Arlington, Texas – May 20, 2021 – Tattoo Artist Eric grew up around tattoos and tattooing. His uncle owns and operates 360 Blues and Tattoos, and Eric has worked in DFW tattoo shops for the past 17 years before opening Crimson Spade Tattoo at 7807 South Cooper Street in Arlington.


“I started tattooing back in 2004 when reality shows like Miami Ink and LA Ink were creating a lot of buzz about artists and tattoos and a lot of people were just starting to get inked,” said Eric.


For many years Eric worked at tattoo shops near the Fort Worth Stockyards. “I had a lot of regular clients from all across the USA who came every year to visit Six Flags and always booked a tattoo appointment or two with me,” added Eric.


A versatile artist who has produced exceptional tattoos in a variety of styles, Eric is best known for his work doing colorful tattoos and for tattoos featuring black and grey ink designs.


“As far as styles, I have done watercolor, tribal, portrait, abstract, realistic, traditional; really, you name it, and I have done it,” said Eric.


When asked what makes the experience at Crimson Spade different, Eric said that he is striving to create a personal experience that makes his clients comfortable. “I don’t email designs, and I don’t go to the back to do the design,” added Eric.


“I do all my designs right in front of the client so I can gather feedback and so that the whole experience is transparent, easy and comfortable for the person I will be tattooing,” said Eric.


In addition to tattooing, Eric also does piercings and microblading. For new clients at Arlington’s newest tattoo shop, Eric is offering a 10% discount. The promotion will run until the end of June.
