Bio / Contact
In 2014 Jon left his Graphic design career in Manhattan to focus his artistic efforts into tattooing. 3 years later he was approached to become partners in a what would become East End Tattoo.
Launching in 2017, East End Tattoo quickly became the staple tattoo shop of Patchogue. With the heavy traffic and fully staffed shop, Jon was able to hone-in on his blackwork style. Inspired by Gustave Dore illustrations since his childhood, Jon began introducing stippling and cross-hatching into his tattoo flash – this paired with heavy contrast and deep blacks – become the winning formula for all future art to come.
In 2019 East End Tattoo of Babylon opened as a private studio expanding the East End Tattoo footprint across Suffolk counties south shore. After a lengthy Covid-19 mandatory shut-down – Jon bought out his business partner becoming the sole owner of the East End Tattoo Brand.
East End Tattoo of Shirley would launch in 2021 and a larger Patchogue location was built and replaced the original flagship Patchogue location in early 2022.
Jon’s main focus these days is the success of the East End Tattoo brand – with limited time to tattoo – Jon will often draw flash sheets and take appointments around his specific flash – so be sure to follow him on Instagram and turn on posting notifications, because his flash goes very quickly when released.
