So, as most of us know, there are a bunch of tattoo shops located in the city of Omaha (approximately 30-40), however there is a hidden little gem known as Quality Ink Tattoo located just across the street from Bellevue’s own Offutt Air Force Base.
It is one of the two tattoo shops located in Nebraska’s oldest city. And city sanctions do not allow for the cities of Papillion or LaVista to have any tattoo shops. Which actually works out well for the artists at Quality Ink as they are often the shop chosen by those in the Military and by others who live in Sarpy County.
Quality Ink Tattoo is owned by Leon Alderette, who is an amazing tattoo artist with over 18 years of experience. To go along with his immaculate tattooing abilities, he is also the one who does all body piercings for the shop. Leon has won numerous awards and has been featured in several magazines such as PAIN and INK.
Charles Elmore is the lead artist for Quality Ink. With only 3 years of professional experience and being self taught, Charlie is a force to be reckoned with. His passion for tattooing started off at home after he purchased a tattooing kit and practicing on friends before he ventured out to a professional arena. His line drawings are excellent but water color is truly his favorite.
Taylor Heller is the newest member of the Quality Ink family and is fitting in wonderfully. He has always had a love for art since childhood and graffiti was sort of an outlet as he was growing up. Taylor is known to specialize in black and grey realism but is an all around fantastic artist.
Shop manager Dan Corliss is the smiling face that greats you as you walk in the door. Referred to as a big teddy bear, Dan will do a wonderful job at helping with tattoo ideas and placement, all while cracking jokes. His sense of humor and knowledge of tattoos will surely put you at ease.
If you are considering a tattoo or piercing, give Dan a call at 402-292-2406 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information on the shop along with photos of previous work can be found on their website www.qualityinktattoo.com
