Anchors Away Ink

Des Moines , Iowa
I'm Aaron "Lurch" Alter, I have been tattooing for 16 years now. I like to do traditional Americana , American Japanese and custom art. I can work from any reference you bring in to custom design work created specifically for you. I am open 7 days a week until 6 p.m. I can book later appointments after my evening dinner break if later works for you. Rain or shine I live a short walk from my shop. We are located at 2005 SE 6th St , Des Moines Iowa. Next to the City, Iowa, and possibly worl famous B&B Grocery and Deli. We recently moved to our new location 4 months ago. We love the new neighborhood. I am state regulated and licesend. We use all new disposable equipment. I use vegan friendly bright and bold pigments. Clean and friendly shop environment. If you're wanting some custom work' swing on in and lets get you in where you fit in. -Aaron

I have four tattoos one on going from Aaron, I have brought my brother and girlfriend to get work from him as well. Aaron is a great tattoo artist and person, he works with people on payment and will sit down and talk to you about the tattoo you want. I highly recommend him.
