Joe Capobianco An American Artist.
He is an excellent artist in the field of airbrushing and tattooing.

Although, not entirely known what spurred the early man to tattoo their bodies, we know that the proof of tattoos goes back to frozen tribesmen and ancient mummies. Mankind has always seemed to be in need or love to have the tattoo art form.


Many cultures over the centuries stuck his hand tattoo techniques used for their religious and tribal beliefs. Some tribes use tattooing in Samoa and Borneo as a rite of passage for the individual to this day, in honor of all of the ceremony and instruments of their history. In Japan, a few master tattoo artists still use instruments whose beginning is nearly as old as the myths and legends of the characters and stories that they depict on the skins of their customers young and old. Both ancient styles are passed and used by some of the newer generation of tattoo artists today.

At the time tattooing moved from the ancient world to Europe and the United States, the age of electric tattooing began. Tattooing was very popular in the ranks of the army, where many a soldier, sailor or airman were marking their skins to celebrate that time in their life with a battleship, USMC badge, a hula gal, or a nautical star. While the images were perhaps not so rich in historical pictures or as personal as your family or tribal origin, the images displayed by the new-age tattooer still persistently held real historical and artistic value.

Several of these “old school” designs and styles are some of the most popular tattoo cultures of today. As the years went on, so did the nature of the customers sit in the chair of the tattooists.

Having said that, the primary objective of this paper is to take a close look and the biography of Joe Capobianco, this guy is a monster when it comes to hair brush and tattooing.

Food For Thought

The styles of tattoo art are as different and unique as the people who wear them today. And it is my believe that these styles will continue to get even more diverse and creative growth as more young and talented artists in the business. That, in addition to the imagination of our customers who continue to push our talents to create the perfect way to express themselves and their ideas.

The question many people have asked is “will tattoo the body survive the next ten years?”
