About the Artist
Andy, as well as being part owner of the Omega Point Tattoo, is an experienced artist, having went to UNO to study art, and having over 16 years tattooing under his belt. He specializes in Black and Grey, realism tattoos and human portraits. Where Andy does specialize in the aforementioned 2 styles he’s done an outstanding job on a lot of large scale color tattoos including a piece that has been circulating around the internet since the piece was done, the piece was inspired by artist Alex Grey and Andy loved the challenge of tattooing this very elaborate piece.
Andy, while only having 16 years of experience, has been doing the artist work for several tattoos. After leaving his initial apprenticeship when he was around 18, Andy continued to draw and design tattoo pieces for his friends and family for several years, where they would in-turn take it to another tattoo artist to have Andy’s creation tattooed on to their body. When Andy decided to get back into tattooing, he took an apprenticeship that provided a little guidance and was a little more trial by fire. Andy has sense taken that experience and morphed into a positive one being recognized at tattoo conventions for several of his pieces. Andy also gives back to the tattoo industry by providing a great apprentice program at Omega Point Tattoo that provides much needed guidance and experience.
Andy, is truly passionate about tattooing and always strives to give his clients the best work. He understands that the tattoos he is putting on someone isn’t just a piece of artwork, each one has symbolic meaning to each client. “I’ve always looked at every tattoo as having a story, and it’s my job to understand that story and design something that tells that story. Whether it’s telling it to that person, family, or anyone else that’s what makes the difference,” says Andy. “I enjoy people coming to me with a concept, over an image from the internet. My best work stems from my creativeness and story telling through my art.” When you contact Andy, depending on the details you provide he may request a consultation visit for you to come in and for him to get to know not only your idea, but you as a person. Andy is extremely busy and books several months out so if you are interested in working with Andy, we’d recommend allowing a 3-4 month span for him to get you into the chair, the finished piece is well worth the wait and Andy will be in touch with you with designs and allowing revisions up until you sit down in the chair.
If you are interested in a tattoo that is high quality Andy is your man but you may want to contact him now as he tends to book up fully on large pieces.
