About Us

The Holy Mackerel was born in the Spring of 2005 and at first only encompassed the piercing work of Verno. Over the last four years the vision of The Holy Mackerel has grown and it was decided that rather than just being a presence in the piercing community, it would be expanded to a full scale studio that would also include custom tattooing. A location was found and a high-end studio was born. At The Holy Mackerel our mission is to champion others to grow personally and artistically and to ensure your experience is safe, comfortable and fun.
