John is an American Traditional tattoo artist, and a native of St. Paul, MN. He began drawing at a very early age and transitioned into painting in his early teens, eventually leading to the pursuit of tattooing a few years later. Originally entering the tattoo world in 2001 while still in high school, he took a break to pursue a career in music, rejoining the trade in 2011 and has been working as a full-time tattooer ever since. As an artist, John was inspired by the tattoo legends of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and strives to carry on the imagery and traditions of classic American tattooing. His unique merger of both vintage and modern elements allow him to put his own twist on the style.
