About Cory Claussen

People deserve fine art in every form


Our goal is to maximize the experience of tattoos and paintings by skillfully designing work that embraces principles built on visual fine arts. We Embrace the opportunity of transcending ideas into visually strong art forms diversified with meaning and pride.


Cory has been tattooing since 2010.  He worked through two apprenticeships during his first two years.  He also deployed to Afghanistan with the South Dakota Army National Guard.  During his military deployment, Cory was inspected and approved to tattoo in a combat zone.  After returning home he finished his Associates of Arts and Science.  To better himself, he found the best artist he could and started another apprenticeship.  After working with various artists in multiple shops, he and his wife opened Red Arbor L.L.C. at 6232 S. Pinnacle Pl. Suite 204 in Sioux Falls, SD.  Cory specializes in portrait tattoos, 3d tattoos, and illustrative tattoos with vivid colors.  He also loves traditional tattoos, neotraditional tattoos, and beginning to get into abstract tattoos.

“I donate 20% of what is earned from commissioned pet paintings to non profit animal welfare agencies.  By default that charitable amount goes to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society. When another animal welfare agency refers my artistic services, the referring agency is the beneficiary - as my intent is to offer unbiased financial support to the numerous organizations that work for the same cause.”


Red Arbor LLC opened in 2014 and continues in sharing visual enjoyment.
