Hello! This is Inkwitch...
Hi there, my name is Meryl Hurwich. I am the owner and principal tattooer here at Inkwitch Tattoo. I started tattooing in 1999 under the tutelage of amazing tattooer/artist Denise de la Cerda. My background is in art; my Mom always said I was using a pencil before I could walk! (Don't know about the truth of that, but it makes for an interesting anecdote). I do know that I can't remember a time when drawing wasn't a part of my daily existence. I have a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design, and found my best creative expression in the world of tattoo.
My shop is staffed by female artists. This is not by design or intention but by chance. Everyone here is a member of the APT (the Alliance of Professional Tattooers - an organization invested in educating and maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitary practices in professional tattooing.) All of my employees have been trained personally by me in the art of Tattoo, and have undergone a rigorous minimum of a year or more before becoming employees. This May will be my 9th year in business here in Stroudsburg.
Whether you are coming in to get a small tattoo, or are setting up a consultation to get that backpiece you've been envisioning for years makes no difference to us at Inkwitch. You and your tattoo will receive the height of our attention, time, and creativity. A customer once told me that I was in the business of giving people happiness. That really is the bottom line when you consider it, isn't it? I want you to be involved in the experience of planning your piece, as comfortable as possible while getting it, and in love with it for the rest of your life!
Kitty and I also want you to refer us to a million or two of your closer friends. So, you can see we are deeply invested in our work here at Inkwitch.
Stop in, chat with Meryl or Kitty about your innermost tattoo wishes, set up an appointment or get in the chair right now. We're looking forward to seeing you!
