A little about me...

Working as a crew leader for twenty plus years at the University of Chapel Hill in the Grounds department, Kevin Kaffenberger has always had a passion for owning his own business and his love for the art of tattoos combined, made this passion and vision become a reality. His wife of twenty-five years, Penny, and his good friend, Chris Burgess, set out on an adventure to open what is now Mad Stone Tattoo. Kevin’s intense love for art ignited his passion to begin tattooing. Kevin believes twenty years from now he is sure this studio will still be standing and be all they intended it to be. “Tattoos trends will change, but our studio will keep that same comfortable, warm and friendly setting. When I envisioned the studio, I wanted the barber shop type feel. I believe we have accomplished that.” We have an incredible group of artists that keep our clients and coming back!
