As global concern about the current COVID-19 outbreak grows, we’re doing our best to keep everyone healthy and safe while also minimizing the disruptions to our day-to-day operations.
We’re closely monitoring the situation and know that misinformation and fear can spread more virulently than the virus itself, and we want to discourage false information from circulating. If you are looking for trusted, up-to-date information, we recommend visiting the specific coronavirus websites of the CDC or the WHO.
Effective immediately Inksmith & Rogers will be closing until April 1, 2020, unless otherwise instructed. If you have an appointment your deposit will be safe. We will contact you once we have more information about reopening. Tattooing is everything to us, but for everyone’s health and safety we are closing to stay ahead of the curve, in an attempt to minimize exposure as much as possible. We will update everyone as soon as we know our reopening date. The Inksmith & rogers crew is nothing without all of you. We truly appreciate the understanding and patience. Please stay safe.

Eric appeared both locally and nationally on such television shows as the Today Show, helping swing tattooing into popularity. At one time, Eric owned the largest number of tattoo shops throughout northern Florida and New Mexico. Widely known for his bright pigments and applying colors, that both enhance and compliment each other. Eric is known as a brilliant shader and craftsman. Thus, Eric was witness to, and generator of, tattoo’s evolution and popularity.
After several years of tattooing, Eric had the great luck to meet Paul Rogers. Paul, an old school carnie tattooist, perfected the art of crafting the tattoo machine. Paul shared his techniques and tricks with Eric, whom became the inheritor of Paul’s machine mechanics. This capability, within the craft, is extremely important to tattooists. Paul revealed his generous spirit and plethora of knowledge, with Eric. After Paul persuaded Eric to move to Jacksonville, their friendship and working relationship evolved. Eric honored Paul by combining their names in a new company, Inksmith© & Rogers™. That spirit continues among all our staff, in their support, care, and sharing of creative knowledge. They get together for flash painting parties, group outings, and gather to share knowledge and techniques. They support each other’s additional artistic passions, such as graffiti art, leather carving, pin-striping, motorcycle building, wood turning, and fly fishing.
Eric now makes his home in Mora, New Mexico and in addition to maintaining his zeal for tattooing, carves wood and engraves. Most recently, he has begun engraving tattoo machines and firearms. Eric is proud of the continued communal nature and spirit of sharing that pervades Inksmith© & Rogers™.
