"York PA's Premier TATTOO STUDIO"
Ryan is a lifelong artist. During high school he was a member of the Art Honor Society , while taking weekend art classes at the local art college, and was invited to study at The Governor's School for the Arts during the summer of his Junior year. He received a Bachelor's Degree in The Fine Arts from The Pennsylvania College of Art and Design where he graduated at the top of his class majoring in Illustration.
For the next 2 years Ryan worked in Pennsylvania and Florida as a freelance artist creating murals, privately commissioned paintings, t-shirt and logo designs, package design, cd covers and a number of other various projects. He then took an in-house job heading up the Art Department of an import company out of Baltimore.
It was at this point that he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a Tattoo Artist. In 2006 Ryan started tattooing in a local York shop. Shortly thereafter he opened his own tattoo parlor, Vivid Skin Tattoo Studio. He ran VST by himself for the first year and has steadily brought in local talent in order to make Vivid Skin Tattoo "York PA's Premier Tattoo Studio".
Ryan is a diverse tattoo artist working with many styles of the art. Portrait, black and gray, american traditional, asian traditional, neo traditional, pinup, biomechanical, and stylized realism to name a few. He enjoys creating custom tattoo designs. His favorite free time activities are writing and recording music and creating abstract paintings.
"Our goal at Vivid Skin Tattoo Studio is to create mind blowing tattoos while providing a professional and clean environment. Thank you to all of our clients for your years of patronage and support. Like surgery, there is no 'B' game, we bring our 'A' game every day"
