Hey everyone my name is Steven Cornicelli. I was born in Maryland and grew up on Long Island and moved here to Florida in early 1996. At 18 I received my first very small and I mean small scorpion tattoo after that I was hooked. I have been into the art of drawing since I can remember, mostly comic book style. I also attended SUNY Farmingdale, for Art and the Art Institute for Media Art. After that first tattoo I recieved I knew Tattooing was something I had to do but alas, in the eighties tattooing in NY was still very taboo and hush-hush. Almost ten years later after lots of trial and error I broke through because of misfortune. In 1996 my misfortune turned into fortune, I brought my portfolio to a shop out on 19 called Black Diamond and I apprenticed for the owner Ron, for about 6 months, I traced, made neeles, and cleaned toilet bowls...then I tattooed. I broke into the tattoo industry and have been tattooing ever since. I also worked for Lou's Tattoos on the corner of 4th and Gandy for 15 years as the "Milkman". I have been praticing the Tattoo Arts for 20 years. My style is versatile, realism and portrait work are fave. I hope you enjoy my portfolio and when your ready for your New Tattoo I'll be here waiting.
Hey there everyone! My name's Stefanee or for short, Stef and I come from the garden state, New Jersey. Finally deciding to uproot my life for some well needed change at the age of 26, I moved to Florida and happily found a spot here as a part of the family at FORBIDDEN IMAGES TATTOO! I'm a Tattoo Artist by day and a Video Gamer by night! I have always had a knack for the arts, ever since I was a very young child whether it be drawing, sculpting, painting; every medium seemed to come naturally to me. Yet, the art I truly found my PASSION in is the art of tattooing; everything takes practice to become great and this is where I decided to fully hone in my skills as an artist. Creating beautiful, clean pieces of art for your skin is what I love to do whether it's in color or black and gray. Modifying your body to express your inner self is a goal I've held very dear to myself as an artist since the beginning of my adventures into the world of tattoo art. Through my experience in life, I want every one of my clients to never feel repressed or held down, just let yourself be free and find who your truly are! <3 My favorite art styles to work with are the following: Japanese Anime, Comic Book/Illustrative/Cartoon Art, Neo Traditional, Black-Ink Tattoos and Script. When it comes to my work you can expect perfection simply because I wouldn't want to give you anything less than what you deserve which is the best.
Hi my name is Miguel Romo. I am originally from Ecuador, I started my Tattoo adventure at the age of 26 and ever since I have been committed and dedicated into the sacred art of Tattooing. I specialized in Black and Grey Realism, i believe I have a good eye for details, and I feel like i can bring lots of details into a black and grey work, I love doing black and grey which i find an strong connection with my graphite drawings. I am constantly striving to evolve my art, and at this point of my life, I am only interested to share with you the best of me, as a person and artist. Feel free to check my work and email me directly for a consultation. Thank you!
My name is Micaela Lydon
My artwork is inspired by the cosmos.
I am awed by the intricate patterns, colors, and geometry found in nature. In a flower, I find a microcosm of veins and textures similar to my own skin. I wish to emphasize this connection between all life through my creative process.
My tattoo practice involves a consultation that gets to the heart of the tattoo - weaving in layers of meaning and symbolism, and often drawing directly onto the body in order to achieve a natural flow. I often reference the healing properties of plants and animals, crafting amulets of protection and guidance that are unique to you.
I hope to help you express your inner universe!
