Our history


Wildside Tattooing & Body Piercing was established back in 1998 in Mt Vernon, IA. We ran shop there for 8 years until we found our location on First Ave in Cedar Rapids. We moved to Cedar Rapids in 2006 and leased the shop for 1 year and then bought the property in 2007.


Things were going good and business was good until June of 2008 when the FLOOD came through Cedar Rapids and took everything we had worked so hard for.

Wildside Tattooing & Body Piercing lost everything in the flood. We were lucky to quickly find a temporary location within 2 weeks after the flood and were open within the month. We leased a building on the southeast side for 1 year and in the meantime, we rebuilt Wildside Tattooing & Body Piercing bigger and better than before.


We moved back to our original location in June of 2009. We would like to thank our customers and staff who supported us during that difficult time.
