Vond Barta
Vond Barta began tattooing in 1996, being first inspired by the earlier eras of art and the high level of skill involved in the masterpieces that the world has shown us. Vond was also influenced by the likes of H.R. Giger, Boris, Frazetta, Mucha, and Alex Grey, who in his opinion is was really the one recent artist that is absolutely incredible in our time. Vond’s custom tattoos take themes of Japanese, Polynesian, Realism, Sacred Geometry among others.
