Let me ask you a question. Where can someone go to get a in-depth, meaningful, amazingly precise, eternal tattoo from a multiple award winning artist who also has an award winning personality and won't make you feel like you just walked into chill chest? Give up?
MIND BOMB TATTOO and PIERCING THAT'S WHERE!
Owner/artist Joshua Wedzina has an outlook on tattooing that more "artists" should have. It should be creative, unique, customer approved, and ENJOYABLE.
A true visionary to this industry, Joshua is raising the bar to new heights. His revolutionary tattoo machine designs (website coming soon) will introduce people to new metals, new weights, better feel and a design process that rivals NASA. He has also been working on a new line of pigments that will absolutely blow your mind. Joshua is paving the way for a whole new twist on common tattoo ideals.
You want awards? I'll show you some awards. How about Oregon Ink 2009 Best Back Black and Grey, Oregon Ink 2009 Best Original 2nd Place, Ink Travelers tattoo & Piercing Convention 2009 Best of Black and Grey Back, Inkin' Lincoln Tattoo Jamboree 2000 Women's Medium 3rd Place, Inkin' Lincoln tattoo Jamboree 2000 Men's Black and Grey 1st Place. I would keep going but you get the idea. All this from an artist who rarely attends conventions, just imagine if he did!
Joshua was kind enough to take time out from his busy and creative schedule to talk with me a bit and let me pick his synapses.
A 15 year veteran to the industry, Joshua has been featured in many magazines, the latest of which being Ink Junkies Magazine, 2009, and pulls inspiration from some of the greats. Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mark Ryden and Himself. The reason behind his self motivation? Joshua explained, "If you're not inspired to do your own thing, then what's the point?" Well put.
His love of art extends from the epidermis and explodes onto unsuspecting canvases as well. His use of color and depth are bold and his eye see's things others do not. PASSION. This man LOVES his creations and not only can you see it when gazing at his work, but you can FEEL it.
Joshua Wedzine will be a name remembered for a very long time and I highly recommend keeping an eye on his innovative ideas. From coast to coast he has made a name for himself and continues to beautify this world piece by piece.
Next time you're in Portland Oregon stop By Mind Bomb Tattoo and say hello. You will not be disappointed.
