Tattooing for me has been a goal of mine for nearly my entire life. For those who have tried to get into this business probably have found it’s not the easiest career to pursue. So with deep appreciation I’d like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me along the way.
I have been an artist as long as I can remember and what could be more rewarding to an artist than having his work forever etched into the skin of a client. I believe that my tattoo’s are a business card into the future. This is more than just a job for me it’s my passion. So each and all of my pieces receive the same attention and detail as the next.
I prefer custom work the most. Collaborating with a client and turning their ideas into reality insures each customer is getting a completely original piece of art. Black and gray, photo realism and detail are my strong points. But I also enjoy the occasional color piece too. I mostly work on a appointment only basis so please call for my availabilities.
Even as a small child growing up in Limerick, PA, Kristoffer Ziegler loved to draw. He received a B.F.A. with a concentration in drawing from Kutztown University. ” The tattoo machine is unique, but in the end ; just another tool for making art.” Kris’s influences include Paul Boothe,O.G. Abel, Toxyk, H.R.Geiger, Dali, etc…
Kris is currently at the Beneath the Skin Tattoo Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. He is also available other times upon request.
I have been into art ever since I could hold a pencil thanks to my dad. I’ve taken many art classes throughout high school and continue to take them in college. Not only do I use my artistic abilities in tattooing but I also do oil paintings, drawings, and customize cars. I take a lot of pride in my art so I will not call a tattoo finished until I am completely satisfied with the end result and as many customers know I become very picky and critical towards the end.
I enjoy complex tattoos, working with the customer to create a cool piece. I like a challenge. I have no preference in doing black and grey or color tattoos. Nothing is out of reach for my abilities. I’m a very confidant artist and love getting the opportunity to do a complex piece. I always like to see the look in my customers face when they look in the mirror and there eyes light up. I work full time at the shop so call for my availability and check out my portfolio!
Art is … My everything, the air that I breathe, the blood that pumps through my veins. Every little piece of me that makes it possible to pick up a pen or brush each day, is what I live for. Drawing and painting has come natural for me as far back as my memory goes, naively always thinking that all kids could do what I did. Through years and years of practice, technique, and restraint, I’ve turned that skill into a machine, whether it be drawing, hair styling, body piercing, or cake design! Always looking for a new way to show my creativity to the world.
I began working at Beneath The Skin in 2012. I have 6 years of piercing experience and am always ready and willing for a new and trendy idea to walk through our door. I am also apprenticing for tattooing, which has been a life-long goal of mine. I look up to all my fellow artists and hope to one day be as good as they all are. My availability is flexible, so stop by or give us a call any time!
