Vern has been
professionally tattooing for almost two decades in northern California. An artist most of
his life, he collects ethnic art including pieces from Africa, Japan, New Guinea,
Indonesia, and Thailand. In addition to tattooing, Vern is an
accomplished sketch artist, painter and he enjoys making sterling
silver jewelry - including pieces for many famous people including Bon Jovi!
As one of Sacramento's
premier tattoo artists, Vern specializes in custom tattoo work
including original drawings, portraits, cover ups, renewing old tats.
While his work is influenced by Asian cultures having spent six years
in Asia, he is an accomplished tattoo artist and can create just about
any tattoo design you might be able to imagine. You can view
Vern's portfolio of Tattoo works.
Vern can create custom
artwork (called FLASH) for you, is adept at copying or modifying
existing designs and is an expert at cover-ups and redoing bad
tattoos. If you have a tattoo that isn't what it should be (or
was suppose to be) or have a tattoo that needs some new color and
life, Vern's adept at bringing it old tats to life! Check out
his pages of Cover Ups and Redo
In addition to being a
tattoo enthusiast and artist, Vern is a SCUBA diver, practices Martial
arts and is a practicing Buddhist. Some of his favorite
possessions are his Harley Davidson, his Rat Rod, vintage pickup and
his Scion XB which he says is too much fun. His favorite
companion is (was) his German Shepard dog (now gone). Now Vern
has a blind dog! :)
Vern has several
tattoos including portraits of both of his parents, several pinup
girls and is currently experimenting with tattooing himself!
