About Psycotats

Welcome to Psycotats, a body piercing and tattoo store down in Brandon, Florida. If you’re thinking of heading down to see us for some body modification, then let us first introduce you to what we’re about. 

We’re Daniel and Peter, best friends turned tattoo artists. We met in kindergarten and began our tattoo journey together when we left school 10 years ago. It was six years ago when we opened Psycotats in 2017, and we’ve been growing our team and honing our skills ever since. 

Let's meet the team!

Daniel O'Hara 

Daniel O'Hara

Daniel has loved the idea of tattooing ever since he got in trouble for drawing all over his schoolwork. With 10 years in the industry, he’s seen it all! He specializes in large pieces to wrap around arms and legs and can cover any area in amazing block designs.

Daniel loves working at Psycotats, but you’ll also often find him making the rounds at local tattoo fairs. He’s also a regular guest artist at many of the local shops around Florida. When he’s not working, he’s relaxing with his three Pitbulls, Moose, Goose, and Dandelion.

Peter Beaker

Peter studied fine art at college and loves taking on challenging projects involving intricate patterns and details. If you’re prepared to spend hours in the chair getting an unreal piece of artwork permanently etched onto your body, then book in with Peter today!

His favorite job is filling in the gaps between larger tattoos to create a sleeve effect. Daniel and Peter have often worked together to create sleeves of large, bold designs filled in with minuscule meaningful patterns.

Peter enjoys spending his free time with his wife and children, enjoying the great outdoors, and creating art.

But that’s enough about us! 

Meet The Wider Team!

Here at Psycotat, we have three full-time team members alongside Daniel and Peter. 

Megan Ivy

Megan has been a tattoo artist for four years now, mainly traveling around the US to tattoo people at conventions and tattoo shows. She loves the idea of her work being seen all over the world thanks to tattooing people from many different backgrounds.

Megan first started working at Psycotat in 2021 and has quickly become a favorite artist. She specializes in character work and cartoon drawings, and she loves creating cute images that juxtapose the hardcore image of tattoos.

Kai Falmer

Kai has over a decade of tattooing experience, with a clear favorite style of lifelike imagery. His work of real people from reference pictures is amazing. If you’re looking for a realistic tattoo of anything, Kai is the man to book with.

Kai also has plenty of flash tattoos stored away for a rainy day. From skulls and roses to his own twist on TV characters, he is bound to have a flash design tailored to your taste.

More About Us…

The likelihood is that, if you’ve come to our about us page, you’re considering getting a tattoo with us. Congratulations! You’ve made the first step in a very exciting journey. 

Let’s answer some of the most common questions we get to put your mind at ease and help you learn more about how we tattoo you. 

How Do I Make An Appointment? 

You can contact the artist you want to tattoo you on their personal Instagram pages. Each artist is in charge of their own diaries, so you’ll need to sign up for their individual waitlists. 

We know that it can be annoying when you have to wait months for an appointment, but our artists are worth the wait. We’re only human! We’re working as quickly as we can to get you all in. 

Do You Take Walk-Ins? 

We have allotted time for walk-in appointments, every Tuesday from 10 am to 12 pm. These appointments are first come, first served, and there’s no guarantee we’ll get to everyone who turns up. The artist will change each week, so you’ll never know who you’re going to get!

To secure a confirmed appointment, contact your desired tattoo artist on Instagram. Please don’t come to the store without an appointment outside of these walk-in hours. 

Does Tattooing Hurt? 

Everyone is different - some people don’t feel any pain at all! However, the majority of people will feel some degree of discomfort. The pain is often manageable without painkillers, so we don’t offer these to our clients. 

However, if you feel like the pain is too much, you can tap out at any time and we’ll take a break. If it’s too much to finish the entire tattoo in one session, we can book you in for another appointment and finish it another time. 

How Should I Prepare For My Appointment?

We ask that you don’t drink alcohol or use any blood thinning medication 24 hours before the appointment. Please don’t use tanning beds for at least two weeks before a tattoo appointment, and limit your exposure to the sun. 

Before your appointment, eat normally and make sure you get a full night’s sleep. Bring a bottle of water with you to keep hydrated. Wear loose clothing wherever you’re getting the tattoo, and make sure the area is easily accessible.
