists and clients with his rendition of classic yacht rock jams along with choreographed dance routines.  He’s also been an incredible team member applying 20 years of experience to tattooing any style and helping guide our younger artists to perfect their craft.

Bobby will be joining the ranks of Art Machine Productions in Philadelphia, PA.  We wish Bobby nothing but the best and can’t wait to see him grow as an artist and watch his work evolve working next to Tim Pangburn and company.

Bobby’s last official day at 12 oz. Studios will be May 31st.  If you are looking to get tattooed by Bobby at 12 oz. he has openings on 5/26, 5/27, 5/28, 5/30 and 5/31.  Give us a call to schedule an appointment or stop by the Brooklawn shop (300 Crescent Blvd.).
