Dan Watkins has been tattooing for eleven years in the Stark County area. His style derives mostly from comic art in the books he read as a child. Dan admired the way the characters bright colors and dynamic poses amazingly jumped out of the page. These concepts influence his work today. Also, his other focus come from pin up artist Gil Elvgren and fantasy artist Boris Vallejo. Dan caters to all styles and projects, big or small, but really enjoys tattooing human figures.

From start to finish Dan Watkins was so much fun to work with. True professionals with amazing talent. They are accommodating, fun, caring and make you feel like your tattoo is the most important tattoo in the world, all the while, making sure you are comfortable, happy and enjoying yourself. This was my first tattoo with this shop and certainly won’t be the last.
