Tora Tattoo was established in 1994 by long time artist Jamie Izumi.
Prior to his opening of a public tattoo studio, Jamie began winning awards for his work; this began in New York State in 1993 at the Am-Jam tattoo convention. His awards and accomplishments were the beginning drive to his career and life in tattooing. Since then, he has attended and worked at countless conventions throughout North America and by doing so has gained many friends colleagues and peers across the industry, alongside with winning many more awards for his work.
Through the years Tora Tattoo has held a high standard for its quality of tattoo work. To this day only a select few can be the diverse, talented and reliable artists that you will find here at tora. We strive to always be educated and informed with what’s new and up and coming in the tattoo industry. Educating ourselves is the first step in providing the best and safest tattoo for our clients.
In recent years we have firmly established our place in the professional tattoo laser removal field. There is only one way to do this; and as we see it, doing it the right way is the only way. We have two certified laser specialists available. They are trained on all types of lasers, specifically the Q-Plus series laser used for our tattoo removal. Our laser and facility is fully “Compliant ready” for future licencing that will soon be implemented and mandatory.
Feel free to contact us any time so we can guide you through the process of any of the services we offer, or to answer any questions/concerns you may have.
