My name is Dirk Kjelland and Tattoos not only saved my life, they are my life. I believe that tattooing is the most sacred and divine art form in the world so I always put my clients and art before everything. I’m enjoy all styles but typically gravitate towards the watercolor and Trash Polka styles with tattoos and am now exploring portraits and Neo Tradional tattoos as well. I started tattooing in November of 2017 and I finished my apprenticeship in June of 2018. In December 2018 I showcased my art & tattoos at Raw artist Holiday Rock and I recently attended my first convention, The Ink Masters tattoo convention in Cleburne Texas. I’m looking forward to many more conventions and expos to further my craft and showcase my art. At the beginning of February 2020 I walked into Ink817 Tattoo Co. for the first time and found my new home. If you know exactly what tattoo you want or even if you have no idea what you want, come see me. There’s nothing I like doing better than being able to customize your tattoo to you. I pride myself on going to all lengths to make sure that you get the best tattoo you can get anywhere. If you're on Instagram or facebook follow me @dirksartworks and follow @ink817tattoo. Thanks and I’ll see y’all soon!
