Eternal Etchings Tattoo 1705 Bayshore Rd Villas NJ (609) 886-6488

Eternal Etchings is an award winning, family run, all female studio, with lots of bright, and friendly atmosphere, that sets it apart from most of the local tattoo establishments.

Megan Murphy is the primary artist at Eternal. She has her Bachelors Degree of Fine Art in Illustration, from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She started her tattooing career in Baltimore at Gypsy's Tattoo Studio where she worked for five years. Twelve years ago with the help of her parents she started Eternal Etchings and has now been tattooing for the last 17 years.

Shannon Murphy is the studio's second artist. She Has been tattooing for 3 years now after an apprenticeship from her sister Megan. She enjoys doing bright color work, as well as Black and Gray. The crazier the design the better.

Ashlee Ammann is the studio body piercer, and tattoo apprentice. She also does our temporary tattoos, and smile gems. She uses all top grade jewelry from Industrial Strength. And as with all our services, body piercings are done with single use sterile needles, and jewelry. Minors done with parents permission.

The temp tats are great for all ages. Now these are not just the kind you stick on with some water and paper. They are done with a high quality theatrical paint. Same stuff used to create those great tats you see on all your favorite Hollywood stars in the movies. We also do the Smile Gems. They are great if you want to rock some cool 'bling' in a not so conventional way.

Eternal Etchings uses only single use, autoclave, sterile needles and equipment. All NJ and local Health Department standards are strictly complied with. Megan and Shannon are members of the Alliance of Professional Tattooists and have passed the Blood Borne Pathogens Exam. Our piercer Ashlee has also taken her Blood borne pathogens exam,and complies with all New Jersey health codes.

There is a wide variety of "flash" (commercially prepared tattoo designs) to choose from. You are also more than welcome to bring in your own images,and ideas, the ladies will gladly give a quote for custom work. We do offer tattoos for minors 16-17 with parents permission. Custom and Cover up tattoos are Megan's specialties. Most standard flash designs start at $60-$100, depending on size, colors, and complexity. Megan is now an award winning artist, who's most public claim to fame is the tattoo of a dragon on the neck of (Mr. "Thong Song") Sisqo, formerly of Dru Hill and painting Charlie Sheen's jacket in the major motion picture "Major League II".
