Prix Body Piercing and Tattoo

Address: 56 E Colorado Blvd Pasadena, CA 91105

Phone: (626) 405-9253

Tattoo Artists: Tommy Borboa, Andres Saucedo

Tattoo Profile: Prix was established in Old Town Pasadena as a body piercing studio in 2000. A small team of dedicated employees and an owner who cares was all it took to get us off the ground. Once open, it didn’t take long to outgrow the studio’s original setup, a short year later a remodel was in order to accommodate our growing business and increasing clientele. It wasn’t long after that we welcomed our first tattoo artists in November of 2003. Here at Prix you can feel safe knowing that we only want the best for our clients. We do constant research and put into practice the safest, most advanced sterilization techniques. Our piercers and artists have a high level of experience and are dedicated to excellence in their work.
