Tattoo Artist & Owner

you can find me at the southside location!

Chris Pruisner has been tattooing and piercing in the Des Moines area for over 12 years. Born and raised in Des Moines, IA he attended Lincoln High School and graduated from Grandview University with a BA in Graphic Design. After graduating from college Chris worked in a variety of corporate positions in Printing and Design however slowly realized he wasn’t a perfect fit for corporate America and left that life in 2008. He took a chance, betting on himself, and became an unpaid apprentice learning the art of tattooing. His bet paid off and within two years, he purchased a building on Des Moines’s Southside and opened the first of his three Lucky Gals. In 2012 he opened his second location on the Eastside of Des Moines and most recently in 2016 a location in Ankeny. 


Chris’s hobbies include drawing, painting, collecting vintage toys and being an entrepreneur. He currently resides in Ankeny, IA with his wife of over 20 years, their two children and multiple pets.
