Hello! If you've been in recently, you may already know the exciting news, because I've not been able to be quiet about it: I'm relocating to Eugene! After 9 YEARS at Memento Ink, my last day will be this Friday the 31st. This move will open doors to help me achieve the goals I've been working towards for years! This change is daunting, but so worth it. I'm over the moon!
Folks can still book appointments with the same link. After Friday the 31st, I will be at my new location. See you there!
https://square.site/book/32SQM7APWM4BY/octopie-piercing-springfield-or Hi everyone! David here one last time!
Im leaving the Memento family to start a new chapter in my tattoo life. Saturday was my last day at the shop so you may come in to find my station missing! Ive been offered an amazing opportunity to work with some amazing new people. Its time to set off on a new adventure!
I want to take a moment to thank April and Norm for almost 7 years of an amazing friendship at an amazing shop! To all my clients over the years I want to thank you for your support, and a lot of awesome conversations, its been an honor to hear about your lives, the ups and downs, and to be a part of them.
If you have any work that I still need to finish and you havent heard from me, or you just want to say hi,I will be just across town at Sub-Dermal Art Collective.
I Urge you all to continue to support April and everyone at Memento, and Hope to see everyone I dont work on when I stop into visit April from time to time! These people have been amazing to me, and deserve your support!
Its going to be super strange to look over and not see Ape tattooing across for me, But dont worry folks! Im going to take over her pool all summer! I love all you guys,......did i say AMAZING enough times? hahahahaha!

https://square.site/book/32SQM7APWM4BY/octopie-piercing-springfield-or We are excited to announce that we will be reopening, however, we will not be accepting walk in clients at this time. If you are not already on the contact list and would like to be, you can message us on Facebook, email or call. If you call, please leave your name and number and we will return your call for scheduling! You will be contacted prior to your appointment for confirmation. Can’t wait to see you all![05/08/20] Well friends, it looks like we *MAY* be able to reopen as soon as May 15th! We are very excited and will be contacting everyone who is on the scheduling list as soon as we have confirmation of that date. If you are not already on that list and would like to be, let us know via comment or direct message. People who were previously scheduled will be contacted first. We can’t wait to see everyone and have missed you all very much! We will be taking additional safety precautions when we reopen, some of which include: We will be taking clients BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Clients will be asked to come alone to their appointment. We will be requiring clients and staff to wear masks. You may be asked to wait outside until previous client has left. We will be updating you on these procedures as you are contacted for scheduling. THANK YOU ALL FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT YOU HAVE SHOWN US! Memento Ink - Tattoos by April's cover photo Memento Ink - Tattoos by April's cover photo Explaining Exquisite Corpse, the Surrealist Drawing Game That Just Won’t Die Who wants to play Distance Exquisite Corpse with me? Leave a comment, and I’ll assign you a section to draw. Then send your drawing to me in messenger (so no one else sees it) and I’ll put them together into the full art work. Doesn’t this sound like fun? Here’s a link to my inspiration: artsy.net The rules of this collaborative art exercise are simple: Grab some friends and a single piece of paper, and create something beyond your wildest dreams. STAY HOME. STAY SAFE. We will be closed temporarily, but look forward to serving you all soon! If you have an appointment during this closure, we will be contacting you to reschedule as soon as we are back to work. If you would like to get on the schedule when we return, you can message us here or email [email protected] to get on the call list! In the meantime, we will be offering gift certificates online as well as up for grabs designs and other original art prints and merchandise. We will post those links in the comments here.

Q. What and where was your first job? A. My first job was bussing tables at The Village Inn...right here in Springfield! I really enjoyed getting to know our regulars and making connections.
Q. When did you open your business? A. We opened up in June of 2011, so coming up on 9 years!
Q. What brought you to open a business in Downtown Springfield? A. I love Springfield and had been watching all of the growth happen down here. I wanted to open a business where I really wanted to work and make it inclusive and welcoming for all walks of life. Downtown really hit all of those marks.
Q. What is something you would like people to know about your business? A. We are not just tattoos! We also have extremely talented hair dressers and makeup artists (who work closely with the Eugene Ballet) as well as a nail technician and piercing artist. We are deeply involved in Downtown Springfield Second Friday Art Walk and we also do a lot of work with the education community. We work with local high schools (including A3 and Gateway) to host at least two internships annually so that those interested in the artistry or even the business aspect of our daily jobs can get a real experience.
Q. What is one other business located in Downtown Springfield that you would recommend people check out? A. Oh goodness...ALL OF THEM! (we agree)....but some standouts are Memo's Mexican Restaurant, Chow and PublicHousehub. Another wonderful business is the The Nautilus Tropical Fish. Aaron has been extremely helpful in our aquarium needs but he also has gone above and beyond in assisting with tattoos and sleeves to be sure we choose the correct aquatic features and fish that would truly be found in the same environment. These are some up for grabs designs im really into doing at the moment, special offers(usually around half price) ,first come first serve, I will not hold a design, or book an appointment until it has been purchased! theres also a ton on the wall, if your bored come say hi!-UP FOR GRABS! - David David Up for Grabbies!
