Epic Ink is a new addition to the A&E Network lineup focusing on Area 51 Tattoo, a renowned tattoo shop in Springfield, Oregon. Forget the standard butterfly tattoos and tribal bands; the artists of Area 51 Tattoo take their craft to the next level. The Area 51 Tattoo artists focus on pop culture, sci-fi, comics, and hyper-realistic portraits. The shop is even located in the hometown of the iconic animated TV family The Simpsons.

Area 51 Tattoo boasts some of the most talented and hard-working artists in the business. Chris Jones, a Cardiff, UK native, is a movie and portraiture buff, as well as a three-time nominee for the Tattoo Industry Awards Best UK Male. Jones also holds the honor of being one of the few artists worldwide that is licensed by LucasFilms to recreate their characters in ink. The shop owner, Chris 51, is a multi-talented entrepreneur. In addition to running the shop, he is also an accomplished writer and a father. The crew is rounded out by four more talents: Heather Maranda, Jeff Wortham, Josh Boswell, and receptionist Caroline Russell.
