Route 11 Tattoo Company
“I’m a nerd, and I read a lot about stuff before I encounter it,” says Misty Whetzel, owner with husband Adam Christopher, of Route 11 Tattoo Company in Hagerstown, Maryland. The studio has been open since September 2016, and one of the first things they did was to add tattoo removal to their services.
“Having a tattoo studio was something we’ve always talked about doing, and everything fell into place. I kept seeing ads for Tatt2Away, and we thought that it would be a really cool thing to do– Adam can put the tattoos on and I can take them off,” Misty says with a laugh.
Route 11 Tattoo Company draws clients from all walks of life, including members of the local police and fire departments, and servicemen from nearby Fort Detrick Army Base. Hagerstown may be a town of just over forty thousand, but Misty says nearly everyone there has at least one tattoo.
