Here at Anchors Aweigh Tattoo Company we want you to have the best tattoo experience as you possibly can.  
You will have a good time and not be pressured into doing anything you aren’t comfortable with.  We don’t have
any flash on the walls for you to peruse through because when we opened up we said that as tattoo artist, we
should be able to draw.  If you happen to want something that we aren’t comfortable doing we will let you know,
but there’s not much we can’t do.

While here, you can enjoy getting work done in our spacious rooms and not have to feel like you’re crammed into a
closet.  We try to make the experience as personal as possible so when it’s your appointment time, it’s all about
you!  We’re very family oriented and your
well behaved children are welcome.

We will not tattoo or pierce you if you are drunk, high, stupid, an asshole or underage.  Be respectful, we’re doing
permanent things to you.  Also, everything we do here hurts, it’s part of the game.  You must be at least 18 years
old and have a government issued photo ID to receive a tattoo and no, your parents can’t sign for you.  As far as
piercings go, for anyone under the age of 18, you need a parent or legal guardian present to sign for you and they
need to have a government issued photo ID.  We do not pierce anyone under the age of 14.  For any ear piercing
the age is 16 and up with a government issued photo ID.  

We’re conveniently located right across from The Clubhouse Restaurant 3 doors down from Farm Bureau
Insurance here at 40/42 (intersection of Hwy-42 & I-40) in the Johnston County part of Garner (Cleveland) which is
exit 312 off of I-40.  If you’re coming from Raleigh on I-40, take exit 312 and turn right, if you’re coming from
Wilmington on I-40, take exit 312 and turn left.  Look for the Food Lion on your right and we’re right behind it.
