“Springfield’s very close-minded and very religious,” shop owner Kelsey tells the camera in the trailer. “Everyone in Springfield has kids already — they were having kids before they were out of high school. Nobody tell anybody in Springfield I said that!”

“Ink Ink is the only all-female tattoo shop in the Midwest,” she continues. “People travel from everywhere to get tattooed by us.… We get clients of all kinds. We get mothers and daughters, country boys, grandmas, farmers, punks, even the mayor. And maybe someday, Brad Pitt!”

Kelsey points out that her colleagues’ bonds are a big reason for the shop’s success. “The girls and I have known each other since we were teenagers,” she says. “We do everything together. I’ve had customers tell us that 90 percent of coming to Ink Ink is watching us have fun with each other.”
