We are Kirk and Gretchen Peterson. We met at art school back in '93, started the company on Halloween of '94 and got hitched a little less than a year later. The first ten years was primarily airbrush work, but then Kirk got back into tattooing in '04. Nowadays, Kirk does all the amazing stuff. Gretchen does a lot of design, PR, website, and "arts and crafts." Oh, and the ever dreaded "Bookkeeping." For more about BassAckward Studios, click the "about us" link.

In addition to custom work on hard surfaces, we also do custom designs on leathers, denim, t-shirts, you name it.
