Welcome to The Pisst Fish Tattoo Company. We are located on 1270 Memorial Ave in West Springfield, MA, right across from the Main Gate of the Eastern States Exposition (the Big E). We at the Pisst Fish look forward to having you as a customer, and we hope you find any information you are looking for pertaining to your needs for either Tattoos and/or Piercings. We deal solely with Tattoos and Piercings only, so you know what exactly you are to expect when you walk through our door without the chaos and confusion of trendy boutiques, because to us, the quality of our work is what you came for, and that is where our focus is- to give you an outstanding, over-the-top, quality tattoo or piercing.
We have several racks of tattoo designs and numerous books of flash to choose from, but we strongly encourage you to use these designs as ideas only and to bring in your own reference photos/drawings/etc and have our professional artists custom design a tattoo.. A tattoo is something that is representative of yourself and there is no better way to express your individuality than with a one of a kind custom tattoo. Our staff has won awards for our custom tattoos- maybe you could be wearing the next award-winning tattoo!
All tattoos and piercings are performed with sterile, single-use, disposable needles which means that the needle that was used on you was never used on anyone else and will never be used on anyone else. Any inks left in caps get disposed of and never re-used. All of our tools (piercing and tattoo) are cleaned via ultrasonic cleaners and autoclave sterilized according to Health Department Sterilization standards. Our autoclaves are spore-tested monthly as required, to insure that our sterilization equipment is in top-notch working order for your safety. Not only do we comply with our local Health Departments expectations, but we do what we can to exceed as well. Our Health Department has actually referred clients to the Pisst Fish!
The members of the Pisst Fish are fully licensed with the West Springfield Board of Health, and follow all of the OSHA procedures of operation. All practitioners are licensed and current on CPR, First Aid, Bloodbourne Pathogens, and Anatomy & Physiology.
Our staff of nationally recognized, award-winning artists look forward to seeing you and answering any questions you may have. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (413) 733-7400 and we will do our best to answer your questions over the phone if possible.
We do appointments or walk-ins for tattoos and piercings, but appointments are recommended to ensure your spot. Appointments have priority over walk-ins. WE DO NOT SET UP APPOINTMENTS OVER THE PHONE. You must come in to set up an appointment for there is a monetary deposit required to insure that you will show up for your appointment ($50.00). We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Debit Cards and of course, good old Cash. Your deposit goes towards the final price of your tattoo. Also, we need to know how much time to set aside for your appointment, therefore a consultation is necessary and we cannot do this over the phone.
Piercing Prices vary according to the piercing and what jewelry you choose (please call for your piercing price!). Please come down and check out our very extensive selection. We can special order any type of jewelry that is available from several catalogs of various companies which we do business with, at no extra cost to you. We will do whatever it takes to find your special piece of jewelry. We're sure you will not leave disappointed.
