Adam Roof is a tattoo artist in Tampa, FL who specializes in American Traditional tattoos as well as Japanese ink in addition to a wide range of Fine Line or Black & Grey styles. His work can be seen on both new clients and those looking to update their looks with fresh tattoos of his craftsmanship!
American Traditional is characterized by its clean black outlines, vibrant colors and minimal shading. These are fundamental to the traditional tattoo style which makes it one of the most iconic styles around! The boldness in these tattoos combined with their complexity make them perfect for those who want something memorable yet not overbearing at once glance.
The Japanese tattoo style is an art form that has been around for a very long time. Japanese tattoos are often a mix of black-and-gray, but some come in color. One thing constant about Japanese tattoos is the subject matter which is rooted deeply within Japanese culture.
Fine Line style's name implies everything. It is sweet and simple, without any unnecessary frills or embellishments to distract from the clean lines of your tattoo design. This style was originally a variation of Black & Grey which was first seen in prisons in America, mainly on the west coast, starting back in the 1970’s and since gained popularity; Fine Line styles can work beautifully no matter where they're featured!
With black and grey tattoos, black ink is used in a variety of tones and shades with a varying mix of needle groupings to create your own unique design. The history behind this popular tattooing technique started in prisons in the 1970s or 1980s —giving rise to a new type of art form that's still going strong today!
How much does it cost to get tattooed?
My hourly rate is $200 an hour unless you want a smaller tattoo, for that which I can give you a set price on. I require a $100 deposit to set up your appointment. The deposit is then deducted from the price of the tattoo, after your appointment.
Adam was great from the start by listening to what I wanted and taking what I envisioned and going beyond what I had in mind with his own unique artistic eye.He took the time to break down his idea and educated me on the proper colors that would last and give life to the piece. I definitely recommend anyone looking for a quality tattoo to check him out
Adam did my first tattoo and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, such an amazing experience and environment to get my first tattoo in and I’m definitely addicted now lol. Thank you Adam, you are a true artist💪🙏
Adam did a matching half sleeve for myself and my husband and they are phenomenal! I wish I could post a pic. We get asked ALL the time who did our work. We have sent numerous people to Adam even since his moving to Tampa. I need more business cards to give out....
