Meet The Team at Nokomis Tattoo Shop

At Nokomis Tattoo Shop we have a strong focus on Walk-In Tattoos but we can also schedule your next consultation or appointment for larger tattoos.




I’m born and raised in South Minneapolis. I started working here in late 2020. You’ll see me at the tat shack 5 days a week. If I’m not at the shop you’ll find me out thrifting, cycling, traveling or fucking around with tech decks.
Karen - Nokomis Tattoo



I’m your resident Sunday and Monday receptionist! When I’m not at the shop you can find me tending my two cats and plants. I’m a true Capricorn in that I’m sarcastic and I like money. I have an extensive collection of lipsticks, books and sunglasses. You can also catch me doing hair at Uptown Salon Lofts in Minneapolis.
