Drew Harris – Founder
"Got my first tattoo at Double Diamond this past weekend. The shop is very clean, very comfortable, and Jason did a great job both on the tattoo and the easing of my nerves going into it. A couple of my buddies got a tattoo done by Jason on the same day and were both thrilled by the experience and results. I highly recommend both this shop and Jason!"− Chris
"First of all I got my first tattoo done there six years ago by drew, best experience ever for a first timer. I have brought friends and family in and they too were all very impressed. I have seen nothing but professionalism and amazing customer service. I've been to the other tattoo shops in the borough and around the area, but nowhere else keeps me coming back"− Emily
"If you are looking for amazing artwork that will look great and last a lifetime, put your trust in Double Diamond Tattoos. I did. Over the years I have acquired a number of tattoos, and the piece that Drew Harris did for me is absolutely exquisite! The color really pops and the intricate attention to detail really makes it stand out. "− Audrey
"I have now gotten work done at every shop in the borough of west chester, and beyond just being the nicest team of people, they were by far the most professional and had the nicest space/equipment. I don't want to compare artists, especially because I came in with my own illustrations anyway so I wouldn't know who was "better", but the work hanging around the store is beautiful. I had a great experience here, and felt taken care of!"− Sarita

Artist / Owner
Drew Harris puts his all into the ancient craft of tattooing. He started his tattooing career at Wizard & Co. II in West Chester, Pennsylvania. In August 2004, Drew began apprenticing under his mentor, Bill “Wizard” Paterson. Bill is known for his Black and Grey tattoos and incredible attention to detail. Drew worked under his mentor for nearly four years before deciding to pursue his own business. With help from his amazing family and friends, Drew opened Double Deez Tattoos in August 2008, located in West Chester, Pennsylvania. To better reflect each artists’ reputation, Drew changed the name of his studio to Double Diamond Tattoos in 2019. Since beginning his career, Drew’s style has changed drastically. It evolved from a New School / Cartooning approach into a style similar to that of his mentor, Black and Grey. While he takes pride being well versed in all styles, Drew now spends the majority of his time focusing on the art of Black and Grey Realism. He is always learning and building based off of experience and new ideas. Drew enjoys traveling to tattoo conventions, and has won many awards for various tattoos and styles. Drew molds his style into every completed tattoo to create a truly unique piece of art. Book a consult with Drew below
