About Tattoo Betty’s

At Tattoo Betty’s, we offer a variety of flash and artwork for you to choose from, or even better, have one of our artists customize an image design that’s specifically your tattoo.

Our artists are very talented, able to give you whichever style of tattooing art you prefer as well as having a tattoo style each of their own. Do you have an old tattoo that needs new life? Or, maybe a tattoo of an old flame or of an “extreme” image that you’re sick of being reminded of everytime you see it? That’s not a problem…our artists can re-color, add-on and/or cover-up an old tattoo with skill and expertise.

A knowledge of your basic rule of body piercing, body healing, visual aesthetics and professionalism is what you can be assured to receive at Tattoo Betty’s by each piercer. Our piercers can correctly perform a vast number of ear, face and body piercings as well as help you when gauging/stretching your piercings. Our shop also offer a variety of jewelry and other merchandise.

So, please explore our pages and come visit us… we’d love to tattoo or pierce you!


Meet Our Artists


Betty & KenThis is Betty and Ken Gish, owners of Tattoo Betty’s in Jackson, California. Betty has been tattooing for 12 years, certified by the American Tattooing Institute since 2004 and also being a certified piercer as of 2004 (certification done by Mike Fenn at Body Designs in Long Island).

Betty works well with any tattooing style…loving everything about tattooing: the good, the bad and the ugly — all rolled up! Betty’s favorite style of tattooing however, is her custom work…translating the images in your head into your tattoos.



JordanI’m Jordan Graham and I’ve been tattooing since I was 16. My parents own and operate Tattoo Betty’s, and as I have always been very artistically inclined and encouraged by my parents … joining the family business was a natural progression for me.  I started my apprenticeship when I was 15 and was released to tattoo on my own at 17.  I have also added body piercing to my body art portfolio (trained and certified as of summer of 2011). I am a very critical artist, so you can expect only the best I can do from me.

I also enjoy other things in life! I currently hold a 3rd degree black belt in Tang Soo Do karate and eventually hope to open my own martial arts dojo.  I love music and am a die hard metal-head–but, I will listen to almost anything. That’s me in a nutshell, hope to ink you up soon!



MatthewI am Matthew Gish, and currently pierce at the Tattoo Bettys. I am a certified piercer, serving my apprenticeship with my mother, Betty, since July of 2012. I am also currently apprenticing as a tattoo artist, following my family in their business.

I have been interested in the tattoo and piercing business since I was 12, after receiving my first ear piercing. And now, am beginning to realize my goals as I join Tattoo Bettys as the resident piercer.

I do enjoy a few other things in life: martial arts (currently a 2nd degree black belt in Tang Soo Doo), music (I play heavy, double bass, metal, as well as classic rock), snowboarding, skate boarding. So come on in…hope to get to know you in the near future.
