Cody was born and raised in a small town in rural Minnesota, but has lived in Washington since 2013. He’s been tattooing for the past 8 years both in Minnesota and the greater Seattle area, traveled all over the country, and chose Olympia, WA as the home for Black Gate Tattoo Studio.


Chelsea is originally from California and excited to be permanently back on the West Coast! She jumped at the chance to join the tattoo industry, first as a Studio Manager, and then as an Owner. Chelsea loves people and resolving issues so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
