Spidermonkey Tattoo

Long ago in the temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, a young boy read about the mystical and awesome-sounding “spider monkey.” What a magnificent beast! he thought. Surely there was no greater creature in all the realms. He drifted to sleep, dreaming of furry, eight-legged primates.

But he grew up and learned what we all learn as adults: the world is not a magical place. It is a normal place, with normal monkeys. So he put his learnin’ pants on and trained to become one of the greatest tattooers the world has ever known.

In 2001, this great tattooer opened a little shop in Olympia, Washington (only the third in town, at the time) and immediately knew to name it after the cryptozooligical phantasm of his childhood: Spidermonkey Tattoos.

Bryan Childs quickly established himself as a little different from everyone else, and those differences now form the core of the Spidermonkey experience: customized and professional and a bit eccentric. And our clients wouldn’t have it any other way.
