About

My name is Jarris A. H. V. Vonzombie.
Welcome to my online portfolio!
I am an Artist, Creative Writer, and kind of a Musician too.

So, a bit about me. I started my journey in the tattoo industry as a studio owner in 2005. I began professionally tattooing and body piercing in 2008 but did not become a full-time Tattoo Artist until January 2013. I did not have a formal apprenticeship, but I learned from the artists working with me at my studios. I also learned tattoo techniques from various tattoo instructors/mentors through offered distance learning programs created by veteran artists such as Csaba Mullner, Guy Aitchison, and others known in the industry.  

 

I focus my tattooing talents and artistic skills on grayscale (monochrome pigment) and color-saturated tattoo art pieces. I specialize in unwanted tattoo Cover-Ups. My style or genre of tattooing is primary Realism with an emphasis on Portraits, Figurative, Wildlife, Still Life and Landscapes.

 

I also specialize in 3D'ish realism areola/nipple creation, consisting of pigmentation & re-pigmentation for mastectomy patients who are breast cancer survivors.

Tattoo/ Art Related Books I've Written

 "The world of company sponsorship is knocking at your door. The almost rock star and celebrity status of many tattoo artists call for companies to build collectives and teams of top artists to promote their brand and sell their products. This is a great opportunity for artists to take full advantage of what the industry has to offer. Plus being a professional full-time artist is also about self-promotion. If you don't promote yourself, who will?"
