Yankee Doodle Dandy Tattoo was established April 21, 1997.

It was first at 2312 University Ave in the heart of the Drake University neighborhood, known as Dogtown. In August of 2005, we packed up the shop and moved it on skateboards down the block to 2322 University Ave, where it resides to this day.


We have had so many amazing artists call YDD home for guest spots. Freddy Corbin, Adam Ciferri, Pee Wee, Bill Stevenson, Doug Hardy, Matt Rousseau, Frank Carracioli, and Veronica Stice just to name a few.
