catch me on Ink Master Season 12, Tuesdays at 10PM EST on the Paramount Network!
Hey my name is PON and I've been in the tattoo business since 1999 and an artist my entire life. I have had my art work and tattoos published in several publications around the world. I have been successful in many forms of art but always return to my one true passion Tattooing. I served an extensive tattoo apprenticeship, but I attribute most of my success as a tattooer to one of my mentors Phil Luck. He taught me how to approach the craft with respect and tradition, without him I could never have accomplished all I have and have had the love for tattooing I do now.
I have been interested in tattooing since an early age. My earliest memory is drawing on my little brother with a motorized squiggly pen at the age of 10. When I was 15 years old I received my first tattoo, while vacationing in Italy. That’s when tattooing went from a fascination of mine to deciding that this was what I wanted to do.
My work is heavily influenced by traditional New York tattooing, consisting of bold outline, heavy shading and vibrant colors. Traditional tattoos are not my only passion, I truly enjoy any tattoo that challenges me to be a better artist and is fun to do. My dream is to help leave the tattoo industry better than when I got in, I have helped shape the career of many tattooers and its my hope that through them I can Leave a legacy.
