12 years at 12 oz. Studios!


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.
