“At the very least, Tattoos are powerful statements of individuality”. -- Jon Osiris
Osiris has been studying the meeting of art and craft, since his youth, and tattooing since 2007. His process adorns and transforms the bodies of his clients according to their desires using his unique vision and skill.
His work is no ordinary tattoo. Jon brings more to the table than just aesthetics; he bridges the mundane with the mystical, creating inspired works that honor the intention of the bearer. As a student & teacher of both visual language and skilled craft, the tools in Osiris’ employ can lead to experiences that engage a process that connect us to the very root of the human experience.
“For nearly 30 years, Tattooing has presented a unique opportunity for me to cultivate myself as an individual. I am honored and humbled by those who continue to receive work from me and I strive to continue to learn and grow daily on this profound path.”
Osiris is also a journeyman jeweler and metal-smith of some 20 years. He currently takes commissions for the creation of jewelry pieces, sacred objects, original art, graphics for clothing, as well as and paintings. His work and processes are ever-evolving.
