We moved!

Over the past 24 years, the Laughing Buddha name has become synonymous with high-end body art delivered in the most modern and aseptic environment possible.

In order to continue delivering this cutting-edge luxury experience, we relocated to a brand new space at 1121 E Union St.

This move will allow us to continue to advance our services, and elevate our space to being one of the leading body art studios in North America.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in the new studio.

You. Adorned.

Whether it’s a piercing or a tattoo, safety & care are our prime concerns.

You’ll notice it in the initial consultation. You’ll feel it when you’re in our chairs or on our tables. You’ll love our selection of unique and beautiful jewelry, showcased both online and in the studio.
