About Alien & Co. Tattooing

Creating Impossible Tattoo Arts

Our chief artist and owner, Steve “Alien” Butterfield, carries a legacy in the tattoo world that has spanned over four decades. Born an artist, his journey began at the young age of twelve, pin-striping and lettering race cars, and creating iconic Ed Roth ‘Rat Fink’ designs.

He served as a Radar Radio Operations Specialist in the United States Navy, receiving his first tattoo in 1972, which sparked his profound interest in tattooing. With the guidance of industry stalwarts like Doc Webb, Lyle Tuttle, Ed Hardy, and Don Nolan, he honed his craft in San Diego before setting up his first tattoo studio in 1980 in Canton, South Dakota.
