Meet the Owner and Tattoo Artist, Mark “Mark Vincent” Grassano
How would you best describe your style? Versatile with my strong points in Portraits, Realism and Pinups. From Black and Grey to Color I love doing both. Possibly, I enjoy working in B&G a little more but I love the turn out or final product in color.
Do you have any publications or awards? I have 32 awards for my Portraits and Black & Grey work form various tattoo conventions up and down the East Coast.
What led you to work in mostly Realism, Portraits, and Pinups? These things just came naturally to me. When I was growing up I was a rad cartoonist. In grade school I would paint murals of comic book stuff on my walls. While in High School I would pass the time drawing portraits of my Favorite musicians and pin-ups. Interesting thing is my Tattoo Career went the same way. I started out tattooing traditional, cartoons and comics, then on to what I am known for Realism, Portraits and Pinups.
What has been one of the strangest pieces you have tattooed? A few crazy requests have come my way but the one that stuck out the most was a Customer wanted the cheshire cats smile (from allice and wonderland), just the smile and a part of the nose on the base of his neck and to allow it to wrap around each side a bit. The tattoo to my surprise was a huge hit with my other clients and people love looking at it in my portfolio. But to this day I think that was one crazy Badass tattoo.
Do you practice other media? I used to work a lot with pencil and color pencil drawing portraits of Iconic people. Now days tattooing has kept me so incredibly busy along with my business of Inventing and my family, that the only media I work in nowadays is skin and Ink.
What year did you start tattooing? 2007
What was you reason for getting into the tattoo industry? At that time in my life in 2007
I had already tried just about everything, from professional scuba diving in Barbados to painting houses in Main. It was time for me to make the “right” decision for myself. So my guidelines for my new career choice would be, a career that would be using my talents, would generate money, with room for growth, and lastly I would be passionate about. While getting tattooed it came to me….. Become a Tattooer…..Haven’t looked back since.
What inspires you as an artist? Intellectual ideas brought to light by design and imagery. I have always been both Inventor and Artist and the most inspiring moments are when the two join together to create something great. Super hard to explain but this has to be one of the most inspirational moments, strokes of genius.
I wanted a piece that was very personnel, had a lot of meaning and emotions involved, and done right. After a month of research while juggling a full time job and just “life” I found Iconic Tattoos. After talking to him for 5 minutes all my worry, doubt and hesitation were gone. He did just that. He nailed it, “killed it”. No!! He straight destroyed it. Thank you so much Iconic Tattoos and Mark Grassano for doing such an awesome job.
Mark is awesome. Artistic ability and attention to detail are off the chart!
Several family members and even more friends proudly wear Mark’s artwork.
