Our Creative Team
Each one of our artists brings his or her own styles and experiences to the studio. What unites them is a passion for body art and years of experience in this form of expression. Here's a closer look at some of our tattoo artists:

Justin was born and raised in northern New Jersey. Ever since he could first hold a pencil he has been drawing. His passion for art has only grown over the years, leading him to explore other forms of work such as illustration, photography, sculpture, and his personal favorite, painting. Justin attended Montclair State University where he graduated with a b.f.a. for studio art with a concentration in oil painting. His influences pull from sources ranging from surrealist artists, to comic books, movies, video games, and other genres of pop-culture. While studying fine art Justin also developed a strong interest in tattoo culture and has finally had the opportunity to enter the industry as an apprentice at Clockwork Tattoo.
