We are happy to welcome our newest tattooer to Good Life! Ben MacTaggart just re-located to Akron, after working at our sister-shop Ink Assassins in Erie, PA. We couldn’t be happier to have him!
Our friend John Rippey will be leaving Good Life as of September 22nd. He will be returning to his hometown of Frederick Maryland to work at Classic Electric Tattoo.
“Thank you so much to all of the friends and clients I have made while living in Akron. As a result of your loyalty and support, I was able to successfully pursue and progress my tattooing. It has been a pleasure to work with you all, therefore it saddens me to move on.”
For any clients with unfinished projects, please contact the shop, or John, as soon as possible so schedules can be best accommodated. This offer does not exclude anyone desiring a new smaller project. We look forward to seeing any and all of you soon. For anyone who is unable to make the cut-off date do not worry. John will be returning for guest spots. Stay tuned at www.johnrippey.com for updates.
It’s shaping up to be a pretty busy month here at Good Life! Here’s what we’ve got going on:
July 10th & 11th Krooked Ken, from Black Anchor in Denton, Maryland, will be doing a guest-spot at the shop! Check out his portfolio, and come in to set up an appointment, first-come, first-serve! Follow Ken on Instagram @krookedken.
The Cleveland Tattoo Expo is coming up on the 13th thru the 15th! This is the first year for this event and many great artists will be in attendance along with quality vendors, seminars for tattooers, contests, and entertainment. Jesse Strother, Brian McFadden, Brent Vann and John Rippey will be at the Good Life booth along with some of our good friends coming from Chicago, Frederick, Waashington D.C., and more! It should make for a super fun weekend.

After 2 years of serving the Akron community, our friend Dustin Nowlin will be taking his talents to Cleveland. As of April 4th 2012, he’ll no longer be taking appointments at Good Life. Dustin will be continuing to practice his craft full-time in his hometown of Cleveland at (the soon to be renamed) Cleveland Ink, located in the Gordon Sq. Arts District.
“I’d like to Thank everyone who supported me in The CAK area and my collegues and friends @ Good Life.” -Dustin
