Local tattoo store opens at new location

GREENVILLE — David Dancy is certainly excited about the new location for his tattoo and piercing parlor, Divers Dungeon, which reopened Saturday a few doors east of its former location at the base of the Town House Apartments on Lee Street downtown.

The new shop is a little larger and a little better organized than the previous site, which Dancy said will make things easier not only for him, but for his clients.

“It is more open,” Dancy said. “My other shop was kind of cut up and had some closed rooms. This is better for business. I wanted to set things up a little bit different this time, just make it nice.”

But the real excitement is still to come, as Dancy and the Divers Dungeon are scheduled to be featured on a nationwide cable television program.

Dancy said he was approached earlier this year by representatives of The Learning Channel, which airs a popular tattoo-themed reality program called “Miami Ink”, focusing on Florida-based artists and their clientele.

“In this upcoming season on ‘Miami Ink’, every other week they are going to do a 15-minute segment on small town tattoo shops,” Dancy said. “I was chosen to be on the show, so I figured it would be just as good a time as any to open up something new and get ready for that.”

Dancy has been a tattoo artist for 23 years, including the past five in Greenville. He said some of his customers may also get a chance to appear on the program.

“They will be here on June 16 and they will be here for three weeks,” Dancy said of the schedule for the shooting of the episode during which he will be featured. But, if someone were already considering getting a tattoo and wanted to memorialize the event on cable television, they might want to plan well ahead of the filming schedule.
