JD Shadduck has been tattooing for over 30 yrs. now. He always knew he was going to be an artist and he fell in love with tattooing at too young of an age to mention! He started with his 1st award in 1996 in Phoenix,AZ at his very 1st tattoo convention! Back then he was known as Detail and his award was for Smallest piece...he's been winning awards ever since in every category! JD opened his 1st shop in 2010 in Concord, North Carolina after migrating through several states. Hence the shop name INKLANATION cause he's literally been inking the nation! This year we decided to sell our shop to a trusted employee in Kannapolis, NC and move the most beautiful place in North Carolina...Southport/Oak Island! We always say new to the area, not the industry! Browse the portfolios...Stop by and check out the shop...Meet JD and never have to worry about who is tattooing you again!
