Hudson Shop

Duluth Shop

Joseph John (Owner and Founder of Anchors End ) came to Duluth in 2003 to start a true tattoo shop.  A tattoo shop supported by fellow tattooers that have come and gone or have opened other shops themselves.  All while maintaining his vision of technically sound, artistic and clean tattoos. 

The staff at Anchors End Duluth not only have  artistic chops to knock your socks off but have also been vigorously trained to maintain the highest standard of customer care.  In other words...they are super nice dudes. 

Where we dwell
Duluth's oldest, friendliest, and best tattoo shop is located at 122 W. 1st. street between first ave. and second ave. in beautiful, historic, downtown Duluth MN.

Anchors End Hudson recently opened its doors in Spring 2012.  While we’re the new kids on the block in Hudson, our artists are seasoned veterans in the tattoo industry.  Founder Joseph John, and co owners Billy Mizejewski and Aaron Lassi have a combined 34 years of experience piercing and tattooing. 

Our mission is to blow your mind by offering the very best customer service and the highest quality body art in a welcome and relaxing environment.  We don’t just offer killer tattoos and piercings, we offer you an experience that will last a lifetime.

Our full time staff is here to guide you through your desired transformation, whether it’s your first piercing or your tenth tattoo.  Our bread and butter is custom pieces and cover-ups, and we also do smaller pieces and lettering.  

Where we dwell
Our studio is located in the penthouse of a historic building in downtown Hudson with stellar views of the St. Croix.  (Above the Dragon Pearl Restaurant)  Find out how to get here.


Costa Rica Shop

The Costa Rica shop was the second Anchors End to open in April 2006.   The growth in a touristic foreign city was an amazing adventure in diversity!  Jaco embraced us as a brother/sister to the community. "Kreely Tackett" rocks it with a fun crew dedicated to the arts. 

Special thanks to friends we still consider family. Los Amigos (Chris Mandel and Staff)  (Dave sand Sara)
