Tat-Fu Tattoo was established in 2001 by Bob V. He opened the 350 square foot tattoo shop in the 1st level of theMonte Vista Hotel in Historic downtown Flagstaff, AZ. The shop thrived, & was successful for the next two years in this
location. In 2003, Nick Lawrence and Tony Naggar took over ownership of Tat-Fu Tattoo. The shop remained in this small downtown location until 2007, when they made the decision to expand and move to another building on Route 66. Tat-Fu Tattoo is now located in a 2700 square foot building at 104 E. Route 66 in downtown Flagstaff. Currently,Tat-Fu Tattoo employs 4 artists; Nick Lawrence, Josh Nelson, Cameron Chase, and Bob V, as well as one body piercer;
“Suga” Shayne Spyra.
On the first Friday of every September Tat-Fu Tattoo hosts a party and art show commemorating the move to the new location. In addition to providing quality tattoos and piercings every day, Tat-Fu Tattoo also carries an extensive selection of the finest body jewelry. All employees at the shop are OSHA certified, and have met all requirements through the Coconino County Health Department for Body Art Certification. Tat-Fu Tattoo is routinely monitored and regulated by the Coconino County Health Department, and surpasses all safety and sanitation measures. In terms of the future of Tat-Fu Tattoo… The Route 66 location has turned out to be ideal, and Tat-Fu is there to stay. The beauty of this location is that it not only provides a place for the artists to provide a valuable service to their clients, but they are also able to display a variety of other art mediums throughout the shop. The artists of Tat-Fu Tattoo look forward to representing and promoting the shop and themselves through attending Tattoo Conventions and hosting future art shows.
