John D’Addario - Inkport Tattoo
John D’Addario is an American tattoo artist currently based in Moscow, Russia. He's been moving back and forth from Latin America, North America, Europe, and Asia in search of self-improvement and development.
His love for art originated at a rather early age. The career as an artist began 16 years ago when he started with a traditional style and realism, which he didn’t like very much, but he believes it gave him a good base and helped him acquire the right knowledge. Tattooing has always been for him and his family a peculiar way of life, and, of course, the type of job that gave him the opportunity to stay abroad.
To date, he has formed his own style. It’s a kind of a mixture, sketchy and abstract, colorful but strong, realistic but joyful and fresh. John believes that tattooing connects people of the past and modern generations. He's also very attached to indigenous cultures and wears marks of his knowledge acquired from such cultures.
Experimenting with styles through the years have created a unique combination of art worthy to wear on the skin. John has been researching the past, present, and future lives, such a complex topic that made him step out of the comfort zone to find self-transformation through the tattooed Circle Of Life, one of his latest projects that goes beyong just tattooing.
nspired by the tropical and wild America, the complexity of Europe, and the lively art found in Russia, John D'Addario from Inkport Tattoo has the formula of beauty and simplicity.
