The Beginning…

Ernie White began tattooing in 1973. Shortly after he began in the industry, he opened up a shop of his own in Butler, New Jersey in 1974. There, he became one of the staples of the tattooing community. This tradition continued for decades as he tattooed generations of families in Northern New Jersey throughout his career.

Sadly, Ernie passed away in 2013 after more than 35 years in the tattoo business. Ernie’s legacy is continued through his wife, Maryann, and his son, Casey; along with the talented crew of artists who, like family, help to carry on tattooing in this new age of the medium. Ernie’s memory will continue to live on in the shops he built, where work will always be done in a safe, friendly, and clean environment.
