With tattoos reaching a level of mainstream popularity on par with beards and craft beer, there is no shortage of tattoo shops looking to give you fresh ink. But with much variety comes choice. Unlike choice of beer, finding the right tattoo shop is a decision that will forever stay with you, or at least on your skin.
The fine folks at Transformation Gallery recognize the importance of this decision and have put an immense amount of effort into creating an atmosphere that is impressively beautiful, inspiring and exceedingly safe. Located in Springfield, Missouri, Transformation combines a stunning fine art gallery with a professional tattoo and body piercing studio.
