Styles: Illustrative Realism, Nu-Eastern, Techno-organic
My name is Ant Iannucci and I am a New York native, born and raised on Long Island. This is where my adventure in Tattooing began. I graduated from F.I.T. in Manhattan, receiving an Associates Degree in General Illustration. I have been a Tattoo Artist since 1996 and a tattoo studio owner since 1998.
I take great pride in my work and love what I do. It is continually an honor to have clients trust in me and my abilities to customize and perhaps bring aspects of their inner self to the surface for all the world to see for the rest of their lives. The style of tattooing I enjoy most runs the gamut from Full Color to Black & Gray; Techno-Organics and Bio-mechanical, Space and Cosmic art, and Spiritual Themes of all kinds.
I’ve also written, illustrated, and published an illustrated Spiritual Novella called ION: THE ISNESS OF NOW. I have copies available at the tattoo shop for $20 if you have interest.
Please review the extensive F.A.Q. page so that any questions you may have will hopefully be answered before you come in or contact us.
Getting Tattooed By Me
Returning and current (in-progress) clients take priority to any new consultations and appointments. At times I may take breaks from new consultations to focus on the projects I have before me, as to do the best possible job on said projects and clients. If I take an interest in your Tattoo idea during these times, I can put you on my Waiting List until I am ready to take on new projects and will contact all those on the List when the timing is right for me to do so. Of course, if waiting an indeterminate amount of time for me does not fit your goals please feel free to contact any of the other Ascension Artists who very well be able to work within your desired time frame.
I charge on an hourly basis at a rate of $180 per hour and have a minimum of $300 per piece. I charge $150 for a deposit which goes towards my time for designing the tattoo and holding your initial appointment. If no design work needs to be done and we are just holding a date and time, then the deposit comes off the price of the first session. This deposit is non-refundable.
Type of Work
As far as what kinds of Tattoos I prefer to do, I am pretty much excited about most styles of tattooing and willing to take on most projects that fit my personal style and ascetic…That is unless it is Tribal, Mandala and Celtic. Don’t get me wrong, I love the way it looks but I do not enjoy doing it…so I don’t. I prefer to stick with my style, so if you want fine-line, fantasy, spiritual, color, black and gray…I got you. Tribal? One of the other talented gentlemen at our studio can take care of you. Also, I personally do not do cover-ups, touch-ups of other peoples work or finishing other peoples work except for some special circumstances such as the cover-up tattoo being something very faint and small. Many of the other Ascension Artists will be willing to work with you on this type of work and many specialize in it.
