Red Octopus Tattoos is a family-owned and operated business, established back in 1992 by Dottie and her late husband, Easy Fortner. We pride ourselves in good customer service, a warm, friendly environment, and being able to employ the best artists in the DMV area. When you come into our shop, we guarantee you will leave with a tattoo or piercing that was done in a clean, sterile environment. We encourage questions about our sterilization methods and overall procedures regarding tattoos and/or body piercings. If you take a look through our artists' portfolios, we guarantee you will find an artist who is qualified to do your tattoo. Custom designs and walk-ins are both welcome. We thank those of you who have supported us over these past 30 years, and welcome those who have never been in before.
Job Opportunities
With 5 busy locations, there are always job opportunities for experienced tattoo artists. We are looking for well-rounded, professional artists who have an updated portfolio. We are not looking to apprentice. Please contact Duffy Fortner or Pat Aikin.
