Liquid Courage was founded in 2000 by Devin and Johnna. While working together in a South Omaha street shop for several years, they noticed that many of their clients were requesting totally original, hand-drawn tattoos instead of simply picking designs off the wall. When they set out to open their own studio, they made this type of tattooing a priority, and opened the first (and to this day, only) all-custom tattoo studio in Omaha. We now have nearly a dozen full time artists, three piercers, our own building, and a small army of loyal clients.
Our goal is to provide an excellent customer experience from start to finish. We pride ourselves on working with each individual client in a collaborative way. Drawing upon our years of experience in tattooing, we will listen you your ideas, and help shape them in an effort to build you the best, most durable tattoo possible. We believe that we have an artist suited to do any kind of tattoo imaginable, and we will insist on putting your vision in the proper hands. Above all, we believe that everyone walking in our doors deserves to be treated with respect, and everyone walking out deserves to have a great tattoo.
Hours of Operation
Monday - Saturday : Noon - 8PM / Sunday - Closed
A Custom tattoo shop is/was a new concept in our area when we began. The principle is simple. We at Liquid Courage started getting tattooed years ago to do something original and to display our individual interests and personalities. That is the concept with which we built Omaha’s first TOTALLY custom tattoo shop. We strive to give everyone a tattoo that is original and well-done on every level. One of the best things about a truly custom shop is- you can bring to the table as much or as little as you’d like.If you bring in your ideas or designs we can make it into a tattoo that will truly be yours. These ideas all require a bit more work on our part and yours as well. Being strictly custom means we hand draw ALL of your designs individually and therefore requires an appointment. So please stop into our shop and speak with any of our capable artists, ALL are willing to help.
A: At Liquid Courage the short answer is, yes. Being an ALL custom shop means that we need to spend more time working on your individual tattoo design. This requires more commitment from our artists as well as from our customers! We would like to spend time talking to you about your design before we even set up your tattoo session. There almost always will be a drawing appointment for you to see a sketch before you even get tattooed. ****** for those of you who are a bit more impulsive, or would like to get tattooed today, we have created the shop for you! Sailor’s Grave Tattoo in Old Town Benson. Owned and operated solely by Liquid Courage tattoo artists who rotate in & out of this location on 2 week intervals.
A: We at Liquid Courage would love to tattoo everyone who would like to get tattooed by us! We therefore have opened a strictly first come, first served, tattoo street shop! no appointment is ever necessary at this location! Operated solely by Liquid Courage tattoo artists. guaranteeing you the same quality and cleanliness you would expect at our main shop. All of our talented tattooers work at Sailor’s Grave as well on a 2 week rotation. Please check http://sailorsgraveomaha.com for artist availability.
A: Sorry, we do not. again, as is the theme throughout these questions, we require a little bit more commitment from both our customers and our artists. The only truly great way to give a honest price quote and time quote is in person. So many factors go into determining the cost of your tattoo that we want to meet with you individually and make sure we have the specifics clear. ( if you are from out of town, email one of us and we will work out arrangement ). It is also important to note that we do require a cash deposit for each appointment. Sorry, no cards.
A: Many hours of thought and work go into each Liquid Courage tattoo design. Most deposits are only 60$. And payable in cash only. Sorry, no cards. This deposit comes off the final cost of your tattoo. The only way you lose your deposit is a “no call, no show”. In the case of a “no call, no show” the artists recoup the deposit as partial payment for their time spent. **** 24 hours notice for any cancellations is considered a true courtesy to our staff. We have many clients would love to fill your session but they do need some notice as well.
A: We understand that life happens. You can cancel at anytime prior to your tattoo appointment and not lose your cash deposit. Acceptable ways to cancel or reschedule your appointment are: in person or on the phone ONLY. We will not accept any cancellation/reschedule notice via email or social networking of any kind.
A: any tattoo that can be completed in one visit to the tattoo shop will be given 1 flat price at the time of your consultation by one of our artists or shop manager. Any tattoos that will take multiple sessions, we will quote by number of sessions (close estimate)…. 3 hour sessions range between 250$-400$ depending on artist. Accurate price quotes will only be given in person.
A: This is EASY. TATTOOS = 18+. BODY PIERCING = 15+ ( with parental consent & proper state issued, photo ID for every piercing EXCEPT genital and single point piercings, A.K.A. dermal anchors, which are 18+ ). More questions? Please call the studio. 402-929-4968
1. Wash your tattoo after 1-2 hours with HOT water and soap.
2. Let the HOT water run over your tattoo for 5-10 min.(expanding the skin) DO NOT BURN YOURSELF.
3. Pat Dry.
4. Apply an ice pack to the newly tattooed area for 20 min. (contracting the skin and sealing in the newly colored goodness) Also, DO NOT APPLY ICE PACK DIRECTLY TO YOUR SKIN. IT TOO WILL BURN YOUR SKIN, SMARTGUY. Wrap it in a towel or cloth.
5. Pat Dry.
6. Leave the tattoo alone for 24hrs.
7. Apply skin lotion or Aquaphor as recommended 2-3 times a day. What ever skin lotion you prefer is fine. (perfumed lotion contains alcohol and will sting a bit) 8. Continue using lotion on your tattoo forever and ever.
A: Yup. But you’ll live. We did.
