Surrounded by multiple avenues of creativity for most of his life, there’s no question that Monte was meant for his current line of work. He began playing piano at age 5, and already had an interest in drawing. It didn’t end there, as he began doing magic shows professionally from 12 years of age on up to 19 years old. Prior to his curiosity of tattooing, he also worked professionally as a graphic designer and illustrator. He now has been successfully decorating the lives of countless individuals from all over the planet and has continually been recognized for over the last decade in multiple areas of media. This includes – Books, Radio, numerous Magizines, Newspapers, and Television.

Whether his work is seen adorning the small area of the ankle or covering large sections of the human torso, Monte’s tattoos have often been described with having a painted style. His passion clearly shows in his work, and continues over into his personal life as well. When Monte isn’t tattooing, he enjoys spending the remainder of his time at home alongside his wonderful family.

Monte currently lives in Indianapolis with his wife and six children, and has been tattooing in Indiana for the past 16 years.
