Rich Vader has been a professional tattoo artist for over 20 years. His expertise is the result of not only personal experience and training in tattooing, but also from meeting, learning and working with some of the greatest tattoo talent in the industry.
His love of tattoos began when he was young, but turned into a passion/obsession when he was 17 years old after getting his first tattoo from a tattoo shop in his home town Waukesha, Wisconsin.
He has traveled extensively and incorporates these experiences in his custom designs. While he prefers to develop custom tattoos designed specifically to the unique qualities of an individual, he is not above doing work from 'flash'. His attention to detail extends beyond his master ink-work to providing the utmost safety and hygiene procedures.
His work has been featured in some of the world's top tattoo magazines. His tattoo designs and expertise provide extraordinary results for his clients without a "rockstar" attitude. From beautiful to the bizarre; realistic to abstract, check out the ink-inspiring designs of Rich Vader.
