Southside Tattoo and Piercing

Tiim Baxley
Tim Baxley, Owner

Southside TattooLocated on White Way, across from the East Point MARTA train station, Southside Tattoo opened its doors in 2006, originally on West Cleveland Ave., just one block away.

The owner, Tim Baxley, chose East Point because he wanted to be a part of a community and he liked the small town feel of East Point.

“We offer a clean, comfortable environment that is conducive to creativity with several very talented professionals to serve all of your Tattoo or Piercing needs. We are "Atlanta's Friendliest Tattoo Shop", says Baxley. “At Southside, your body modification specialists, quality and dedication are not just words, instead, they are an integral part of our business model and craftsmanship”.

“The tattooists that work at Southside (Eric Scsavnicki, Ashton Anderson & Nate Pankratz) are artists and will provide you with a personalized tattoo designed to your specifications. Feel free to draw on the experience of your artist and don't hesitate to add your own input”, says Baxley. “Make sure you feel comfortable with the professional that will be Tattooing or Piercing you. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Our employees are thoroughly educated and willing to provide answers to any questions that you may have”.

Southside Tattoo is a distributor of H2Ocean aftercare spray for piercings & has a large selection
of jewelry for Body Piercings. Southside has supported various East Point & Tri-Cities events (Destination EP, 4th of July, Art Festivals, etc.) and says they will continue to do so in the future. If you have a local event coming up, please let them know about potential sponsorship opportunities. They are very happy to support the neighborhood that has supported them over the years.

*You must be 18 to get tattooed & 16 (with parental consent) to get pierced. (I.D. required)
