Attention tattoo artists! Awesome opportunity for the right people to grow an amazing career alongside our incredibly talented crew! Pass the word along to a hardworking and talented artist!
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!!!!
We are extremely proud to announce that our founder Alex Feliciano will be a part of CITICIEN: 100 Puerto Rican Artists, 100 Years of the Jones-Shafroth Act art exhibition this weekend in New York City. Signed in 1917 by President Wilson, The Jones-Shafroth Act granted U.S. citizenship to anyone born in Puerto Rico on or after April 25, 1898, becoming a complex and significant turning point for the people of Puerto Rico. Following strict visual guidelines of size and a black-and-white only palette, the exhibit’s theme is one of visual consistency and commitment, acting as a metaphor of the unified voice and solidarity of Puerto Ricans during this critical political time.

The exhibit was created by Defend Puerto Rico, a multimedia project designed to document and celebrate Puerto Rican creativity, resilience, and resistance. Defend PR seeks to deepen connections between Puerto Ricans on the island and throughout the diaspora, in the hopes of nurturing greater solidarity, collaboration, and kinship.
The CITICIEN opening reception is today, Thursday March 2nd, from 6pm to 10pm at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center in New York City. If you are in the NYC area take some time to check out amazing work from 100 different artists. The CITICIEN exhibit runs from March 2nd to March 5th.

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.
