Walker opens Asylum Tattoos and Fine Art on Straley Avenue

PRINCETON — For Bradley Walker, owner of  Asylum Tattoos and Fine Art, he sees his business as more than an average tattoo parlor.

“I want (it) to be known as a shop that features fine art rather than a run-of-the-mill tattoo parlor,” he said Wednesday.

An eight-year veteran of the tattoo business who opened Asylum Tattoos two weeks ago, Walker specializes in portraits and cover-ups.

“We also sell fine art and display both mine and others’ artwork,” he said.

Asked what he likes best about his work, Walker said, “I just like to draw. I like to take my work and draw it on someone else’s skin. I like to make my customers happy.”

He is located at 100 1/2 Straley Ave., next to Standard Exterminating.

His usual hours are 12—9 p.m., Monday—Thursday, and noon—midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

His phone number is 304-809-6837.
