The 2017 Center for Family Services Gift Donation.

 

As in past years, our annual Center for Family Services gift donation was a huge success.  Our amazing clients (like always) came through when we needed them the most and donated much-needed gifts to those less fortunate families in our area.  Everything donated ensured that those families had a very, merry Christmas this year.

We say it all the time, but we truly have the best clients anyone could ask for.  You all step up and deliver every single time when we ask and for that we are eternally grateful.

Also, congratulations to our winners of our $50 and $100 gift certificate raffle:  Lauren Brown, Jessica Pineiro, Becky Huskins, and Shayna Mele.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from all of us at 12 oz. Studios!

A HUGE Thank You to Everyone Who Donated to Hurricane Relief Efforts.

We can’t begin to thank everyone enough who donated various items to help the citizens of Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria.  Our own Alex Feliciano and Jose Bolorin where particularly moved, both being of Puerto Rican descent and frequent visitors to the island where their friends and family still reside.  Because of you we where able to donate a whopping 5, packed to the brim, car loads to the Puerto Rican Civic Association located in Hammonton, NJ.  From there all of the goods donated will be loaded onto a trailer and sent to the island.  These donations will make a meaningful impact in the day to day life of those working to rebuild their homes and ultimately their and their community’s lives.

It’s going to be a long road to recovery so we’ll be watching as to where 12 oz. Studios can help next (stay tuned).  We can’t say this enough:  we have the best clients anyone could ask for.  You always deliver whenever need be and for that we are eternally grateful.  And, a special thank you to the folks at the Puerto Rican Civic Association in Hammonton, NJ for organizing this entire event and coordinating efforts with the island.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Art show thank you

From all of us at 12 oz. Studios, we’d like to send a HUGE thank you out to all who attended our 12th year anniversary art show, “12 Years of 12 oz Studios”. We hope you had just as much fun hanging out and seeing brilliant works of art as we did creating them. It was great to take a trip down memory lane and see pieces from former 12 oz.’ers that we were fortunate enough to work with and see all of the old banners and signs Alex had created back when the shop first opened.
It goes without saying, but our amazing group of clients is the reason for our continued success as well as inspiration to create incredible tattoos and beautiful pieces of art. For those who were unable to attend you are in luck! All of the artwork displayed at the opening reception will remain up at our Brooklawn shop so feel free to stop by, we’d love to see you! Thanks again everyone, and we can’t wait to put on another show!

The week that things happen 

Two years ago I said goodbye to a shop I spent like 13 years in. 2 and 1/2 working for someone, then acquiring it and beginning 12 oz Studios. I spent 10 years in this building as 12 oz studios. Building a name for myself and creating a brand that can be trusted. It is surreal to know this is where I really grew up. In a tattoo shop. So many memories. So many struggles. From temporarily living in the shop, in order to make my dreams happen.  To making the best friends a person can have. This is the day I removed our logo from the building I was renting. To installing it into the building that we own. Sometime the universe knows what it’s doing. This week I also celebrate my 20th year tattooing, the 2nd year in our new building and last January the 12th year of 12 oz studios. We will celebrate, stay tuned. Thank you past and my present artist. You are the sh!£!!!!!!! You, our customers, you are our reasons why we get to do what we do. We ❤️❤️❤️❤️you!!!!

12 years at 12 oz. Studios!

12-12-collage

Today, January 13, 2017, we celebrate our twelfth anniversary.  When we opened our doors in 2005 with just two artists and a piercer, we could not have imagined our little shop would grow into the force we are today.  We were just a few artists that wanted a space to feed our creativity.  Since then, we’ve flourished.  12 oz. Studios now has two locations, ten artists, and the only Association of Professional Piercers member in southern New Jersey.

In light of this momentous occasion, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone, both past and present, that helped us along the way.  Thank you to our dedicated crew of tattoo artists and piercers that have encouraged and inspired us.  Thank you to our receptionists for keeping our shops running like well-oiled machines.  Thank you to our manager for always dotting the i’s, crossing the t’s, and keeping everything glued together.

And to you, our loyal customers, we give you our sincerest thank you for your business, your ideas, and your friendship.  You continue to give us the greatest gift – the opportunity to create.
