Studio Manager:

Dan Carroll created his first tattoo at age eleven, with a needle, thread, and a bottle of india ink. Dan continued to practice tattooing by this method until age seventeen when he learned how to make a homemade tattoo machine.

At nineteen, Dan entered Vesper George School of Art in Boston, MA, which he attended for three years, majoring in fine art. Dan finished art school in 1972, spent the next twenty years or so tattooing underground, then began tattooing in a studio in 1994.

With his background in fine art, Dan is a master at portrait work, both black and gray and color. His natural style is representational and photo realistic, but is comfortable with all styles. Dan continues to grow as an artist, always striving total perfection. He finds fulfillment in creating a perfect tattoo for each client, and complete satisfaction from practicing his art.
