About Us and our Tattoo & Body Piercings

The original location of Dead RockStar Tattoos and Piercings was at 4501 15th Ave. South in Fargo, Nd.
We spent almost 15 years in this space before moving to 3401 Interstate Blvd. in Fargo, ND.

Where & When It All Began...

2002 - Dead RockStar opened its doors on May 6th, at the original location on 45th Street in Fargo (Scheels wasn't built yet!).  The name 'Dead RockStar' popped up at a family dinner one night. We felt it was a good culmination of the various ways and reasons why music has always been a big part of our family. 

We originally sold alternative clothing, accessories, shoes and boots and body jewelry. We had one room for body piercing and one room for tattooing.

2004 - We began offering Body Branding/Scarification as a Body Art Service

We were the first and only shop in North Dakota to offer this service! 

If we brought back Body Branding as a service, would you get one? 

2005 - Our clothing, shoes & boots were slowly phased out as we made more room to accommodate the needs of our growing clientele

2006 - Our body piercers attended their first of many Association of Professional Piercers (APP) Conference as a means to continue their education and knowledge of Body Piercing and its related fields.

2007 - The first North Dakota shop with piercer that is a member of the 

Association of Professional Piercers on staff!


In 2012, to celebrate 10 years in business, Dead RockStar updated there logo and added a few more tattoo artists and body piercers.

Spreading Our Wings...

2008 - We opened a 2nd location in Bismarck, ND

that was strictly tattooing & body piercing

2010 - We sold our Bismarck shop and it became 'Tailwind Tattoo'

leaving the Fargo location as the one and only Dead RockStar.

2012 - We celebrated 10 years of being in business and gave our old logo a new look!

2013 - Our Body Piercer, Chuck, contributed his knowledge of 

'Cleaning, Disinfection, & Sterilization' to the 2013 edition of the 

 "Association of Professional Piercers" Procedure Manual www.safepiercing.org
