Good Life Goes Gold

We got gold!

Good Life is now carrying a gold body jewelry! We have options for most piercings, and you can even wear most styles in fresh piercings. Keep an eye on Jeremiah, Heather, and Aaron’s instagrams for pictures they post of piercings they’ve done in gold. In the meantime… check some of it out!

Stop in any time and any of the piercers would be happy to show you all of the options – or even set up a custom order for you!

Fresh look and new flash for spring

We’ve been making a few changes around the shop over the course of the winter…
New lights, new paintings, and a new mural are making it feel nice and fresh in here, and we’re ready to keep the hustle moving into spring!


Mural by Jesse Strother and Vic Savage

We re-finished an entire wall of the shop with original hand-painted flash sheets from our own tattooers (and a few friends)! In total there are 75 sheets of flash up and we’re planning on adding more and changing them out soon!

Here are a few of our favorites…

Best Wishes to John Rippey

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 for updates.
