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.

I definitely recommend anyone looking for a quality tattoo to check him out

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....

Japanese

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

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!

Black & Grey

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!

FAQ's

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.
Methods of payment?
CASH, Debit, Credit, PayPal, Venmo, Cashapp, Zelle
How old do you have to be to get tattooed?
The State of Florida requires all individuals to be 18 years of age to get tattooed without a parent consent.
Do I need my driver's license to get tattooed?
It is required to provide a valid driver's license to get tattooed. If you don't have one, a state ID will suffice. Simply put, we have to be able to prove that you are who you say you are.
How long does it take for a tattoo to heal?
Everybody is different. That being said, it takes about two weeks to heal and one more week to “settle in”.
Do you do touch ups?
Adam Roof guarantees all of his work and touch ups (if needed) are free as long as you followed your aftercare instructions and didn’t do anything to cause your tattoo to heal rough.
