www.gregbartz.com I have been obsessed with body art ever since I got my first tattoo. A mostly self-taught tattooer I have been tattooing since 2005. I love all styles of tattooing but have been really loving realism lately. I have been an artist as long as I can remember and got a graphic design degree in 2004 from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. My art is greatly influenced by the world around me and the artists I work with. As well as such artists as Drew Struzan Mark Ryden, A. Mucha, Salem.

Its been really hot and it kills my energy so I have been working on other things to beat the heat. I started a sketch book a few weeks ago in a effort to do more drawing not just to tattoo. Heres a few pages to show ya some of it. I have been working at my first shot at making t-shirts and clothing. I am getting into the whole process of making them. Look for one soon

Glad to be home from our little trip to Hollywood. Me and my buddy Brent Hefner went up there to work the Tattoo Hollywood Convention. Got to stop and visit with my buddy Julian Zeff at his shop all for one and hit up the Bob Roberts show at Canvas LA. Bummed I didnt get any pictures of the art but there was plenty of great art there. Friday we managed to make it to the convention and get started. Got to meet a bunch of cool artists and do a couple of cool tattoos. Good time but glad to be home again.

I went to the zoo other day day and it reminded me of my strange love for tigers. I have one tattooed on me by friend Craig Driscoll and wanted to share a painting of one I have been working on. Thers another half of a dragon of it that hopefully I will finish one day
