About Vivid


At Vivid Tattoo our award winning artists are committed to creating quality artwork that is custom designed to fit your individual style. We are Knoxville's only all female staff tattoo shop, and take pride in our open, welcoming, and clean environment. Stop by anytime and see for yourself why we've been voted Knoxville's Finest!



Due to the complex nature of tattooing, we are unable to provide quotes via phone or email. You may stop by any time for a consultation and personal quote during our regular business hours.  Shop minimum for tattoos is $100. All tattoo appointments require a $100 non-refundable deposit, made in person at the shop, in the form of cash or credit card.  This $100 will hold your appointment spot and cover your drawing fees.  The $100 will come off of the price of the tattoo when you get it done. If you need to reschedule, please do so as soon as possible.  If you don't show up, don't give 48 hour notice to reschedule, or are more than 15 minutes late and we have to reschedule, you have to put down another $100.  You must be 18 to get tattooed in the state of Tennessee and present a valid state ID.

We will perform ear lobe piercing on minors age 6 and up.  We will not perform any other piercings on anyone under 18, even with parent’s permission.

Parents must be in the shop with the minor at all times.

We have release forms that the parent must fill out. We will make a copy of the parent’s driver’s license on the back of the release form, if the parent does not have a driver’s license or state issued ID card, we will not pierce the minor. The Health Department also requires that we copy a birth certificate or state issued ID for the minor. If the last names of the parent/guardian and minor are different, then a proof of guardianship will be required.
