​​With over two decade’s worth of history under our belt, Chameleon Ink (formerly Camden Chameleon) was established in 1996. During the 90s, the shop operated right out of a Fairhaven District train car. The studio started the new millennium with a new location in Downtown Bellingham (our present location). In 2008, the current owners took over the business and have continued down the path of creative perfection, ensuring the highest standard of work for Chameleon’s clientele.

Penelope (the Great and Powerful, a.k.a. the chick who runs the show) began her tattoo apprenticeship at Camden Chameleon back in 1996 (when the shop still operated out of one cramped train car).

After her ink initiation, Penelope continued honing her artistic skills at local shops. Since 1999, she has successfully operated her very own studio, Wicked Witch Tattoo in Birch Bay and has literally seen and done it all. Today, she keeps us Chameleon Ink connoisseurs in line, all while further establishing our reputation as the most talented group of tattoo and piercing artists in the region.
