Jason talks about his experience with Ink

About the speaker

For this month’s theme on Ink, CreativeMornings Pittsburgh presents award winning tattoo artist and painter, Jason Angst. In 2011, Jason co-founded Artisan, a tattoo shop and art gallery on Penn Ave in the East End neighborhood of Garfield.

Having traveled and worked around the world, Jason remains grounded in his commitment to his craft, “Art is all I’ve wanted and all I’ve known for a long time. From drawing covers for punk rock 45’s when I was fifteen to the first time I picked up a tattoo machine when I was 18. That was many years ago. Now tattoo is my everything, and it has pushed me into the visual arts world. Oil, watercolor, graphite, charcoal, to photo arrangements. I’ve taken on all of it to push my tattooing further than I 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.”
