Attention ladies: Re-Ink-R-Nation specializes in women’s tattoos and piercing — from Japanese kanji brush style tattoos to fixing ugly tattoos from your past (hence the shop’s name) to permanent make-up tattoos that look completely natural. At least according to Mamasan, the artist and piercer. Actually, male tattoo artists along the boardwalk regularly send Mamasan clients who need her special skills with female body art.

Mamasan speaks JAPANESE.

    I had a 10 inch dragon on my back that was about 10 years old and wanted to have it re-worked. After checking out some of the other boardwalk shops, she was the only one that immediately saw some potential. A lot of the other artists wanted to completely cover and/or start from scratch, which wasn’t necessarily what I wanted. Ended up getting some Japanese style waves added to it and the dragon itself completely re-inked and colored. Turned out awesome. She’s been tattooing for years so she’s not afraid of giving you her opinion about the wrong way of tattooing, but she has no ego in regards to working with you till you’re satisfied with a design. Japanese style tattoos are definitely her strengths. Her shop while on the boardwalk is secluded and no frills. she’s also hilarious.
