The Shop

We’ve been open since 1999 in the same location. We’re located at 1640 O St, on the North side of O St. between 16th and 17th streets. Get Route The shop hours are Tuesday-Saturday 1pm-9pm. The best way to reach us is to come down to the shop in person, but you can also call (402)438-8353, find us on Facebook and InstaGram (@BigOTattooNE), or our email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Our tattoo artists are BJ Nigh, Justin McIntyre, Logan Shackelford. On the piercing end, we've got Matt Bavougian and Mark Badberg and our Shop Manager / Tattoo Apprentice is Liz.

We welcome both walk-ins and appointment tattoos. However, we cannot guarantee times for walk-ins. Feel free to call down prior to your coming to the shop if you’d like to know if there is time for you. (We highly advise this if you’re coming from out of town). We are happy to work with all visiting clients and are glad to work something out with each individually. Our shop minimum is $60. Lots of tattoos are priced by the piece individually and larger session pieces are priced by the hour and we are $100-125 per hour.

We accept CASH ONLY for Tattoos, though, since Know Piercing is a separate business sharing the space, you can use cash or credit for your piercing needs.We do REQUIRE CASH DEPOSITS for all tattoo appointments. Most tattoos that can be completed in a single session require $60 deposit, while session work (ie: sleeves, back pieces, larger-than-a-magazine sized, etc.) require between $120. All deposits go towards the final cost of each tattoo. Deposits cannot be carried over and are non-refundable without a 24 hour notice prior to your appointment for any cancellations. A no-call, no-show (ie: you don’t call the required 24 hours prior) ends in a complete forfeit of your deposit.

We sell Gift Certificates in any amount you’d like. Certificates are for face-value and can be used for either tattooing or piercing.
