Visions is a full-service tattoo and piercing studio in an art gallery setting, housing incredible, visionary artists and piercers under one vintage Victorian roof. We believe in working together with clients to create innovative and one of a kind pieces, ensuring that everyone who walks in the door is provided with an experience unrivaled in this industry.
In 2004, Canman & Angela Cannistraro opened Visions Tattoo, Piercing and Art Gallery to combine their passions for the arts and to make a space with a focus on creativity.
What we’re offering is much more personal than that. We want you to feel at home in our studio. In order to ensure that you are comfortable and confident in your decisions along the way, we work collaboratively to ensure that the artwork or piercing is representative of you and your vision for your body. We want you to leave here feeling more complete than when you walked in. We work passionately to uphold this standard.
When Angela is not piercing, she is stretching her creative wings with photography or obsessing over her favorite 80’s hair metal bands.
When Canman is not tattooing, you can find him painting in a variety of mediums or catching a tasty wave down the trails while meandering through the woods grooving to the soundtrack in his head.

Safety and professionalism are our number one priority from the moment you walk into our studio. Each Visions artist is licensed with the Medway Health Department and certified in CPR, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens. All of our piercers are current members of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP).
At Visions, we take pride in our high standards of aseptic techniques and work closely with the Medway Health Department, ensuring that our procedures are in compliance with the most up to date guidelines.
Our Tattoo Safety Measures
We provide new needles for every client and ensure the safety of our customers and staff by following stringent protocols to avoid cross contamination. Our artists use single use disposable ink holders, tubes, and razors, along with barriers on everything that is touched during the tattoo process.
Our Piercing Safety Measures
All piercing supplies and needles are autoclaved, single use and disposed of immediately following the piercing procedure. All tools are disinfected, run through an ultrasonic, individually packaged and finally run through the autoclave.
We also have a Statim 2000 G4, which is a high-speed cassette autoclave, allowing our piercers to sterilize any equipment and jewelry right before each client being pierced! Our clients can feel confident each piercing performed is with sterile implements. After each sterilization cycle and prior to the piercing, our piercers will show the client their own pre-initialed sterilization integrator strip. This provides evidence that all implements and jewelry have been properly sterilized. In addition, all of our autoclaves are spore tested weekly instead of the monthly recommendation to ensure all of our equipment is operating at optimal performance!
