Tony De Rigo
My name is Tony De Rigo. I started tattooing in late 1992. After working an apprenticeship in Medina, Ohio, i decided to open my own studio. In 1994, I opened Chronic Tattoo in Elyria, Ohio. Here, I have established a reputation for large scale tattooing, specializing in japanese and traditional styles. I have worked countless conventions, winning countless awards. Through traveling around the world, I've brought back skills that I've honed into a style that is unique and recognizable. Browse my gallery for examples of my work.
My name is Marc Warnick. I'm a self made, self educated artist and
graphic designer of 30 years and tattooer of 16 years. I started
tattooing in Youngstown, Ohio back in 1994. Shortly after that, I had
a 2 year stint in the Kent/Akron area where i met Sweet Chuck Schoor
and Tony DeRigo. In the spring of 1997, Sweet Chuck and myself opened
Hot Rod Tattooing in Martins Ferry, Ohio (just outside of Wheeling, WV.).
Between late 1999 to early 2000, I left Hot Rod and moved on to open
my own studio, just outside of Pittsburgh, called Independent Tattoo.
It was marvelous and i loved it. After 8 years of blood, guts, and
the birth of my daughter, I decided to leave Pennsylvania,and have
been at Chronic since. I have traveled and worked extensively with
Tony DeRigo (who i site as my mentor) as well as Jeff Zuck, Dawn Cooke,
Bill Fallsetta, Justin Shaw, Scott Smith, Jet, and Josh Mason.
My influences in tattooing include Eddie Duesch, Greg Irons, and
Daniel Higgs. I prefer to tattoo traditional imagery. Weird and quirky is an interest.
I'm available for tattooing at Chronic Tattoo on Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon till 8p.m.

My name is Jarrett Ward, and I began an apprenticeship under Tony De Rigo
in November of 2008. Having spent the last ten years of my life getting tattooed
by tattooists I look up to, such as Greg Christian, Nick Fabini, Jeff Zuck, Jet,
Steve Turner, and many more I’ve learned to appreciate the fundamentals of tattooing.
My favorite styles are traditional and neo-traditional, but I don’t intend on
limiting myself, therefore, I’m always expanding my knowledge by exploring new approaches and techniques.
I have recently been published in several books including "Corquille Or Be Killed, Unobserved; A Celebration Of Obscure Holidays", and a yet to be released book known as "Death Or Glory". Some of my works have been exhibited in various art shows throughout the US, including Florida, Ohio, Texas, and will soon subsume Missouri and California. Examples of my paintings and tattoos can be found in the gallery section, and I’m available at Chronic Tattoo every week on Friday through Tuesday.
