Our Mission

We aim to create an elite art and tattoo studio with an emphasis on quality work and superior service. We pride ourselves on our one of a kind studio atmosphere, talented artists, and professional work. Our goal is to raise the bar within the tattoo and piercing industry as well as detach the stigma society commonly associates with these artforms. We will continuously push ourselves to bring only the best to our customers worldwide!

Our Story

The Hornet’s Nest is the product of tons of hard work and lots of big dreams. Thanks to a great guy named Keith who realized our potential, preparations for the HN began mid 2010. Opened in December 2010, the HN was built from scratch in a spot that sat empty for nearly ten years. Our rather small space boasts a big presence. One month after opening, the HN was voted #1 Best Tattoo and Piercing Studio in WHAS’ Annual “Best Of” awards. From there, things have only gone uphill!

We opened with a crew of eight and quickly added another four just to keep up with business. While we are open seven days a week, we make time to travel to as many conventions and events as possible. We offer a full range of tattooing and piercing services as well as our clothing line and a huge selection of jewelry. We are constantly striving to be the best and anticipate keeping you happy for many years to come! We couldn’t do it without you, our fans!!
