CRUCIAL TATTOO STUDIO officially opened on Jan 1st, 2007, and are proud to have some of Maryland's best tattoo artists here with us, serving DelMarVa and surrounding areas, with clients from all over the country!
We are located in "Spring Hill Plaza" on business route 50 on the west side of Salisbury, Maryland. We are about 28 miles west of Ocean City Maryland, and about a two hour drive from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.
The former location and crew of Artistic Creations Tattoo Studio, first formed Crucial Tattoo Studio, along with some great newer additions to the staff, and select artists, with many different and unique art styles between them. Our award winning team of artists have a combined professional experience of over 35 years within the Tattoo Industry, and have established themselves in Salisbury, Maryland by consistently performing some of the best tattoos available! The growing number of our regular clients from well outside of our local area, shows this fact has not gone unnoticed, and we greatly appreciate all of our clients who are willing to travel from many states away for quality tattoos!

A big Thank You! goes out to all of our loyal clients and fans over the many years for your continued support!
