Transformation Gallery and Tattoo opened its doors to the public on May 1, 2010, realizing a dream to bring a new genre of tattooing to Springfield. Gabe Tenneson and Austin Evans, the owners, are highly accomplished artists who have a passion for art in many forms and apply their extensive knowledge to the medium of tattooing. As an art gallery, Transformation adds to the rich art culture prominently found in downtown Springfield in addition to providing the public with a much better option for tattoos.
Transformation Gallery and Tattoo does not use any pre-fabricated artwork or flash and offers its clients custom designs. Most work is accomplished by utilizing the freehand method and future touchups are free of charge. Transformation is able to accomplish any artistic task imaginable including the repair or cover of any pre-existing work. It is advantageous for you to compare our portfolios with others before making the important decision towards permanent artwork. The majority of tattooists are not artists and not all tattoos are performed in equality. Please do your research before selecting a tattoo in order to avoid requiring a cover-up or contracting a blood-borne disease. Austin and Gabe’s Artwork is posted in the Gallery and is available for purchase along with several other works from various artists including several members of the Evangel University art department. Gabe and Austin attribute their success to God who has continued to transform their lives and the lives of others. If you find yourself in need of a higher quality level of art, tattoos or otherwise, or just need someone to talk to, please feel free to stop in.
