Jason Angst

Jason Angst is a tattoo artist and painter currently working in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

“Art is all I’ve wanted and all I’ve known for a long time. From drawing covers for punk rock 45s when I was fifteen to the first time I picked up a tattoo machine when I was 18 many years ago, this journey has been eye opening. Now tattoo is my everything, and it has pushed me into the visual arts world. From Oil, watercolor, graphite, and charcoal to photo arrangements and even performance art: I’ve taken on all of it to push my tattooing further than I ever thought possible.

This is what I want. This is what I was made for. Skin, a canvas. My eyes and hands are yours if you will have them.”
