Alter Ego Body Art Studio specializes in tattoos, body piercing, and branding.
Our South Hills design studio offers a safe and sterile environment that is comfortable and inviting.
Alter Ego is the only studio in Pittsburgh that offers branding. We also do complex surface piercing. We can help you design a custom piercing to give you a unique look, and we offer the perfect jewelry pieces to accent it.
Our experienced tattoo artists have a range of specialties that include traditional, new-school, biomechanical, black-and-gray, color, pin-ups, whimsy, and horror.
We offer services to people ages 13 and up (at the discretion of the artist and with in-person parental consent for minors).
When you walk in to Alter Ego, we will get you working with the artist who specializes in the art you want. Your artist will work with you on all facets of the project to ensure that your vision comes to life, while staying within any boundaries such as size or budget. We also follow up with you after the procedure to ensure that you are satisfied.
Please call or stop by, Monday through Saturday between noon and 8 p.m., and discover what makes us different.
Alter your body.
Boost your ego.
Become who you are.
