A Fifth of Ink owners Bruce Yhap and Jaron Royals wanted to open a tattoo shop since they were in 11th grade. They have been close friends since high school and have been tattooing since then.

Although they had issues, such as getting a zoning permit because the tattoo parlor had to be 300 feet away from residential areas, nothing stopped these two from successfully opening their shop. On Sept. 9, Yhap and Royals opened A Fifth of Ink on 7100 Skidaway Rd, Suite 4 for the community to purchase affordable tattoos.

At 31 years old, both owners feel that they have accomplished the dream they have always wanted to accomplish.
