My name is Jim Kelly and I am the manager of the Blackwood Empire Tattoo in Clementon, New Jersey. I have been at the shop since we opened in 2008. I also pierce full time at the shop and have been doing so since 2009.

When we found out we would be expanding to a new location in Somers Point I took on Paul as my apprentice and taught him to pierce as well as how to maintain the shop.

I did the same with our current piercer beside myself in Clementon Gary, but trust me both are just as good and qualified to pierce and help you in the shop as I am.

I can help you with any questions you may have in the shop about piercings or tattoos, whether it be just a price quote, help finding reference , or anything else that could come up in the shop.

I am available every day of the week beside Sunday and Wednesday.
