Adam Kaplan - [
I am a
2nd generation tattoo artist. Being the
oldest son of Big Joe I literally grew up in
a tattoo shop. I was 9 or 10 when I first
picked up a machine and attempted to do my
first tattoo. I have now been tattooing
fulltime since 1982 at the age of 16.
Throughout the years my work has been
featured in various tattoo publications,
newspapers and talk shows. Most of the time
you can find me in the White Plains studio.
Four years of private training in Fine Arts
throughout high school helped me get
accepted into Pratt Institute In New York.
After earning an Associate’s Degree in
Illustration I started tattooing in July
1993. I learned on my own before landing a
job at a well know shop in the Bronx in 1996
and returned to Westchester In 1998.
Throughout my career I have won numerous
awards for art design and tattoos and
appeared in many industry magazines. I have
also manufactured tattoo equipment and
instructional videos for the next generation
of tattoo artists.
