Hello Everyone, So in anticipation for tomorrow’s small fundraiser we’ve had a lot of people call and message us with questions. I figured we would do one big reply here and go over all of the info.
First, we set aside a 3 hour block of time. We really weren’t sure how well this would go, so it’s possible that 3 people will show up and we will sit around, or its equally possible that 100 people will show up and we won’t be able to help them all. That being said, we are trying to set this up so that we can help as many people as possible and keep things moving quickly. To do that, we need all of our participants to know what’s happening and follow the rules.
If, by for some chance, you can’t wait or you aren’t able to get tattooed, we can certainly take appointments for a later date. (pricing will depend on design or piercing.) We have time for tattoos on September 3rd from 12pm to 3pm and we WILL book appointments for that time instead of walk ins. If that won’t work, you’re welcome to get on our waiting list for other dates.
If you or someone you know is not 18, or doesn’t want a piercing or a tattoo, thats ok too. You’e welcome to donate money, and you’re welcome to purchase a semicolon necklace.
Necklaces $15 ($5 of that goes toward ASPF)
Tattoos $60 for any design ($20 toward ASPF)
Semicolon Double Piercing $60 for both, including jewelry ($20 toward ASPF)
- You NEED an ID. Passport, license, nondriver state ID or Military ID. If you are under 18 and want a piercing you need an ID or birth certificate, and you also need a parent with an ID.
- Sign up on the list. Only YOU can sign yourself up. No holding places for people who aren’t here. We have a limited number of spaces and it’s first come, first serve.
- If you’re getting a tattoo, you must pick one of the designs we have, at the size we have. If you want a different size or a different design, you’ll have to book an appointment at a later time.
- For tattoos, No hands, feet, necks, heads. If you would like a different location, please book an appointment for a later date.
- For piercings, you may only get one loop one stud in the semicolon shape. You can choose if you want it on your earlobe or your cartilage on your right or left ear.
I will have all the designs and sizes posted at the shop, or you can check below for the basic idea. Don’t forget that this is a fundraiser, we’re here to have fun and support each other. Excited to see everyone and have a fun night! Thanks

We are doing the Live Free Or Die Expo again this year. As promised, here is the info.
Every year, we do something special for those of you who enter and win a place for a tattoo that James or I have done. This year we are going to spoil the crap out of you. PLEASE look below for more info, but we are giving away some prizes. If you enter a contest, we will give you a $25 gift certificate toward a tattoo. If you win a 1st place prize, we will give you a $100 gift certificate for Grim North. If you win 2nd place we will give you $50 gift certificate for Grim North.
You ARE allowed to enter and win multiple times. All the contest rules are on the website.
Specific contests fall on different days, so you need to check and see what category your tattoo falls into and go to the convention on the correct day. Look below for the schedule.
This year it will be at the Radisson Hotel, 700 Elm st. Manchester NH. July 24, 25 and 26. Fri: 5pm-12am Sat:10am-12am and Sun:10am-6pm
You can buy online tickets here
expo is pretty much a huge room with a ton of different shops and tattooers all set up in individual booths. Each shop does its own thing, some accepting credit card, some only cash, some piercing, some selling shirts or artwork and all of them tattooing. Different booths will have different rules about appointments. Some people come for a single afternoon or night and lots of people rent a hotel room so that they can enjoy a couple days and not drive after the parties.
We usually try to book appointments for friday and part of sunday. If you want a very large tattoo that can be entered for tattoo of the day, we will be willing to book on saturday, but otherwise we often try to leave a good chunk of saturday open for walk ins. We bring a bunch of fun designs to choose from for that time. ( we usually start posting those designs on Stina
in the weeks beforehand.) There are also a lot of live performances by bands and performers during the expo, along with lots of booths of books, clothes and art. Theres food and drinks inside too. After the convention, at night, there are usually afterparties as well.
There are tattoo contests on each of the days. We personally provide a gift certificate prize to anyone that has a tattoo from our shop that wins a contest and the convention itself gives out plaques and for tattoo of the day a cash prize. If you win a 1st place prize, we will give you a $100 gift certificate for Grim North. If you win 2nd place we will give you $50 gift certificate for Grim North.
Usually you sign up and at the allotted time they call your number up and you go onto the stage where a few people look at your tattoo, and write down notes. Then you hang out and at the end of the night they give out awards for the winners of the contests. You do not have to be there for the awards and if you win, we will get your award for you :)
You’ll have to read the contests and the contest Rules page to decide which category your tattoo fits into. (they don’t have the specific days each contest is on yet, or the times the contests start yet.) HERE
There is also a pin-up contest
which the theme is the 20’s (or flappers) on Saturday at 7:30
I will probably be reposting this stuff online again later when they put up the actual dates and times of contests.
Thank you and hope to see you there :)
Happy 4th of July everyone!
We are closed Saturday July 4th to observe the holiday.
Lets be honest, you were all gonna come in for tattoos with a sunburn, drunk, or the day before your weeklong swimming/lake vacation. Or if you wanted a piercing, you are on vacation, probably under 18, don’t have an ID and your parents left your birth certificate at home anyway. So instead of saying no to everyone, we took the day off to be with our families. Haha
Our normal business hours are Tuesday-Friday 11am-7pm and Saturday 11am-8pm with our piercer coming in later at 3:30 on Thursdays.
We will be closed 4th of July then our normal sun-Monday and then also Tuesday July 7th. We will be back on Wednesday July 8th. don’t get sunburned this weekend, because then you can’t get a tattoo! Thanks and happy holiday!
Hello everyone! We are really excited to announce our new shirt design. This year we are going ALL OUT. We decided to make this design a little more special, in that it has a LOT of color. We have these printed by a high end print shop who does amazing work and on quality pieces of clothing.
The real special is that we also have hoodie sweatshirts listed. Sweatshirts of high quality with this many colors are pretty expensive to make so we ONLY do them as pre-orders and we charge our cost. We do not make a single cent on these. You can only get them if you pre-order them. We don’t order extras.
Everything will be up on our website for sale as a pre-order for a couple of weeks or so. We are going to try or have these ordered around the end of the month so that we can have them shipped out and at your house by early to mid-July.
