About Us

Iowa City Tattoo, LLC is considered the premier spot for exceptional tattoo designs. Old School Jeff has the unique skills and years of experience to create everything from simple fine-line tattoos to large, intricate pieces. Jeff started tattooing in the early 2000s while working as a body piercer. After an old-school apprenticeship in Seattle, WA, he moved back to his home state of Iowa to serve the community he loves. Tattooing is Jeff's passion. He enjoys meeting and talking with so many different people, getting to know a little about them, and creating tattoos that reflect their personalities. A true family business, Jeff's wife Chelsea supports the shop by managing the schedule and appointments.

Iowa City Tattoo, LLC has been in the area for more than 15 years under different names. Jeff has even inked the grown children of some of his past clients! In fact, Iowa City Press Citizen listed Iowa City Tattoo as the Best Tattoo Shop in June of 2012, 2013, and 2014.
