Joe Tricomi was born in West Palm Beach, Florida and has always been influenced by art, even from his childhood. Growing up in South Florida during the 90s, he took inspiration from various sources of art, such as Marvel Comics (most notably X-Men), Spawn, Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo, and anything fantasy related from the 70s-90s. Joe is also heavily influenced by 80s and 90s pop culture and is a rabid fan of the music from that era.
Joe is an avid nerd, likes to sing a lot, plays Dungeons and Dragons & Magic the Gathering, plays a lot of old and new video games, has an unhealthy obsession with 80s Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, and thinks vikings and wizards are really awesome.
Joe attended Ringling College of Art and Design, where he graduated in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration. He then soon moved to Dallas, Texas where he lives with his miniature dachshund, Dax.
Joe has been tattooing since 2013 and is very interested in pursuing more work in the neotraditional-illustrative style. Joe enjoys the challenge of cover up and rework tattoos, and generally enjoys any tattoo with which he can apply bold and bright color, and solid lines.
Joe currently works at Rebel Muse Tattoos in Lewisville, Texas and is excited to branch out to more conventions and traveling work opportunities in the near future!
