Cicada Tattoo Shop – Seattle, WA07.05.18

If you would like to get the most recent updates on our latest creations, then like us on facebook

Follow us on instagram too!

We are open Fri-Wed, 12-8 pm, closed on Thursdays.

Our phone number is 206-327-9309

Our email address is [emailprotected]

We are located at 10309 Aurora Ave N (highway 99). Seattle, Washington. 98133.

Cicada Tattoo is a quality tattoo shop located in the north endof Seattle, WA. We are just north of Greenlake, nestled between Northgate and Greenwood, a block from Oak Tree Cinema. The shop offers spacious, clean studios and a relaxed environment.

There is plenty of street parking available on the side streets or on the other side of Aurora.

We are closed on Thursdays, certain holidays, and during some regional tattoo conventions including the Seattle Tattoo Expo.

We offer many styles. Whether it be a large dragon sleeve, a custom piece on the ribs; or just a small star, cross, or butterfly on a foot or wrist, we are happy to work with your ideas and realize your vision. Some of the things we enjoy doing: traditional Japanese, traditional American old school, new school, bio-mechanical, script, black and gray, realistic portraits of pets or love ones, animals, angels, creatures and monsters, flowers, abstract designs, reworking older designs to bring them to life, cover-ups (instead of removal), and larger free hand compositions that compliment the shapes and forms of the body.

Many of the designs in our portfolios are one of a kind custom pieces that we have drawn for our clients. We also have a great collection of tattoo flash available if you want to choose from already rendered pictures. Our walls are covered with hand drawn and painted artwork from artists who have worked in our industry for the last one hundred years or more.

The process can be confusing at times, especially for those who are new to it. Weve written a bit here, so that you may avoid the pitfalls and understand what to expect

Yes and no. We are more than happy to tattoo you on the spot if possible, but often our artists are already booked up for the day, so its a good idea to set things up ahead of time. If the artist is available, they can draw up simple tattoos while you wait, but larger more complicated tattoos will take some planning so an appointment will still have to be made in order to give the artist time to properly prepare.

If the tattoo is fairly simple and straight forward, you can set up an appointment over the phone. The number is 206-327-9309. We do require a deposit so you would need to use a credit card. Anyone at the shop can set this up for you. We do not generally schedule appointments via email because the flow of communication is too stilted.

If the tattoo is a bit more complicated you should speak directly to the tattoo artist. If you live relatively close, it is always best to stop in and talk to the artist face to face. If you are from out of town or it is difficult to make it in, you can still make the appointment over the phone, but you will want to talk directly to the artist. Often it is helpful to also email the artist all precise details about the tattoo and attach any relevant reference photos. [emailprotected]

The Artist will want to know such things as size of the tattoo, placement on body, any existing tattoos that need to be worked around or incorporated, whether the piece will be in color or black and gray. The artist will also want to know the style you are going for (realism, old school, cartoonish, stylized, abstract, design, etc.).

If you randomly come by the shop there may be an artist not currently working who will be happy to talk to you about your tattoo. But if the artist you desire is busy tattooing, they may not be able to talk at all. At best they can only take a brief break to set up an appointment or answer a quick question, but will not be able to talk at length or explore ideas. Similarly, if you call and request a certain artist. The artist will not be able to chat if busy tattooing and a message will be taken. Which leads us to the consultation appointment.

Since artists are often busy, a consultation appointment is the perfect way to insure your tattoo ideas get the attention they deserve. You can set up the appointment over the phone or in person. Anyone at the shop can schedule it for you. You can request the appointment to be made with a certain artist. If you are not particular about who does the tattoo, we will pick one for you based on who is available on the day you are available to come in. For most consultation appointments, we set aside a half hour of time so that your ideas can be properly discussed. If necessary we can look at some pictures on the internet or in books. The consultation is for brainstorming moreso than drawing: some rough sketching may be done at that time, but usually the artists saves the actual drawing for later. There is no deposit necessary for a consultation, and no obligation to get the tattoo. If you feel good about things, the artist will then schedule you for the actual tattoo appointment.

To set up a tattoo appointment we will require a deposit. For most tattoos we require $80, but the artist may ask for more, especially for a larger piece. This money lets us know that you are serious before we commit time to drawing. We do not actually charge anything to draw; this money will eventually all be applied to your tattoo. If your tattoo involves multiple appointments, the money will be carried over to hold each subsequent appointments and will then be applied to the cost of your final session. The deposit is not refundable, so if you decide not to get tattooed after all, the artist will keep the money as compensation for drawing or planning of the tattoo. If you miss your appointment without letting us know ahead of time, the deposit will be forfeited. We require at least 48 hours cancellation notice for rescheduling. Anything less than that does not give the artist time to book another client, so the artist would be left essentially unemployed for that day.

Our Prices start at $80 for the smallest tattoos. Almost every shop has a minimum to make sure they are compensated for materials and preparation time. This is a set up fee and is charged at the beginning of each session. The fee is gradually phased out as the tattooing time approaches two hours in any given session.

In addition to the $80 set up fee, there is also an hourly charge. The hourly rate is $175. Tattoos over two hours in a given session pay only the hourly.

Artists reserve the right to quote a flat price that differs from standard pricing. Examples of this would be a tattoo that takes a long amount of preparation for a quick tattoo. Or for difficult areas, like fingers, which may likely require a touch up.

We have a talented crew here. Most of the artists have over ten years experience. We have dedicated our lives to the art, and look forward to making a beautiful tattoo for you.

SD Tattoo and Body Piercing Rated Best Shop San Diego03.19.18

I have been in tattoo shops all over the US and I have to say Im very impressed with SD Tattoo. The level of care given to overall cleanliness and the owners ideas as for how a tattoo shop should be ran Are without question Top Shelf ! The artists they have on staff are some of the best the west coast has to offer !

I think after looking all over San Diego for the right artist I found one of, if not the best, in one of their new artists, Daniel Pacheco. He is finishing a sleeve on me and while doing it recoloring some older work, I chose to do my left arm in all Viking and Celtic style tribal mixed with some old school tribal that was done 20 years ago.By then apprentice, Chris Garver.

Im in my 40s and consider myself a vet to tattoo shops, and the day to day scene of the shop life I have 35 different pieces from some of East Coasts best artists and also have an older brother who owned tattoo shops in Augusta and in Atlanta. I think I know a good shop from a great one and SD Tattoo Is Great !


My boyfriend and I were looking for a tattoo shop and this one we found. Corei was our artist. We was very welcoming and accepted to make the designs that same day. GREAT art pieces. We then decided we wanted to get the tattoos done the same day and he accepted to take us in. He even stayed a little longer in the shop because there was two of us. And we was also so fun ! Just a chill person who knows what hes doing.

We were so impressed by the cleanliness and the quality of the work! My boyfriend asked for colors in his which were so cool and bright. For me it was my first one and it wasnt even that bad ! We are truly happy with the work and the talent. Even though I live 1 hour and 30 minutes away this will definitely be the place I will come to for my next one. AWESOME job!


I went here on a whim right before leaving the country. I went to get my belly button pierced and everything went way smoother than I couldve ever imagined. Id never even been in a tattoo shop before, let alone get a piercing and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. As far as the actual piercing went, I hyped it up in my mind and was expecting it to be extremely painful and it was almost painless. Just a small pinch and it was all over. Not only was it painless, but the guy who did it, Kevan, made my crooked belly button look straighter. So far about 36 hours later everything is still painless and looks good. If youre considering getting a navel piercing this is your place to go!


I was looking into getting a new tattoo for the first time in 7 years. I researched for months and finally decided on SD tattoo. I looked at all their artist through their website and fell in love with Dannys work. I loved his black n grey and realistic animals. To say I love my tattoo is an understatement. Besides the amazing tattoo I got, Danny was just overall a great person to work with. He even offered me snacks in case I got hungry. I will defiantly be coming back very soon too have Danny do more work!


Slim was absolutely AMAZING! He did everything I asked for and more! The line work is amazing as I only got an outline today! I walked in with no appointment and had started being helped by someone else. When the other artist realized he had an appointment Slim took right over! He asked me questions and continuously showed me what he was drawing so he knew Id be happy! He reassured me that it was okay that I kept changing my mind! He was so gentle and it barely hurt! It was the best tattoo experience Ive ever had and I cant wait to go back and see him again! Thank you again for making my day!


Love this shop! I drive all the way here from Arizona for my tattoos. I only trust the guys here, no one else! I have gotten all my tattoos here done by Tommy. He is an amazing artist, and wonderful at free hand. He definitely takes his time and tries his hardest to do a quality tattoo EVERY time, no matter how big or small. He is willing to work with clients in order to get them a quality tattoo as soon as possible. He is always just as excited for my tattoos as I am! Love this shop and will be going back all the time, not trusting anyone else on the West Coast.


I went to SD Tattoo while visiting San Diego. The shop has a cool tattoo shop vibe, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and big in my book-clean. I walked in on a Saturday afternoon and I was lucky they had a tattooer available to do a fairly big piece for a walk in. The other artists were friendly and offered us water and brought my fianc a chair to sit in by me. My artist was helpful in making my design picture come alive and spent time perfecting the drawing. They looked up designs online and the other artists came over to observe while I was getting my tat. They played music overhead and it was a great experience. There are definitely shops that are less friendly I have been to so I really valued this experience and I would go back if I find myself in SD again needing some ink.


SD Tattoo is, hands down, the best tattoo parlor in San Diego. The shop is extraordinarily clean and is the most professional run shop I have been in. I have a rare condition that requires extra care and I was so impressed that Slim took the time to look up what I have and the best way to deal with it. During our session he was extremely caring and concerned that I was comfortable at all times. His demeanor is so calming and it made me comfortable knowing he genuinely cared about my health and the work he does. He also asked if I was willing to let some of the other artists there watch while he was working on me, and explained why it is so important to listen to your client so as to do the safest, cleanest, best job possible. Since my skin is stretchy Slim had to work on very small portions at a time and constantly check on progress so that my tattoo looked exactly like I wanted. I told him my idea and a few details that I wanted incorporated and he did the most amazing job creating and bringing to life what I wanted. For someone, like me, just starting out on this journey I am so happy to have found SD Tattoo and look forward to many more sessions!

Top Tattoo Artists in Southern California | Six Feet Under11.06.17

> View Gallery Corey Miller Owner/Artist Ask premier tattoo artist Corey Miller how he got into the tattoo business, and he will probably tell you it was ‘by hanging around the wrong people.’ And if you have a sense of humor and you get it, he may tell you the real story.

In 1982, a fifteen-year-old Corey Miller was playing drums in a punk rock band and he decided he needed a tattoo. So he carved out his first tattoo on himself using a needle with thread wrapped around it. This inspired Corey to build his own tattooing machine, which consisted of a fish tank pump motor, a bent toothbrush, the tip of a Bic pen, and some guitar string as a needle. He used to carry his homemade contraption around in a Vans shoe box with a bottle of Pelican ink.

By 1983, Corey ventured out to Hollywood and found himself at the first real tattoo parlor he had ever set foot in, Spotlight Tattoo, run by the venerable Bob Roberts. Spotlight Tattoo was the hardest punk rock tattoo shop in Hollywood, and Corey was intrigued by the hand-drawn skulls and other aggressive designs on the walls. And the technology they used impressed him. He knew his days of slinging tattoos out of a shoe box were numbered and that he would soon be hammering out ink with one of the strong machines they were using at Spotlight.

A year later, Corey went to Franco’s, the local tattoo parlor in Ontario, California. Franco was a 360-pound Sicilian with gold teeth, a Mohawk, and a .357 magnum slung in a shoulder harness. Corey and his buddies would go to Franco’s after school to drink beers and do whatever else they wanted to do. By summertime, Corey was drawing designs and taking out the trash at the shop, and Franco and the boys started calling him the shop hand. Franco’s soon closed after what Corey describes as some ‘pretty insane nights of fights, drunkenness, gunfire, arrests, and tattooing,’ but not before Franco sold Corey what he thought was a broken tattoo machine that turned out to work just fine.

Things changed for Corey in 1987 on the night he met tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at a house party. Mahoney was performing his handiwork on some partygoers, and after watching him work, Corey realized there was a whole other level to the tattoo game. He started hanging out at the shop where Mahoney worked. The shop was called Fat Georges Tattoo Gallery, and it was located in a tough neighborhood in La Puente, California. Over time, Corey started hitting Fat George up for a job as a tattoo artist. At long last, Fat George gave Corey his big break. Mahoney was making plans to open a new shop out in Los Angeles, and that meant that a chair was opening up. All of a sudden, Corey Miller had his first real job inking tattoos.

Corey turned twenty-one at Fat Georges in 1987, and as a young man in a gang-related neighborhood, the busy tattoo parlor just may have saved his life. While his friends were getting busted for anything from drunk driving to serious felonies, Corey was busy in the safe haven of the shop inking up to ten tattoos a day. Then another turning point came for Corey Miller in 1989 on the day Dick Warsocki walked into the shop.

Warsocki was known for his beautiful Native American fine-line tattoos. When Warsocki walked into Fat Georges that day he saw Corey, who just happened to be hammering out an amazing Indian Head tattoo on a customers back. Warsocki complimented him on the design, told Corey he was headed to New Orleans for a tattoo convention, and asked if Corey wanted to go along and crash on his hotel floor. Corey took him up on the offer, and at the convention in New Orleans, Corey found a whole new realm of tattoo artistry.

He met famed artists such as Guy Atchison and Eddie Deutsche. They tattooed with a style that Corey says had ‘absolutely no boundaries’ and that was ‘limited only to imagination.’ Corey also met one of his closest friends at the convention, Suzanne Fauser. The trip was the beginning of his annual voyages to Ann Arbor, Michigan, over the next twelve years. In fact, his career would take Corey Miller all over the United States, from Los Angeles to New York to Hawaii, and to a host of worldwide destinations such as Canada, France, Amsterdam, and Japan. He would eventually become one of the most sought-after purveyors of ink in modern times.

But lets get back to our story. It was 1989, and upon his return from that first tattoo convention in New Orleans, Corey got a break from the one and only Jack Rudy, who gave him a job at Good Time Charlies Tattooland in Anaheim, California. Good Time Charlies was an institution in the tattoo world. Artists such as Mark Mahoney, Freddy Negrete, and Dick Warsocki had previously worked at Good Time Charlies, and it was there that Corey got the chance to work with Jack Rudy and Mike Brownartists whom Corey collectively refers to as ‘the Kings of Black and Grey.’ Corey considers himself fortunate to have learned some important technical skills from Brown and to have seen masterpieces created by the hand of Jack Rudy, his friend and mentor.

In 1991, Corey Miller and two business partners opened Optic Overdrive, the first tattoo shop in Upland, California. The shop lasted about two years and, in addition to drilling some amazing tattoos, also hosted an unforgettable shootout on the front porch. Unfortunately, Corey soon had to throw one of his partners out, and the other took an extended vacation as a guest of the State. Soon, Corey was back to traveling and, when at home, tattooing in his basement. It was in that dank, underground dungeon that the name ‘Six Feet Under’ was born. Within three years, and after tattooing out of the back of a barbershop, Corey opened his own tattoo parlor, complete with a staff of two artistshimself and Henry Powell. Then on April Fools Day in 1997, Corey Miller opened up shop in his own building in downtown Upland, and that is where the Six Feet Under Tattoo Parlor is today.

Looking back on his formative years, Corey feels lucky to have experienced the best and the worst of the tattoo business. He never had a formal apprenticeship, as many tattoo artists do, but instead got his education by ‘going on my own and falling on my face and doing it all again on my own terms.’

His career has run the gamut from the street shop of Fat Georges to the ‘Kustom Klass’ of Good Time Charlies Tattooland, and everywhere in between.

For Corey, a couple of the highlights of his career include being sought out by two incredible artists. The first was when he tattooed James Hetfield of Metallica and designed a dragon for Hetfields Gibson Les Paul guitar. The second highlight was when custom motorcycle artist Jesse James asked him to tattoo the $100 bill on Jamess back.

But every tattoo Corey Miller designs, whether for customers famous or unknown, is itself a unique and timeless work of art. In addition, he continues to break new ground by engineering cutting-edge tattooing tools. He has seen a lot of changes during his more than thirty years experience in the business, and looking into the next millennium, the sky is the limit for Corey Miller and his house of original tattoo design, the Six Feet Under Tattoo Parlor.

Henry Powell has been tattooing since 1989 and has done just about everything you can think of. That includes original pieces, classics, religious, portraits, cover-ups, and original characters. The love for tattoos started for Henry when he was just 15 when he would stay up and watch a friend do tattoos out of his garage with a home-made machine. Henry was instantly hooked and could not wait to get his first tattoo. This is when Henry first ran into Corey Miller at the young ripe age of 16 at Fat Georges. Corey unknowingly tattooed a minor and started a new lifestyle for Henry. After this tattoo, Henry spent countless hours hanging around TattooLand, after Corey moved there, so he could study the artists who worked there. Once Henry knew this was the life-style he wanted he decided to try things out for himself.

It all started back in a small room that he called home with a handmade rotary machine. Innocent bystanders volunteered their skin in return for artwork. After a little more experience and much better equipment, Henry ventured into Hollywood and started working at a famous street shop. This is when Henry gradually grew into his own style that specializes in bright colors and black and gray. After a while, Henry wanted to further expand his career and around the same time was offered the opportunity to work with his friend and mentor Corey Miller at Optic Overdrive. Corey took him under his wing and showed him the dark side. This is the time in his career that he picked up all of his technical skills once he was working side by side with Corey. After closing the doors there after an unmentionable mishap, Henry had the opportunity to relocate to Hollywood. This is the same time that Corey was building Six Feet Under. While in Hollywood he worked for Gil Montie at Tattoo Mania. Henry had the opportunity to work along side some of the best artist which included Mark Mahoney and Gil Montie. Henry has truly grown as an artist because of these various experiences with such talented artists.

Once Six Feet Under opened it doors back in 1997, Henry joined up with Corey again and has been collaborating on pieces with Corey ever since. With the freedom any artist would want, Henry has been able to fully explore all styles of tattooing and painting. He is known for his Asian stylized tattoos and religious pieces. If you visit the Shop you can experience Henrys other artistic talents including paintings in oil, acrylic, and water colors.
