dmon the architect

D'mon has worked as a tattoo artist for 21 years, inking people from various cultures and all walks of life including celebrities of music, film and television. Born and raised in New Zealand, he has owned studios in New Zealand and Australia and most recently opened Obsidian LA. D'mon apprenticed with late Phil Mathias in his native land, and has long-drawn inspiration from authentic expression and unconventional thought.

As a creator of forms, The Architect, works beyond the realm of appearances, interpreting his client's personal myths to evoke a collaborative artistic expression. Intuitively aware, he is able to interpret the subtle nuances of his clients' thoughts, dreams, and passions grounding his artistic vision in the universal connection of mind, body, and spirit.
