The Sacramento Area Has Enjoyed the Backdoor's Unique Brand of Tattooing For Over 30 Years!

General Info
Backdoor studio is a small, unassuming tattoo shop, built on a solid reputation of quality, care and experience. The Sacramento area has enjoyed the Backdoor's unique brand of tattooing for over 30 years. Owner, PJ English, has been an artist since he was old enough to hold a pencil. PJ has been putting his art on skin since the early 70's.

Regular Hours

PJ began his career as an apprentice under "Little" Dave Spellman at the Long Beach Pike. He helped open Santa Ana Tattoo, in Southern California circa 1975, eventually becoming the owner. It was here that he honed his skills to become one of the best in SoCal at the time. After several years, he sought a change of scenery. So he packed up his machines, inks and imagination, and moved North to Sacramento. In 1985 he opened BackDoor Studio and began a tradition of quality and commitment to the art or tattoo. Since that time he has had the pleasure of working with and training some of the best tattoo artists in the business.

PJ is a 10 STAR artist in my book!

PJ did our engagement star tattoos in 1994! My husband, Jerry is a Healer and also wanted the Native American symbolic feather and PJ did it freehand! It still looks great today! We are still excited to show people our Wedding Stars! They are very special to us and it was wonderful to watch an artist at work!



Top of the Line Service

PJ has been putting ink on me for over 25 years, and I am a loyal client. His staff uses the best equiptment and practices the highest standard of cleanliness. The artwork that comes out of the Back Door Studio is second to none.

Thanks for all, Rhonda



Back Door Studio

I met PJ in 2000 and had my first tattoo of a darling little red heart on my

shoulder blade put on that same year.

In 2002, I had an adorable free form butterfly put on my left ankle.

It's colors are awesome. I had not a bit of problem with either tattoo.

The colors are beautiful and I've had no fading at all.

What I like best about the Back Door Studio is it is prestinely clean and


PJ is the best. When you are at the Back Door Studio you are treated like

family and with dignity.

I've been going to PJ since 1992; my wife has since 1991. I brought in my own art the first time I went and I couldn't believe how he took it and just made it come alive on my skin. I've been to numerous tattoo shows and compaired his work to other artists world wide; he does some of the best floral work I've ever seen. His understanding of different skin types and use of color is really quite amazing. My mother-in-law has been to him and many of my friends and they continue to refer their friends to him. What greater compliment could be paid to an artist than to carry his work on your body for life and feel comfortable and confident enough to recommend the same to your friends and family. He has the experience, knowledge and talent second to none in the greater Sacramento area.




I have been a customer of the Backdoor Studio for many years. Every time I go there I am treated respectfully and the staff take the time to work with me on my design. The Artists are very talented and want your experience to be a positive one. I would recommend the Backdoor Studio to anyone looking to get a tattoo.
