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

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

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.



So you’re stuck with a dark tattoo. You want to get it covered but your options are limited. In most cases, your choices are bigger and darker. Well, what about lightening the piece first? Below is a great example. With just 3 laser treatments, Caleb was able to cover his old tattoo with no sign of underlying tattoo. (Click the image for close-up view…you will see NO TRACE of the old kanji!)


“His neck tattooed normally.
I didn’t notice any adverse effects from the laser treatment at all.
You do good work.”
