About Adam Roof
Integrity, Honor, Diligence & Respect
Tattooing to me has always been very personal or even shamanistic in a sense, like a right of passage into the low-brow world of the macabre. It’s a way you can express to the world how you feel on the inside and for that, it has always been important to me. That being said, I figured you might want to know a little bit about me before you get tattooed.
I’m originally from West Columbia, South Carolina and tattooing was illegal when I was growing up there. Therefore I wasn’t exposed to a lot of tattoo culture except on television or in magazines. That is until I started skateboarding and listening to hip hop. And even more so, when I started going to hardcore shows in high school. Everybody I looked up to was covered in tattoos. Coincidentally I wanted to be heavily tattooed from a young age. When I was around the age of 16 I moved to Florida and tattoos seemed to be everywhere and it felt sort of surreal. It wasn’t until I was around 20 years old, that I had dropped out of college and found the right people to be around to learn to tattoo from. I am thankful to have worked alongside some really talented people over the past ten years and I consider myself grateful for everything tattooing has afforded me in my life. I am a professional tattooer, located in Tampa, Florida and I believe in taking time with my clients to give them the best Tattoo Experience I can. Being a custom tattooer, I give 110% on every tattoo that leaves my chair. I believe in quality custom tattoo work, a higher standard of tattooing and shop environment. I specialize in American traditional, Japanese, black and grey, fine line, bold line and portraits. I accept appointments and walk-ins all year long. I look forward to creating your next tattoo for you.
Making tattoos that look like tattoos is kinda my thing. I like to make folky imagery that can be as pretty or touch as you want it to be, regardless of the subject matter. I strive to make every design even more unique than the last and I always prove to be my worst critic.
