Traditional Ink Tattoo Studio has one, very simple mission; Give clients an exceptional tattoo experience through quality work, in a safe environment, and with world-class customer service!


Dan - Owner/Artist, is not your typical tattoo artist. Before ever picking up a tattoo machine, Dan was a tattoo collector. He has traveled the world collecting tattoos from some of the best artists in the industry. Through his travels, Dan has been able to adopt best practices from top artists and shops and used them to build a world-class tattoo experience for his clients here in Madison, WI with Customer Service at the center of it all.

When it came time for Dan to decide where to open his private studio, Downtown Madison on the shore of  beautiful Lake Mendota was the only place he considered. 

Dan specializes in the Bold Lines/Bright Designs of American Traditional Tattoo as well as the Beautiful and Delicate style of Fine-Line Tattoos.
