8.19.19 Business Bark Out - Nokomis Tattoo

August 12, 2019 | by Corey Lundgren (Bark Out Editor)

This Business Bark Out is for our friends over at Nokomis Tattoo Shop. They are located in South Minneapolis in the Nokomis area and do walk-in tattoos everyday as well as appointments. This shop is owned & operated by Mike Welsh, better known in the tattoo world as "Metal Mike". He is a huge advocate for the pit bull breed and is doing great things in the community. 

Nokomis Tattoo has a great event space separate from where their artist tattoo. This is what makes it possible for them to be the first tattoo shop in Minnesota to host dog adoption events. Their first one is coming up on August 24th with Underdog Rescue. There will be free treats and refreshments for humans and dogs provided by Thirsty Whale Bakery and they will be doing several giveaways! 

Mike & his family adopted their pit bull, Cricket, six years ago through Underdog Rescue. They have a beautiful mural of Cricket and Oliver (their other dog) painted on the back of their shop. Nokomis Tattoo will be hosting an adoption event with Minnesota Pit Bull Rescue on Saturday, October 12th from 1-3:00 P.M. We are grateful for Mike and everyone at Nokomis Tattoo, not only for allowing us to share their space, but for their recent donation to our rescue and for being great advocates for the pit bull type breed. Please, stop by their shop and check them out and swing by both their events on August 24th and October 12th!

Do you have a love for pitties or support the breed in some way? We'd love to give you your very own Bark Out. Please email our Event/Social Media Coordinator at
