Jackalope Tattoo

In 2013 Bambi Wendt was contacted out of the blue and asked if she wanted to buy a tattoo shop from the previous owner. When asked what inspired her to start an all-female tattoo shop, she said, “There's a sense of community among women. This is also an industry that can (not always, but can be) very toxic to women. Almost every single one of my staff has been molested or assaulted by their former bosses. But this industry is so competitive, you take it just so you can keep your apprenticeship or your job. The most important thing to me, however, was to create a space where EVERYONE was welcome, felt comfortable, and safe to be themselves. It's scary enough to walk into a tattoo studio, it's even worse when you're made to feel small, stupid, or silly. That doesn't happen here. We do our best to include everyone in our “sorority," men, women, or however you choose to identify. This place works because there is so much love and acceptance between everyone. We accept you how you come.”
