Ishmael Johnson started tattooing in 2000, and since then he has dedicated himself to putting great Japanese, Americana, and weirdo tattoos onto his clients.
When he isn’t tattooing in Fort Collins, you can find Ishmael at conventions and shops across the United States and around the world. He is regularly found at the Salt Lake City Tattoo Convention, the Montreal Art Tattoo Show, Austin Tattoo Convention, and he tattooed at the International Puerto Rico Tattoo Convention in December of 2016. Some of the shops that he visits for guest-spots include Heart of Gold in Salt Lake City, Salvation Tattoo in Richmond, Invisible NYC, Liquid Courage in Omaha, Copenhagen’s Le Fix, All Gold Tattoo in Gothenburg, Webbworks Tattoo in Florida, Reykjavík Ink in Iceland, and many others.
