Succeeding in this business means much more than beautiful artwork, innovative piercing or an eclectic selection of jewelry. It means more than having the best tattoo artists and piercers. And it goes beyond having an incredible space that draws people in and keeps them coming back.
What we’re offering is much more personal than that. We want you to feel at home in our studio. In order to ensure that you are comfortable and confident in your decisions along the way, we work collaboratively to ensure that the artwork or piercing is representative of you and your vision for your body. We want you to leave here feeling more complete than when you walked in. We work passionately to uphold this standard.
Visions is a full-service tattoo and piercing studio in an art gallery setting, housing incredible, visionary artists and piercers under one vintage Victorian roof. We believe in working together with clients to create innovative and one of a kind pieces, ensuring that everyone who walks in the door is provided with an experience unrivaled in this industry.
Safety and professionalism are our number one priority from the moment you walk into our studio. Each Visions artist is licensed with the Medway Health Department and certified in CPR, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens. All of our piercers are current members of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) and Canman is a member of the National Tattoo Association (NTA).
At Visions, we take pride in our high standards of aseptic techniques and work closely with the Medway Health Department, ensuring that our procedures are in compliance with the most up to date guidelines.
We provide new needles for every client and ensure the safety of our customers and staff by following stringent protocols to avoid cross contamination. Our artists use single use disposable ink holders, tubes, and razors, along with barriers on everything that is touched during the tattoo process. All piercing supplies and needles are autoclaved, single use and disposed of immediately following the piercing procedure. All tools are disinfected, run through an ultrasonic, individually packaged and finally run through the autoclave.
We also have a Statim 2000 G4, which is a high-speed cassette autoclave, allowing our piercers to sterilize any equipment and jewelry right before each client being pierced! Our clients can feel confident each piercing performed is with sterile implements. After each sterilization cycle and prior to the piercing, our piercers will show the client their own pre-initialed sterilization integrator strip. This provides evidence that all implements and jewelry have been properly sterilized. In addition, all of our autoclaves are spore tested weekly instead of the monthly recommendation to ensure all of our equipment is operating at optimal performance!
Canman especially enjoys collaborating with his clients to design creative and long lasting custom tattoos. He is attracted to most art and tattoo styles, but is particularly inspired by larger projects involving flowing compositions in a variety of colors done with an illustrative approach.
Angela started her piercing career after serving an apprenticeship with Michelle Myers in 2001 in Florida. Since then, she is honored to collaborate with her colleagues which has helped to hone her skills as a professional body piercer.
Born in 1985 and raised in Bellingham, Massachusetts, Ariel has always had the artistic family gene. She likes all styles of tattooing, but undeniably gravitates towards bright bold colors. As a self taught artist, she’s always eager to learn more, and after almost three years tattooing, Ariel can’t imagine her life any other way.

I strive to continuously learn and not plateau. To provide nothing but the best for each client I work with. It’s truly an honor to be back into this industry that has given me so much!
