Meet Apryl and Anthony Triana of 27 Tattoo Studio in Downtown Phoenix

Today we’d like to introduce you to Apryl and Anthony Triana.

Apryl and Anthony, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
27 Tattoo Studio started as an idea for a custom high end tattoo studio that would be geared towards the comfort and experience for the client. After being in the industry for 10+ years combined, Anthony and I wanted to put something together that was different than the standard street shop.

We wanted to focus on great customer service, custom designs made for each person and a modern decor to make the clients feel at home.

I (Apryl) had apprenticed and tattooed in Arizona 16 years ago and Anthony went to high school and grew up in Phoenix, so we knew when we had the idea to open a shop that that’s where we wanted it to be.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Every new business has its struggles. I can thankfully say that ours was for a very brief time. Our main struggle in the beginning was that we were somewhat off the main road and kind of “hidden” from the busy street. Clients were having a hard time finding us at first, but once our clientele grew, it wasn’t an issue anymore. Building clientele is usually a struggle in a new city, but with us both living in the area before, we were able to stay busy in the beginning with people we knew and gain new clientele pretty fast through word of mouth.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with 27 Tattoo Studio – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are both tattoo artists and owners of 27 Tattoo. Anthony specializes in black geometric work and I specialize in stylized color but also do a little bit of everything.

We are super proud to be one of the top rated shops online and constantly be told how happy our clients are with the studios vibe, customer service, cleanliness and overall tattoo experience.

Our shop is not a typical shop that you can just walk into and pick a design off the wall. We are an all custom based shop which means we design each one of a kind piece for the client. We have a shop full of talented artists who specialize in different styles, so we can pair the client with the person who will best fit their style. Our shop doesn’t look like a typical tattoo shop either. It is filled with modern wood and pipe work decor, interesting Knick knacks and various painting and artworks from many different artists from all over the world.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Over the 7 years that we have been open, we have learned many things and want to continue to keep growing as a shop and artists combined.

As a husband and wife team, We are always trying to put our heads together and think of new ways to make our clients experience that much better and make sure every person that leaves our shop, leaves happy.

We plan to continue to be one of the best rated studios in the city, and keep putting our quality custom tattoos out there for people to enjoy.

We would like to hold more charity events in the future to give back to our community that has given so much to us.
