Sink or Swim Tattoo, located on the second floor of a commercial building at 1040 Payne Ave., North Tonawanda, is under new ownership, with a familiar face now running the operation.

Former Sink or Swim tattoo artist Keith Kuzara took ownership of the business on Oct. 1, 2015, after working at the shop for nearly four years. Kuzara is a self-taught and award-winning tattoo artist with six years of industry experience.
