Jon grew up in the mean streets of Salt Lake. Believe it or not, there were a few mean streets in Salt Lake City; Ok, maybe not so mean in the 80's...
Anyway, from the age of about 15 Jon was a regular at the only tattoo shop in Salt Lake City, Utah where he learned to appreciate the art-form that was so taboo back then; especially in a state like Utah. With a drive for art early on, Jon became an accomplished artist, displaying much of his artwork uninvitedly around Salt Lake City and surrounding cities on rooftops, alleyways, and freights passing through the local train yards.
After growing-up, Jon continued his artistic career through schooling, training, hard work, and dedication. Jon has been a devoted professional artist since 1992 and has won numerous awards over the years for his illustrations and commercial art abilities. Jon has always made a living as an artist but transitioned into his long time dream of becoming a tattoo artist after tiring of the stuffy corporate environments in the commercial advertising world.
Jon is a clean, friendly, professional classically trained artist that loves his job. Since 2002, Jon has earned a reputation as an award winning tattoo artist. Consistently pleasing his clients and their referrals with the best possible tattoos while staying within each individual's budget.
Jon has gone through many artistic style changes in the last 3 decades. This has allowed Jon to remain quite flexable in his approach to tattooing, He has adapted easily to changing styles that have become popular as tattooing has exploded in popularity in the past 5-10 years. Jon hasn't focus in one particular style, instead he specializes in numerous styles. Including: Custom Freehand Polynesian Tribal and American Tribal, American Traditional and Neo-Traditional, Traditional and Modern Asian, Bright Bold New-School, Custom Lettering, Black and Grey Realism, Nature Realism and just about anything between. No tattoo is too small or too big, you name it, Jon has done it, or something similar to it and would love to work with you on your next tattoo.
