After a two year journey, the sound of buzzing tattoo machines could be heard at King Street Studios, the first and only tattoo shop in Old Town Alexandria. The effort was coupled with Artbot Gallery, a popular, prosperous, and growing space dedicated to pop surrealism and low brow art, which launched in 2015.
Despite our efforts, the creative roots we’ve tended to have been cut short by unforeseen circumstances and the loss of our lease. The abrupt notice has left us with too little time to pursue a new location within city guidelines, and we have made the difficult decision to close our doors.
King Street Studios will continue to honor appointments made at 1314 King Street until April 30, 2017. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we transition our artists back to our main shop, Marlowe Ink, in Old Town Fairfax. Artbot Gallery will remain on site through April before launching an on-line presence in May.
We’ll be hosting an appreciation party Monday, April 24th , to personally thank our clients and business neighbors for their support and patronage. Event details will be posted shortly, and we welcome your attendance.
