Life, excitement, fun,& energy!  That is what her art is made of…

Jan creates with ink on skin or acrylic paints on canvas!

The subjects are always changing ~ creating pet portraits, dogs, cats, tiki gods, adding a fun twist on skylines, skulls, chapels, trees, moons, martinis with giant olives, black cats or her other crazy characters… endless ideas!

Jan A. Sullivan is the person behind the art…

*She adds that extra kick to your images and designs.

Ray Hawse

Ray Hawse – December 10 -12, 2010

Welcome to my world… I was born in Wheaton,Md. and have always had an artistic flair. My mother always found me drawing one thing or another. At 17 years old, won 1st place at a statewide art contest and subsequently won art scholarships. After trying several different professions, i decided to pursue what I love and utilize my god given talent through tattooing. Ever since, I have been respected as a talented tattoo artist. I have traveled extensively throughout the world for my inspiration. I especially have a fondness for the orient thus my inherent love and appreciation for Asian art. It gives me great pleasure and gratification to see my visions come alive through my tattoos. Even greater, is the look of appreciation and satisfaction on my client’s faces when my work is complete.

My plans for Irezumi Life are to eventually be heard of in every state for great work and complete customer satisfaction. I would like to have the name respected throughout the tattoo society. Also to have many well known artist to want and come do guest spots at our studio.

I believe that tattoos have come a long way from the beginning stages of it’s art form. Also it’s very nice to see that artist every day are progressing so much more and not being limited to the stereotypes that restricted our society before. I would like to see it to be a progressive growth more and more. One day our art will have reached everyone in the United States and other countries in one way or another.

The reason I picked Inflicting Ink tattoo studio for a guest spot is because I want to reach every part of the East Coast and experience what other artists have to offer. Also to share what knowledge i have of the industry. Not only that but I really respect the cleanliness and the way the shop is set up. I feel it would be a great experience to be around others that have the same visions and intentions in the industry as I do.
