Our Story

Fade to Black Tattoo Company is a premiere custom tattoo shop just south of Downtown Fort Worth. Owners Chance Webb and Shannon Osbakken opened up shop just three years ago in the booming Near Southside/SoMa neighborhood where Shannon also owns popular bar and restaurant The Bearded Lady. In the short three years we've been open, we've won Fort Worth Weekly's "Best Of" twice for Best Tattoo Parlor. We employ only the best of the best and value every member of our wonderful team and their dedication to quality work. We have a passion not only for tattooing, but for our growing community in Near Southside. We have loved getting to meet so many amazing people and are grateful every day to provide service to such a wonderful clientele. 

Our shop takes appointments as well as walk-ins Tuesday through Saturday. Check out our artists' pages to see portfolios and find the best fit for your next custom piece.

We have events and specials every month, including themed parties and holidays, so check back on our "news" section regularly to see what we're up to!
