Red Sky Studio
561 North 4th Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85705
Red Sky Studio, located on 4th Avenue across from Sky Bar, looks like a really nice art gallery from the outside. The building has two glass doors and when you look inside, you see a bunch of oil paintings and sketches on their walls. But Red Sky Studio is also a tattoo shop.
Red Sky Studio does full custom tattoo designs and piercings. The artists that work there are really good and many people have highly recommended Philip Felix, who is also the owner of the studio.
The prices vary of course; it really depends on what you want and how big you want it. The smallest tattoos start at $50 and they sometimes have a drawing deposit. The cool thing about Red Sky Studio is that they allow you work participate with the artist on your drawing. To me, that’s really an important step since tattoos are on you forever.
Like I’ve mentioned before, the studio itself looks like an art gallery. When you walk inside there is concrete floors, ambient lighting and some pieces of colored tile. There is even a cool t-rex sculpture in the center of their studio!
Red Sky Studio is normally closed on Sundays and Mondays but they open Tuesday-Saturday from 1pm to 9pm. They can sometimes do walk-ins but it’s best to pop in, show them what you want and set something up.
I would say that their prices are fair, especially for the time, effort and patience they work in. Honestly, you get what you pay for when it comes to tattoos. If you want something really good on your body, it’s best to pay a little bit more than be cheap about it. So, if you’re looking for a place to get a cool tattoo, pop in to Red Sky Studio and see what they can do!
