About Living Proof Tattoo
My name Is Conan, I was born in Connecticut and also went to college there studying history. Art was always something I used to escape, never something I thought could shape who I am and what I love to do. I’m what you call an Autodidact, which means I am self taught.
About 10 years ago I saw tattoos that were a new style at the time: color realism. One was a color portrait of Will Ferrell actually. When I saw this it lit a fire that is burning still, I couldn’t believe a tattoo like this could even be achieved – I was on a mission.
I was never able to complete a real apprenticeship but I started spending all my energy learning this craft, and still do. With the help of my good friend Frank Luca I was able to get started. He showed me that artists must continue learning every day and rip apart everything they do – never rest on your laurels.
I believe you’re only as good as your last tattoo and I treat each client like I was tattooing a loved one. I easily become friendly with my clients since this is such a process and I’m so outgoing and love to chat. I believe in making sure I have a good dialogue and connection with all clients – those getting a sleeve are just as important as the tiny tattoos.
If I had to describe my style, I enjoy connecting the realistic with the unrealistic, organic and the nonorganic. I love black and grey as well as color. Over time, I’ve gotten to have a real connection with cover ups, as I seem to be a bit of a problem solver.
So please stop in, email, or call and remember the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask. I’m looking forward to meeting you.
