    Ol’ Red Beard is a ginger hammer.

Established in 2006.

Owner Jedidia Reid began his tattoo career in Corpus Christi, TX in 1999 after working for several years as a piercer at Forever Art Tattoo. In seeking personal deliverance he moved here to San Antonio in 2003 and began working at Dandyland Tattoo. When Jedidia decided to be a shop owner, he tried to buy several tattoo studios which were in disrepair. After attempts fell through, the perfect spot came up for lease, which had previously been a tattoo/piercing shop named Backbone for 12 years. He officially opened Element Tattoo in May 2006 after several months of renovation. It was a small shop at the time that housed 4 tattooers. Over the next year the shop blew up and doubled in size. In the summer of 2008 Element Tattoo had an electrical failure and caught fire in the night. It was a long hard road to rise out of the damage the flames had left. The Element crew pulled together and succeeded. In the manner of perseverance over failure, we hope to be here for many more years.


Great artwork, Austin Gervais did an incredible job on my wife and my tattoo's. Takes time to get the work done correctly (no BS), "Go big, or go home!"

I loved Element! I did at walk in when I went and they were very friendly, they got me hooked up with an artist right away plus they were doing HALF OFF all Sailor Jerry tattoos which is an AMAZING deal! My artist was Rick, I got a tattoo on my arm that's basically a quarter-sleeve and it only took him 2.5 hours with color and everything. He made sure that I was comfortable the whole time and he did an awesome job! This is the kind of tattoo that everyone is jealous of. I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone, it was one of the best I've seen and extremely organized and clean. They seem to specialize in traditional tattoos also and I don't find a lot of shops with the exact style I like but this is it!

My Dad and I got matching tattoos that involved heavy line work, and Tyson did a kick ass job on both. We were walk ins, and for him to be able to do both right away was phenomenal. You can tell these artists are the real deal. I would highly recommend.

My son and I spent about 6 1/2 hours in the studio last week getting ink together. Very professional. Very clean. Very capable artists. His was a new one and mine was a cover up. Very happy.

Best shop and best tattoo artists in town. My wife and I have been going to Element for years and get our work done by Jedi. I have sent many friends and family members there all of which were extremely satisfied. We have people stop us all the time to ask where we got our work done. We both spent hours in that shop so I've seen first hand the work as it is being done by everyone. Everything is solid, the artists are more than qualified, the shop is very clean, they can all do a variety of styles and each have their own specialty. You can go somewhere else but you'll most likely end up at Element asking for a coverup... they are very good at those too - Blake Hornsby

We are open 7 days a week from 12-9 pm.  We accept walk-in’s daily on a first come first serve basis as time allows.

We have a shop minimum of $60.  Bigger tattoos are priced hourly according to the artist you are interested in.

When it comes to tattoos, you get what you pay for.  PERIOD.

If you have something in mind, just come talk to us.

When you come into the shop in person, it is easier to communicate effectively about your ideas.

Can I use some kind of numbing cream?

Please don’t do this, it is really not recommended.

Does it hurt?

Tattoos are painful.  Everyone has a different threshold for pain.  Different parts of the body vary in sensitivity.  However, it is nothing you can’t handle.  Mind over matter.
