May News Letter
Greetings and salutations lovely 920 fam!
This month we've got a few important announcements. We are going to be taking a little vacation from Tuesday May 7th until Friday May 10th ,and then also Sunday May 12th. No one is going to be in the shop those days, but Molly is coming in on Saturday May 11th for Wine Walk, so you'll be able to stop by then to get some jewelry, or partake of the festivities. The first few weeks of May are a mad house here for the crew, with vacations, weddings and general self care time off; so we thank you for being patient and understanding during our little week off.
Speaking of Wine Walk, if you guys can make it on Saturday May 11th you should! It runs from 2 – 6pm with a whole host of small businesses taking part. Wine tickets are $26 and it's $6 for designated driver tickets. You'll need to purchase your tickets online at www.squareup.com/store/downtown-oshkosh. Tickets include a goodie bag with a map, a punch card for your wine samples, a chance to win prizes, and more! Not to mention you'll be able to hang out with Molly during our week off.
Next up is our student piercing of the month. This time around we are going for one of Molly's favorites, the conch! This piercing is easy to sit through, comfortable in the long term, and a nifty little place to store a few opal gems, or have a cool hoop. I've had mine for years and love it; the space is big enough to be versatile for different pieces of jewelry, and also tucked away enough that it doesn't get caught on things too easily. The fun doesn't start and stop with the piercing, this month we are giving $15 off instead of $10! That brings the total price down to $40 with jewelry and after care included.
Our coupon this month is extending part of our anniversary jewelry sale, particularly the part where we have select $7 plugs! Show the coupon and we'll show you the discounted treats we've still got after our amazing anniversary sale.
We'd like to extend another deep thank you to everyone who came and supported us during our sale, and those who support us the rest of the year with your cool tattoo projects and piercings. We said it before and we'll say it again, none of this would be possible without all of you, and we are eternally grateful!
From all of us here at 920 Tattoo Company we wish you a glorious May and hope to see you soon.
-Kelsey & the 920 Crew

April 2019 Newsletter
It's Tuesday, my dudes!
Welcome to the April newsletter everyone, and we're getting right into it. We have a new piercing of the month for all of you students (high school or college Ids accepted); we're offering $10 off nostril piercings! They take about 3 – 4 months to heal, and will have you kicking off this summer looking fresh. If you can't afford that rhinoplasty you've been dreaming of maybe a shiny new piercing will have the same effect? Noses big and small are welcome.
Just a fast reminder about our jewelry club, even though I've already talked your ear off about it in the last few newsletters. Y'all, it's pretty rad, and you can win great prizes just for getting the unique jewelry you're already buying. If you want more information, feel free to ask me or Molly while you're in the studio, or check out the back log of newsletters on our website for further details.
This month I was given a special mission, so I went under cover as special agent Betty Macklin to get some tea on our lovely and passionate piercer, Molly Moon. With my most reflective sunglasses donned, I got into a string of questioning; and let me say, the findings were more than I could have ever imagined. For example, she's been working at 920 Tattoo Company since June of 2015, and has been piercing since November of the same year. That's four years of providing the energetic service we've all come to expect and enjoy. Through my intense, but subtle, questioning I also discovered that she's been a vegetarian for 14 years. Molly prefers appointments over walk-ins, and enjoys piercing conchs the most. She likes long walks beside the lake under a full moon and running wild through the woods like, and I quote, “a banshee”. Perhaps the most important bit of information I gleaned was that she is, in fact, team Edward. Macklin, out.
Isn't Molly the best? Not only did she deal with my questions but she's also taken control of the coupon this month to give everyone, not just students, a good deal If you show us the attached coupon, you'll be getting $5 off any piercing. When she said anything, she meant it! Limit one per customer and it can't be added to the student deal, sorry kids; but hey, if you don't want to get your nostril done this month you can get a discount on something else.
I know we've been very enthusiastic about a particular jewelry order for a while, but I'm happy to announce that our Diablo Organics haul has arrived. All of the polls we took on Facebook, and talks we've had with customers in the studio, have finally bore fruit. We have all the pretties on display and are more than excited to talk to anyone who will listen about the stones and metal. So if you've got a few weddings to go to this spring like I do, and want a piece that'll class up any outfit, come take a look at the shiny brass and natural stone that we just got in. We were careful to get pieces that could work for people with stretched ears and those without, so you don't have to worry about finding your gauge; we have it.
Finally, from everyone here at the studio, we'd just like to thank you all for bringing your business to us and keeping our days busy with cool tattoo and piercing projects! Stay golden!

March 2019 Newsletter
This March we are doing a two week long raffle for a lovely pair of Diablo earnings, shown below! If you want to enter you have a few ways. The first is to find the corresponding Facebook post, comment on it and share it, and BAM your entered. If you happen to be in the studio and spend $25 on jewelry or a piercing you'll get entered! And last but most certainly not least, if you buy any Diablo Organics jewelry you'll get entered! Do all three and triple your chances of winning.
Also this month's coupon is for those of us with stretched ears. Bring in the attached 920 coupon (you can print it or just show it to us on your phone) and get a buy one, get one ½ off discount on plugs and tunnels! That includes our real stone Diablo Organics collection too.
While your here getting your name entered for that jewelry raffle and buying a few things for yourself, it would be a perfect time to join our jewelry club too! I mentioned it last time month, but just in case any of you are new here I'll spell out the goodies again. You get 1 point for every $10 you spend and the prizes are as follows:
10 pts = Free T-Shirt
20 pts = $10 off next jewelry purchase
30 pts = ½ off piercing
40 pts = $25 off next jewelry purchase
50 pts = Free Piercing
Just like last month we have a deal going on for students. For the entire month of March, bring in your student ID and you'll get $10 off a navel piercing. It'll be looking cute and sparkly just in time for summer trips to the lake or maybe that out door séance you've been putting off. Dance around the fire and let your bedazzled belly jewelry entice all who witness it, living or dead.
Are you looking for a new nose hoop? Are you scouring for a specific color gem topper? Are you hunting for a piece that literally only you would like and can't imagine a place that would have something so obscure and horrific in stock? Don't worry man, we got you. We make custom orders! Anything your little heart could desire can be yours and all you'll have to do is wait for it to be delivered. Do you need a rose gold septum clicker with blue opals? We can order it. Do you need nipple bars with other nipples as the beads? If we can find it we'll order it for you!
And to all of you a good night!
Take it easy

Feburary 2019 Newsletter
Greetings Fox Valley guys, gals and non-binary pals!
We hope everyone's New Year's resolutions are still going strong, here at 920 Tattoo Company we've been keeping up with our's by working on new projects for you all to enjoy! 2018 was one of our best years to date and we know that it's thanks to our client's dedication that we were able to surpass our goals. This year we hope to keep that train rolling, starting with some changes and hopefully some more opportunities to provide the Fox Valley with all their body modification needs.
Firstly, by the grace of Molly Moon and the ever vigilant Steve and Carrie, we've decided to bring monthly coupons to you fine people as part of our new changes. This month, if you print off the contained coupon or show it to us on your phone in studio, we'll be giving you a cool $10 off your jewelry purchase! This excludes our Diablo Organics collection, but the rest of the store is up for the discount.
Next we are updating some of our piercing prices as we move towards providing you with internally threaded, implant grade Titanium jewelry. This metal is top of the line and should help all our sensitive skinned friends out there heal to perfection. We'll be moving towards this change over the next several months and we will still be providing some medical grade surgical steel as options.
We are also revamping our jewelry and piercing club so that you get even cooler rewards! Instead of collecting punches to ten and getting your ten dollars off, we've opened the flood gates to even more prizes! The rules are pretty simple, every $10 you spend gets you a punch on your card, save them up and you'll get a bunch of options.
10 punches = 1 Free T-Shirt
20 punches = $10 off next jewelry purchase
30 punches = ½ off piercing
40 punches = $25 off next jewelry purchase
50 punches = 1 Free Piercing
But wait, theres more! For those of you who are students, working yourself to the bone for that degree, we are offering $10 off tragus piercings this month when you show us your valid school ID. If you don't know, a tragus is that tiny little nub right before your ear canal and it looks especially good with a sparkly opal post. Part of our New Years resolutions is to change what piercing we give a discount on each month, so if the tragus isn't your speed, wait till next month when it'll be something different or go full on Pokemon and catch them all!
Thats all from us here at 920 Tattoo Company, but it won't be the last. Keep an eye on your inbox for next month's newsletter and the specials that will be hidden inside it!
-Kelsey & the 920 Crew
I don't know how many of you have met me yet, but hi, I'm Kelsey. I've been working at the studio for about four months as an assistant to Steve, Carrie, and Molly. I will talk your ear off about video games or anime, so if you want to get out of the studio in a timely manner I'd suggest avoiding those topics near the front counter! Lets get to know me better with two truths and a lie; I have a cat named Church, I have a cat named Chapel and I have five cat tattoos. I've tricked you, they were all true! Have a nice day and I hope to meet you in person soon!
-Kelsey, again, okay bye
We've updated our piercing prices in the FAQ section of the website, so if you're wondering how much the piercing of your choice will cost, cruise on over there to find out. We'd also like to thank you for your patience and willingness to work with us. There are many tattoo studios in the valley to choose from, and we appreciate you choosing us. Carrie and Steve, the owners of the 920 Tattoo Company are currently the only full-time tattoo artists working at the studio. They are working on bringing in guests regularly, and will post this availability as it happens. Check Facebook for guest artist availability, or call the studio to make inquiries. To maintain the same level of quality and customer service our community has come to expect, the owners have decided to not employ additional artists on a permanent basis at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we will not sacrifice what has made the 920 Tattoo Company a name you can trust in Oshkosh.
Also, a friendly reminder for anyone holding a gift certificate. They expire one year from date of purchase. If your gift certificate is nearing its expiration date, you must book an appointment if you want to use it. As long as an appointment is booked, and deposits are left, we will honor your gift certificate, even if it expires before your scheduled appointment. BUT YOU MUST HAVE A SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT. No exceptions. You may use your gift certificate as a deposit on your upcoming scheduled tattoo, towards a piercing or the balance of a tattoo, or merchandise including body jewelry.
Thanks! And we hope everyone is having a happy new year.
-Steve, Owner, 920 Tattoo Co.
May Newsletter 2016
We are making a change to how we schedule larger pieces. Unfortunately, a few bad apples have forced us to require a larger deposit for multi-session tattoo work. From now on, for each appointment booked, you will be required to put $50 down for each session. For example, if your tattoo will require 1 appointment, you would need to put down a $50 deposit. If your design will require 4 sessions, you would be required to put down $200 (4 sessions @ $50/session = $200). If your design requires more than 4 sessions to complete, the maximum we will require for a deposit is $200. We spend as much time preparing for larger tattoos as we do actually tattooing them, and as a result, when folks end up not getting tattooed, we end up investing a lot of time we aren’t getting compensated for. As always, your deposit will go towards paying for your last tattoo session.
Also, it’s been brought to our attention that some of our prospective clients are uncomfortable with booking appointments months in advance, without getting to see their designs months in advance. We like to prepare for our upcoming tattoos close to the time when we will actually be tattooing them for a number of reasons. It ensures that the idea is fresh in our minds when we actually sit down to tattoo it, and have many other requests to fulfill before getting to the newest requests. We draw each request in the order it was received. For those whom would prefer to see something before their upcoming appointment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with the artist you will be working with. This can be done a maximum of 2 weeks prior to the scheduled tattoo appointment. During that consultation you will have the opportunity to see a sketch of your design, and review the specifics of your request. You will, however, not be allowed to leave the studio with any artwork at that time. We apologize for any inconvenience, however, we have to prevent prospective clients from taking our art and having it tattooed elsewhere, by other artists.
Molly is almost done with her piercing apprenticeship, and only has a few practice piercings left to finish her training. Please call the studio to take advantage of this opportunity, there are still a handful of $10 piercings available. Please call ahead to ensure there's space on your desired day, and to see which piercings are being offered for $10. All piercings are done under supervision, and include all aftercare products.
We greatly appreciate your continued support, and interest in our art. Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you!

January Newsletter 2016
First, thank you all for helping make 2015 our best year yet. Without all of your continuing support, it would not have been possible. We are working on making our service easier to use, and more convenient for everyone. We appreciate your patience, and willingness to work with us.
We are in the process of training a new body piercer, our current assistant Molly, and she is learning quickly. Soon, we hope you all will no longer need to make appointments, or return for piercing services due to Carrie’s schedule. We hope her training will be completed within the next few months. Also, we are constantly adding new body jewelry to our stock, and if you can’t find a color/size/style you’re looking for, we can also special order anything you’d like for no additional cost. We are also working on setting up a system to make mail order possible via the web for jewelry, so stay tuned.
As a reminder, Carrie and Steve are the only full-time tattoo artists at our studio, however, we have been hosting guest artists somewhat regularly to add availability and variety to our shop. Check our Facebook page to see any upcoming dates for our guests. At this time, we have no plans on adding a third full-time artist to the shop. This means the wait time for appointments may be weeks. Our suggestion is to book early if you have a specific date you would like to be tattooed on. We are working hard to get everyone who would like to be tattooed by us into the studio in a timely fashion, and again appreciate your patience. We want to keep the quality of your tattoo experience and art as high as we possibly can, and sometimes that means things take a little longer.
The last bit of business is a tougher one; after 4 years of operation, sad to say, everything costs more. From taxes to the cost of supplies, there really isn’t any cost of doing business that hasn’t increased. The result is that we’ve decided we need to raise our hourly rate from $100 per hour of tattoo time to $125 per hour. Compared to other tattoo studios in the area, we still feel this rate is fair and competitive. Our minimum of $50 for a half hour of tattooing is still valid. If you already have an appointment scheduled, and a price for your tattoo request quoted, we will honor any quotes we’ve already given. This change will apply to future appointments and requests.
We look forward to serving you in this upcoming year, and can’t wait to see what interesting and dynamic tattoo requests will come our way!
920 Tattoo Company
Shop changes Summer June 2015
Some changes have occurred here at 920 Tattoo, first of all, the lovely Sasha is no longer piercing with us so Steve and Carrie will be taking care of all of your piercing needs, since Carrie and Steve primarily tattoo, it would be best to call the shop and schedule an appointment, but we will still take walk-ins if their schedule permits. We also have tons of new body jewelry to choose from and if we don't have something in your size, we can custom order it just for you! We will also be getting a fresh supply of new summer tanks to choose from as well as hot new colors of our T-shirts and hoodies.
Secondly, My name is Molly, I am the new counter girl and I'm here to answer all of your burning questions! If you need to make an appointment, reschedule or cancel, please give me a call or shoot us an e-mail.
Since it is getting closer to swimming season, remember if you have a fresh tattoo for about two weeks NO POOL, LAKE, HOT TUB OR WATER PARKS!
Have a great Summer!!

Happy (belated) New Year! A very prosperous and positive new years to everyone, and we here at 920 Tattoo hope you all enjoyed your time with friends and family. As you all know, new year means new year resolutions, and if yours includes getting a new tattoo or piercing, we can help!
First bit of business, Peter has once again headed on to new pastures. We enjoyed having him here over the last 4 months, and wish him well on his future endeavors. If you have an unfinished tattoo by him, or would like to reach him for future work, drop us a line, and we will pass along his contact information.
If you are not aware, we are now offering body piercing at our studio. Sasha is working full-time, Tuesday through Sunday for all of your piercing needs. We are constantly getting new jewelery, so check back often for sales, and new pieces for all piercings. We can also special order anything you would like, so don't be afraid to ask if you don't see the piece that you're looking for.
We also will be offering time for walk in tattoos in February, on Friday or Saturday of each week. Call the studio (920-479-6144) to check for availability. Please make sure that if you're trying to get in on a walk in day that your design is simple, and smaller than your hand. If your design will take longer than 30 minutes to design, it would be more appropriate to make an appointment.
Thanks for all of your continuing support, and we look forward to seeing you again!
