February 14, 2017. Stillwater, MN. The Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce celebrated the grand re-opening of Good Times Tattoo Company in Oak Park Heights, and the new ownership of Tatts by Zapp in downtown Stillwater on February 14. Both businesses are shared by a family of talented artists. Owners, artists, clients, staff and Chamber Ambassadors attended the celebrations.

Good Times Tattoo initially opened in 2012 and moved to a larger space in late 2017 to accommodate their continued growth, and to better serve their clients. The space is a former dentist’s office which works well for privacy, offering a room for each tattoo artist and their client. As a custom shop, Good Times Tattoo artists are highly trained and creative, offering unique designs as well as piercings for their customers.

Tatts by Zapp is a well-known tattoo shop in downtown Stillwater. Established in 1996, the owner decided in 2017 that it was time to sell his business. He contacted Josh Strand from Good Times Tattoo Company, well aware of the fact that Josh is a great artist, and also a strong, well established business owner in the community.  Good Times Tattoo decided to move forward and took over Tatts in January. They have already updated the space with a new floor plan, paint, lighting and fresh new staff. For any previous Tatts by Zapp customers who are unhappy with their tattoo, they will fix it until October 2018.

“We are very happy with the new space for Good Times, and Tatts needed a major makeover which we have just done! Both shops offer tattoos, Tatts is more of a traditional, iconic tattoo parlor. Perfect for our historic town. Good Times focuses on custom work and more extensive tattoos as well as piercing. We are fanatical about cleanliness and very focused on customer service, and our shops are based on solid artwork and hardworking artists. We want every customer to be excited about their tattoo, show their friends, and spread the word!” stated owner, Joshua Strand.
