Dragonland Tattoo was founded by Shahn Anderson in 1994. With over 25 years of tattooing experience, Shahn has earned the reputation of having one of America's elite studios as well as having one of the most artistically creative staffs.
With over a decade of convention tours, traveling abroad and a solid reputation for one-of-a-kind custom tattooing, Shahn decided to locate the shop in Hopkins, Minnesota. Being a Minnesota native, Shahn realized the good nature and loyalty his midwest clients carried. Wanting to run a very elite shop where people would travel to get tattooed and not have to deal with a lot of the big city walk-in traffic. Hopkins only seemed natural as a place to make his artistic niche.
Here at Dragonland Tattoo Shahn hand picked his staff to meet any needs a customer might have. Whether the person was thinking of small traditional swallows or a full-scaled Japanese body suit, Shahn wanted to make sure every artistic aspect had been covered.
Currently Shahn's staff consists of Himself, Dan Dittmer, Thaddeus Paskey, Stephanie Schill, Damein Voss Friesz, and Kelli Clausen. Between these six artists the artistic spectrum at Dragonland Tattoo has been filled, resulting in each artist being well versed in both their artistic skills and technical skills.
