As many of you know, after years of prayer, Drew & I discovered we were expecting last summer. The day before our fourth anniversary to be exact! The plan was always for me to continue working up until my due date then take a couple of months off to get used to being a Mommy. Well. This baby had other plans from about week 10 on... I was SO sick. Like, throwing up dozens of times a day, in & out of the hospital for IV fluids, anti-nausea medication, the whole nine yards. THE. ENTIRE. TIME. Finally, my blood pressure got high enough that it was safer for baby & I to go through with an induction 2.5 weeks early. Twenty-two hours later we welcomed Isabella Mae Resch into the world at just over 7lbs with a head full of hair & cheeks for days. Love. We were instantly smitten with this litte firecracker. Little did we know I would be returning to the hospital less than a week later. I was readmitted for a scary little condition called HELLP Syndrome. Thankfully, after 12 hours on a magnesium drip & two more nights inpatient I was sent home with meds to regulate my BP and instructions to enjoy my new baby. Over the course of a few weeks we realized she was in a whole lot of discomfort about 20 hours a day that seemed to coincide with her eating. After some very persistent badgering of doctors we were finally able to get to the bottom of it. Bella had a really nasty insensitivity to the proteins in both milk and soy. Our poor baby was literally in constant pain until we got her detoxed from any traces of dairy or soy & transitioned to a crazy expensive but utterly amazing elemental formula. Throw in severe reflux & it became crystal clear that this mama wasn't returning to a bustling tattoo studio anytime in the near future. I've spent the last few months essentially being a bystander while my ever-impressive husband took on every element of my job in additon to his. This man. Let me tell you... He has worked his butt off! He also now has a very heartfelt sense of gratitude for what I do around here! Seriously, he's done an amazing job keeping this business running smoothly all by his lonesome so that I could focus on taking care of our daughter without the distracton of "work". It's been rough but I'm so happy to finally say she's pretty much all better! She seems to have outgrown the insensitivities as well as the reflux! No more special formula! No more meds! No more visits to specialist's numerous times a week! It's amazing, Now that she's doing so well, we're much more comfortable with me dedicating more of my time to this litte studio I hold so dear. Although I'll be working from home a whole lot more, I'll be working. I've missed all of you so much! So, be kind as we ease back into being a team versus a one-man show. There will undoubtedly be kinks to work out along the way but I'm hopeful we'll find a new groove that's even better than before! By the way, you may wanna get used to this face...

Iron Rose Tattoos is a custom tattoo studio located in sunny (for the most part!) Florida. We pride ourselves on skill, health & safety, customer service and knowledge of our craft in a setting very much unlike the traditional “tattoo parlor”. You won’t see a bunch of flash on the walls. There is zero offensive literature on our book shelves. Dirty jokes and profane language are not common place. Our shop was built on relationships. We’re a family here & extend that same level of value to our customers. Each tattoo is designed specifically for that client. We take our time to make sure that what you see in your mind is what winds up on your skin. Iron Rose Tattoos is 100% in compliance with all county & state regulations. We’re committed to upholding our reputation of excellence through awesome tattoo art and happy patrons.
We specialize in all types of tattooing, including…
Color Portraits, American Traditional Tattoos, Black and Gray Tattoos, Photo Realism Tattoos, Color Bomb Tattoos, Traditional Japanese Tattoos, Watercolor Tattoos, New Skool Tattoos, Fine Line Tattoos and so much more!
We obviously have personal preferences when it comes to specific styles of tattooing, but are experienced and eager to accommodate any reasonable client request. We do, however, reserve the right to refuse any tattoo. If a tattoo is racially motivated, gang related, or satanic in nature, it WILL NOT be done by Iron Rose Tattoos. Since we are greatly influenced by our Christian faith, we also refrain from doing any tattoo that directly opposes biblical teaching.
We now operate exclusively by appointment only and are typically booked anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months out. Consultations are free and can be scheduled via phone, e-mail or in person throughout the week.
We are a Board of Health certified studio and meet all local and state requirements at all times. Licenses for not only the shop itself, but each individual artist are available for client review at all times. All needles are single use and will be opened in front of you.
We truly do love what we do here! Thanks for checking out our site & hopefully we’ll get to collaborate on some one of a kind artwork soon!
