Websites for clients now revamped in wordpress.

We have started to convert websites for our tattoo artist and studio clients over to wordpress. This allows artists or studio staff that have minimal computer skills to easily update their own websites from any computer, tablet or even cell phone to add photos and videos to their website. It is a versatile program that has many easy to access tutorials on how to use it and allows you to design and learn at your own pace.

It is ideal to use and integrate with social media, like instagram, facebook, and twitter as well as others and scalable to add as much or as little social media as you prefer.

Tattoos.com also provides design assistance, converts old HTML sites to / and email support to answer any questions or problems you may have.  This all can be done for as little as 500.00 by us or less if you are familiar with / yourself.

All of our clients will be posted to our galleries and social media pages.  To get a no cost estimate of how much to convert and host your old site into a / site. Call our office 1-800-214-7104 or 416-203-7399 outside North America or email Tattoos.com

Our latest projects are http://newmoontattoo.com and http://tattoosfortheindividual.com we will be posting new sites weekly.

“The new / template format that Tattoos.com is now offering to set up is great! Finally I have complete control over the content, layout and other aspects of my website. It’s so easy to use, I can update my site as easy as updating a blog! This new system makes it possible for me to keep the site current to better represent our work and to help our business grow”.
-Kurt Wiscombe, Tattoos for the Individual
