Irezumi Tattoo started as Irezumi Body Art on the southern edge of the historic Waldo district in Kansas City, Mo. After nearly 17 years it was time for a change. Not wanting to leave the south KC area we found a perfect space in the heart of Waldo at 7406 Wornall road in late 2013. A former funeral home none the less. We officially opened as Irezumi Tattoo in February of 2014. Come by and see the new haunted location.
At Irezumi we have many talented artists that are experienced in a variety of tattoo styles, including but not limited to portrait, traditional American, black and gray, color, realism, Japanese, cover-ups, bio-mechanical, water color, custom script/lettering and more.
