Our Story


The mother/daughter team of Laurna and Gaia Marika opened Mr. Shorty's Tattoo Emporium on September 13, 2006. 

It was the culmination of a shared dream by two artists with the same vision.. to build a place where clients and artists could work together in collaboration to create the best in personal body art. Artists at Mr. Shorty's share a common philosophy that we believe sets our studio apart. This philosophy is simple: every piece is an opportunity to produce GREAT art. Your skin is precious and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with you to create a living exhibition
of our work. 

Without YOU, we as tattoo artists have no canvas! 

Thank you for considering the Artists at Mr. Shorty's Tattoo Emporium.
