Nokomis Tattoo believes in being a full part of the community and giving back. We host blood drives, pet rescue events and support other community events. We not only try to give back to the area by being involved in community based projects, but we have committed to donate 5% of our profits to charity as well.
Not Just Tattoos
Tattooing is something that we do, but we love to support our community and give back.
We believe in being thankful for the opportunity to tattoo the locals and beyond, because of that we put a portion of all profits back into the community. Each month we pick two groups to donate to.
Giving Back To The Proper Channels
We also feel strongly about giving to non partisan groups. Just as our clientele, staff, and neighborhood is diverse, we want to make sure we give to groups and programs that want to better everyone not just a chosen few because of their political affiliation.
When you visit the shop you can see our plaque in the lobby that shows who we’ve donated to.
You can also keep up with these by reading our blog.
We are proud to say we’re the first shop in Minneapolis to go completely paperless on our release forms. This was a sound environmental and economic business decision.
