Pop-Up Tattoo Artist Gallery

Fade Fast Dallas is hosting a pop-up tattoo artist gallery April 1-3, 2016 to showcase work from local tattoo artists.

Facebook Cover DEAF2

With the 22nd annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival at our front door, we thought this weekend would be a perfect opportunity to spotlight local artistic talent in the Deep Ellum area.

Fade Fast was founded on the idea that there are people out there who seek tattoo removal and don’t necessarily hate tattoos, but are unhappy with what they currently have. We have very strong ties to local tattoo shops because of this. Most people don’t realize that tattooist’s artistic abilities go well beyond the canvas of skin. Our gallery in a sense is our way of showing support and giving back to the tattoo community.

Artists Showing:
Caleb Barnard – Electric Eye Tattoo
Ejay Bernal – Saints and Sinners Tattoo
Dru Bias – Allegiance Tattoo
Casey Cokrlic – Fine Line Tattoo
Scott Cooksey – Lone Star Tattoo
Silvia De Aztlan – Aztlan Tattoo
Andy Felty – Suffer City Tattoo
Gilbert Gonzalez – Suffer City Tattoo
G.w. Garner – Fine Line Tattoo
Mike Hamill Jr – Legacy Arts Tattoo

Sorry Mom: Getting Lots Of Tattoos Could Have A Surprising Health Benefit

A new study suggests that having multiple tattoos might mean you have a better-than-average immune system.  The next time Grandma criticizes your multiple tattoos, tell her they might just be a sign that you’re healthy.

A new study published in the American Journal of Human Biology last week — and getting lots of ink since then — suggests that people with multiple tattoos have a better immune response to new tattoos than people who are getting tattooed for the first time.

More Than Just Removal

Here at Fade Fast our business often goes beyond tattoo removal. From day-one our goal has been to help people that are unhappy with their tattoos. Sometimes that requires total removal. Other times we simply lighten tattoos to be covered with better artwork. There are even clients that don’t need our services. For people that just need their tattoos fixed, we are always happy to provide advice and referrals.


More Information

To contact the featured artist please visit his website. If you would like more information about lightening your tattoo to be covered or to find referrals for tattoo artists in the DFW area, please visit: http://fadefast.com/tattoo/

If you are local tattoo artist and would like your art featured here at Fade Fast please send us an email or stop by anytime to show us your work.

Hush Gel – Topical Anesthetic

After months of testing several different topical anesthetic products, Fade Fast Dallas is happy to announce that we now carry Hush Anesthetic Gel (coming soon to our Arkansas location).

HushGelFor more information on the product please visit – http://hushgel.com/faq/

Because the anesthetic takes an hour for full effect, our Dallas location offers two choices:

  1. Hush Gel can be purchased and applied in advance so our clients can relax in the comfort of their own home prior to treatment.
  2. Let us apply the anesthetic then relax in a recliner, in our private waiting room.  The room features a large television available for your entertainment or feel free to bring your own device and plug into one of the USB power ports available for your convenience.
