My name is Jon Mesa. I’m a tattoo artist at Sacred Tattoo in NYC but travel all over the world. I’ve been tattooing since summer of 2008, fell in love with this and have never looked back. I travel to tattoo conventions around the world throughout the year. I love to make cool stuff and was a finalist on Oxygen’s TV Show Best Ink season 1.
Former Hoboken resident and tattoo aficionado Joey Germanario is hoping to revitalize the image of the tattoo industry with a new show on Spike TV called “Tattoo Rescue.” Germanario, better known as Joey Tattoo, grew up in Hoboken on Hudson Street. Germanario’s love for the industry began at an early age, getting his first tattoo a rose with his name on it at the age of 16.”(Tattooing people) is something that I just enjoy doing,” Germanario said. “There’s nothing more rewarding than putting your artwork on someone that they’ll wear for the rest of their lives.”
Kyle Dunbar is a self-taught tattoo artist who hasn’t built his reputation on being the nice guy. He says that he worked at almost every tattoo shop in Genesee County, MI, his hometown, only to have been fired from every one of them because of his abrasive attitude. Dunbar dislikes tattoo styles with strict rules and prefers to create his own world of “badass art” where he can control gravity and twist reality to his own liking. Dunbar opened his own shop Almighty Tattoo in 2003 with his wife and has clients coming to him from all over to get inked in his signature extreme realism tattoo style.
