The holidays are upon us. We have original and flash designs available. We also offer full service piercing by Olivia. Stop in to set appointments or check out our Instagram @gem_city_tattoo_club @chumdad1 @ogbrentleejames @alexcoopertattoos @j.gonzalez.tattoos @mistydawntattoos @_babyolive

Covid is still out there. We do not require masks. But do ask if anyone is feeling off kilter to please stop in another day.

Currently the city of Dayton has enacted a mask mandate. We encourage folks to mask up.

We have tons of flash for walk in tattoos. Or you can stop in with your idea or art and we can set an appointment.

I have gone to this location for 7 of my 10 tattoos, 5 of them with Jim, and 2 of them with Brentlee. And every experience here is a pleasure. It’s a friendly, welcoming environment for people of all walks of life, they are quick, sanitary, precise, and professional. All their work is done beautifully, and they always have great prices for their work. No matter what your art style of preference is, Gem City has an artist for you. Best tattoo club in Dayton, and I’d say in Ohio in general. I will always be a repeat customer here as long as I have skin with blank space to fill in. Remember, tip your artists and piercers!

Olivia was amazing! I had her do several different piercings for me and I was well informed and felt very comfortable and relaxed about each experience. I will be back for more soon!

I have went to Olivia for multiple piercings. She is precise and takes her time to make sure it's right. Everything is clean and professional. If you have any questions she is very knowledgeable and I have never left disappointed. Definitely recommend Gem City and their wonderful staff!
