Studio 13 has been in operation in beautiful Fort Wayne, Indiana since 1999. Fort Wayne has been great to us. In return, we promise to always make art our first priority. We will continue to be Fort Wayne’s best custom tattoo shop. We promise to provide you with a unique, custom piece of art that you can be proud to display forever.
We are not your typical tattoo shop. The old saying, “You’re never done learning,” has been applied to Studio 13 several times over. Each week we hold an Art Night where our staff comes together to produce fine art, usually unrelated to tattooing. These weekly studies create an amazing learning environment for our staff. We work on every aspect of art, from composition to color theory, no stone is unturned in our push for the highest quality of art. We are always working to get better. Monthly, we hold a critique night, focusing on tattoo art. All of these efforts are made to ensure each tattoo is better, technically & artistically, than the last. We have even designed our tattoo shop with open view tattooing in mind. Each booth is located directly across from another. While we can close them off for privacy, the open view gives the artist the ability to get real time feedback from their colleagues, making sure you get the highest quality tattoo possible.
The Farris brothers have owned & operated Studio 13 since 2005. Jake Farris, the older brother, came in last in his Pinewood derby when he was a young child. He built the entire car himself. Jes, on the right, could grow a beard at the age of 13. Both brothers are pretty nice & if you stop in to Studio 13 Tattoo you’re sure to meet them.
