History 

Liquid Courage was founded in 2000 by Devin and Johnna. While working together in a South Omaha street shop for several years, they noticed that many of their clients were requesting totally original, hand-drawn tattoos instead of simply picking designs off the wall. When they set out to open their own studio, they made this type of tattooing a priority, and opened the first (and to this day, only) all-custom tattoo studio in Omaha. We now have nearly a dozen full time artists, three piercers, our own building, and a small army of loyal clients.

Our Mission

Our goal is to provide an excellent customer experience from start to finish. We pride ourselves on working with each individual client in a collaborative way. Drawing upon our years of experience in tattooing, we will listen you your ideas, and help shape them in an effort to build you the best, most durable tattoo possible. We believe that we have an artist suited to do any kind of tattoo imaginable, and we will insist on putting your vision in the proper hands. Above all, we believe that everyone walking in our doors deserves to be treated with respect, and everyone walking out deserves to have a great tattoo.

Devin / Email

Proud co-owner of Liquid Courage Tattoo since 2000. Comics were responsible for my obsession with art from an early age. After spending my early 20s selling some art freelance, a friend suggested tattooing. A short time later i realized this was the career for me. The art, the camaraderie, and honestly the clientele brings me back everyday. The variety of this industry is beyond what i could have ever imagined!

I was born and raised in Rhode Island. After leaving the ocean state, I found myself in the Midwest and began tattooing at A-1 Tattoo in Kansas City in 2004. From there I began working at The Mercy Seat in KC and doing guest spots around the country including Omaha. Making the move to Liquid Courage was an easy one. After guest spotting for years, I loved the crew, the shop and the atmosphere.

My name is chad and I have been tattooing since 2002. I started in Omaha and then went to Wyoming. About four years ago I ended up coming home and was lucky enough to land a spot here at liquid courage. I do not have a style in which I tattoo, I only care that the client is getting a great tattoo. Tattooing is an amazing art form and I think we should leave it like we found it, full of respect and glory!

My name is Jarad Piniarski. I began apprenticing under Lee at Liquid Courage in February of 2004. I pierced at LC until the Fall of ’09 when I moved to Houston, TX. I found in Texas, a woman who was willing to put up with me. I stole her and brought her back to Omaha in August of 2012 and quickly took up my old position at LC. I’m very happy to be back around both those who are genetically tied to me, and my family at LC.

I worked at a street shop in South Omaha for about a year when Johnna and Devin informed me of their intention to open the city’s first all custom tattoo shop and invited me to work with them. We opened Liquid Courage in May of 2000, and I have worked with them there ever since. I enjoy tattooing in various styles, including Japanese and American traditional, but I try not to specialize in any one thing.

I have been tattooing since 1995, and co-owner of Liquid Courage since 2000. Being the only woman at the shop, I have developed a thick skin and a sailor’s tongue. Although those boys I work with can be shit-asses, I love them like family and continue to appreciate the art of tattooing. I will carry on tattooing until my hands can no longer hold a machine.

Jonny / Email

Jonny No Sleeves is known to stab people (on a minute level) while wearing a banana costume and singing 70s show tunes.  Since the FBI couldn’t come up with reasonable charges to press, his talents have been put to use at Sailor’s Grave.  Aside from the insanity, he really is a fantastic piercer.  If only he wasn’t tone deaf…

My name is Nick and I’m the manager here at Liquid Courage. I have worked at Courage since 2004, all the while finding my way in the world. Although taking care of a myriad of spoiled tattoo artists and body piercers can feel like a circus at times, I strive to keep a professional environment where our client’s concerns and interests are held in the highest regard.

As soon as I saw Ed Hardy’s “Tattoo Times” as a teenager, I was destined to spend my adult life in a tattoo shop.  I enjoy the bold look of classic American and Japanese tattoos, though i’ll do most anything that will stand the test of time.  When I’m not preparing for, or making tattoos, I enjoy the company of my beautiful wife Shelly and our dogs.  Thanks so much for checking out my stuff!

John / Email

My name is John Bisarek.  I have been doing art most of my life. I have been part of the Omaha tattoo community since 2009. When I'm not tattooing I can usually be found spending time with my wife and kids, painting, or playing music. I do my best to cover most styles of modern tattooing such as neo traditional, new school, traditional and realism.

Chelsea / Email

My name is Chelsea. I'm a 5'4" bipedal individual. I've lived in Omaha for 4 years, but spent most of my time before in northern Wisconsin. I've always been interested in music and spent 14 years studying vocal technique and classical theory. When I was 16 I developed a fascination with body art, particularly body piercing. Today I balance the two and am learning more about them both every day. When I'm not at the shop (and sometimes when I am) I like to read a good, thick book."

Dan (A.K.A. Bailey) / Email

At the age of 18 I became interested in tattoos, and in 1999, had the opportunity to start working at a reputable Omaha street shop.  After starting at the bottom, I was fortunate enough to apprentice under Omaha tattoo legend and third generation tattooer, Ira Handlon.  In November, 2001, I started tattooing.  I enjoy tattooing classic tattoo imagery, skulls, roses, traditional Japanese and especially tattoos that honor mothers.  Starting May 2014, I joined the Liquid Courage Crew to expand my knowledge and abilities within the field of tattooing and painting.
