My name is Joe, I enjoy working on a diverse range of tattoos & art. My strengths are creating one of a kind pieces that incorporate different textures & styles. Tattooing as I see it is a creative process between the client & the artist, I love hearing your ideas & just as much having the creative freedom to express the vision.

My name is Nando, and I am an apprentice here at the Ink House. I have been creating art since I can remember, and tattooing has been my dream for a while. My goal is to specialize in Mexica/Japanese fusion, and learn as much as I can from my predecessors, and colleagues.
