About ASG INK 
ASG INK is locally owned & operated right here in Valparaiso, IN. Other shops may offer similar services, but our services are the best, affordable and come with a personal touch.  
We are not your typical tattoo & piercing studio!

A different look from all of the rest, a comfortable & inviting atmosphere, clean & sterile standards of operation, professional & creative artists - these are just a few things that rise us above the other shops!  
Private artist's studio rooms allow for the clients comfort when consulting, tattooing or piercing!  
We will also provide you with aftercare information and sell aftercare products at reasonable costs 
that will help keep your tattoos clean & vibrant and all of your piercings healthy!

Studio Manager

Geoffrey was born in Africa, a long long time ago, so he was a real giarraffe at one time.
He sacrificed his life for the betterment of the people that live amongst the villages surrounding the fields that he roamed.

He does love it here at ASG INK, meeting all the friends that stop by that are in such awe of him, it makes him proud for all the good he
 has done & continues to accomplish, even just sitting here in our lobby!

You see....
Giaraffe run freely & wildly in Africa, 
just as Deer in America do.  
Similarly, the population is controled by the seasonal hunts & the animals are utilized for their meat & hydes,
humanely & legally!

the fees involved in the cost for organized hunts 
for an array of animals set in specific areas 
are used not only for the taxidermy 
& shipment of the mount, 
but also for water & medical supplies that are greatly needed & distributed throughout the villages AND the animals are butchered to feed the peoples & villages in the surrounding areas.
(Endangered animals are NOT part of these hunts!)

These hunts benefit the people much more so than their own hunts, for much of the carcass rots & becomes waste as most village hunters only take what can be carried or used right away 
and they don't have the added water & medical supplies!

Be proud of Geoffrey! Share his love story!
Also, Don't be shy while you are visiting,
he loves to be included in your selfies!
