Jaxx and Kristen have teamed up as co-owners of Sanctuary Tattoo Emporium in Plymouth MA. They joined forces when they realized they worked well together, had complimentary artistic talents and would draw a diverse clientele. Jaxx loves inking every type of design, and Renaissance Biblical scenes and characters are his particular favorites. Kristen is known for her precision, specializing in geometric and other designs that require absolute accuracy.

Not one great country can be named, from the polar regions in the north to New Zealand in the south, in which the aborigines do not tattoo themselves.

I've been looking for a new artist for a while now and I am happy to say that Jaxx and Kris can tattoo me anytime! My sisters and I came here to get matching tattoos and we walked out incredibly happy. Their lines are clean, their work is beautiful, they aren't pushy, and they take pride in what they do. I also had Jaxx fix a tattoo of mine that was done by another artist from a different shop and it is ten times better than it ever was before. If you're looking for a chill shop with excellent work, I highly recommend this shop! I will be back at Sanctuary for more art in the future! Thanks Jaxx and Kris!

FAQ


How much do tattoos hurt?

Well tattoos are generally not pain free. The level of discomfort is minimal, and varies depending on the placement. It is often compared to scratching a sunburn or any small unexpected scratch. Luckily, our bodies come with a built in defense system. After the first couple of minutes, your body’s endorphins flood the area, dulling the effects. All in all most find it is much less painful than they anticipated. 


How much do tattoos cost?

The cost varies depending on the size of your tattoo, the complexity, and where you place it on your body. At Sanctuary we enjoy what we do and try to keep all costs as minimal as possible. We take great pride in being one of the leading shops in inexpensive yet quality driven art. All shops carry a minimum, ours is $50.00, with occasional exceptions to the minimum… on the latter end, our reasonable pricing on larger or more complex tats is noticeable, even eye brow raising, as we work at making tattooing affordable for all.


How do I take care of my tattoo?

Ah…. we have worked long and hard on our aftercare system. It works great, it’s pretty simple and we will be more than happy to teach you all about it when you come get tattooed. You can call us if you need any advise, we would be happy to chat with anyone about proper aftercare.


Will my new tattoo fade?

Here at Sanctuary we use a combination of care, top rated inks, and patience to assure that your tattoos will remain bright and vibrant for years and years to come.


Can I bring my own tattoo ideas and tattoo designs with me?

Ok… while as artists, we take a lot of pride in our custom work, we encourage creativity and welcome outside art as well. If you have a general idea of what you like, we would love to help you to design a work of art all your own. We also carry a compliment of custom and flash art to fulfill every taste and need.


Can you fix my old tattoos?

YES! Here at Sanctuary, we thoroughly enjoy helping people restore, enhance, or repair their old art. This is one of our specialties. All restorations are enthusiastically guaranteed. Everyone should have art they could be proud of… let us help you feel that too. Now should you need a cover up… 


Can you cover up tattoos?

Are we simply the best at cover ups? Yes. Are we simply the least expensive at cover ups? Yes. Why? Simply… we care. A tattoo that needs to be covered is a tattoo making someone unhappy. At Sanctuary, we simply love the challenge of making new awesome artwork out of an old “REGRAT”. We have never turned down a cover up or met one that is too difficult. If you think yours is… come chat with us… all our consults are free.


Why are we one of the best tattoo shops in MA?
Other than the years of experience and portfolio to back it, we pride ourselves on building friendships with our “clients.” We don’t really like that word.
