Why Allegory?


When Pete Walker originally came up with the idea for Allegory he  wanted to create an environment that challenged the notions of one of the world's oldest practices. Tattooing is a very personal experience and we here at Allegory understand how important it is to have the perfect design which really expresses the clients vision. 


"Our tattoos are the legacy we leave our future selves. Tattoos end up becoming the milestones along the path of our lives, you will never stop changing as a person, and will never forget who you were when you got a particular tattoo." 


At Allegory we are all pretty much nerds, we understand having passions and ours range from Music, to Video Games, to Epic Fantasy, and beyond. The one pursuit we all share is Art. So we can relate to having passions and want to help you find a way to make your passions permanent. Whether it be Family, Achievemnts or just Art collection, we can help you create the perfect image custom designed to fit your body.


We are sure that if you swing by and check out our shop, you will find it comfortable, relaxed and fun. We here at Allegory aren't Thugs or Tough guys, we are artists.
