Founded as a private studio in 2016 by owner Kim Deakins; Pink Goblin is a female owned and operated tattoo studio located in the Chase Street warehouse artist community and is a safe space for all genders, religions, races, and orientations. 


As a female artist who had been in the industry for 7 years; Kim was aware that many tattooers and shops were not inclusive or safe spaces for a large sector of clients and even artists. Her goal was to change that with a different kind of studio and be a part of ushering in a new generation and culture within the industry. 

With the name evolving from Kim’s love of the science fiction/fantasy world- Pink Goblin fit the bill because she wanted a name that reflected what the space would be about: a chill, silly, fantastic, pro-female and all inclusive shop. A place where the goal is for people to be welcomed and appreciated when they come in, get the best quality tattooing we can provide and feel safe and respected as fellow human beings.

In Greek mythology, Hades, God of the underworld, used pomegranate seeds to trick Persephone into returning to the underworld for a few months of every year during which her mother Demeter mourned, no longer giving fertility to the earth. This was an ancient Greek explanation for Winter.

AMAZING experience! I usually am nervous to go into tattoo shops for the first time, but these people made me feel SO welcome! I loved everything about it. Everyone wore masks and everyone was so king. LYDIA was and is truly amazing. My husband snd I drive 1.5 hours just to get tattoos from her. We love the entire pink goblin family! Thank you for being so amazing and clean and sweet

I am beyond happy with my experience at Pink Goblin!! They have created an amazing atmosphere that's so easy-going and welcoming, I felt completely at ease the moment I walked in the door. Emmi did my tattoo, and I am absolutely over-the-moon!! Incredibly easy to talk to and insanely talented, and the same can be said for every artist present. The amount of talent represented at this shop is just incredible.
