Embrace the Chaos

Tattoos & Piercings

A Veteran Owned Small Business

The Best in McLennan County

At Embrace The Chaos our mission is to offer a place that not only does tattoos and piercings, but a place to get a little ink therapy. All of our staff at Embrace The Chaos have all been through chaotic times life has thrown at us. So we're the perfect place to go when you need someone to listen or relate to what you're going through, while getting a tattoo in a clean and professional environment. A tattoo is forever and we take the time to make sure all artwork matches our customers personal style, unique taste, and personality.

We strive to give and to raise money for our veterans, our first responders and our public servants. Every military or first responder tattoo receives 10% off all work done at our studio.


From head to toe, & everything in between.

Matt is the best. I have multiple piercings and tried other piercers and none can compare. I always find my way coming back to him. I literally drive from Johnson County just have him do my piercings, and I am never disappointed. Super quick and efficient. Good conversation and good to look at too. Can’t wait to go back.

It was an amazing place to go to. Everybody was so upbeat in an absolutely amazing tattoo artists. My tattoo from Chad Miller was absolutely gorgeous it's one I've been wanting to get forever but never did because I wanted to make sure I had the right person tattoo it and he exceeded expectations! Looking over everyone's portfolio and actually watching them tattoo while I was there blew me away and am absolutely coming back for my next tattoos!
