Meet the Artist
Arlo DiCristina has rapidly achieved both a national and international reputation as a creative tattoo artist with exceptional skill. He was born in Albany, New York, but lived there for only a short time. When he was young, he and his family moved on several occasions, residing in different regions of the United States and, for a time, in Europe (Vienna, Austria). After high school, Arlo moved to Duluth, Minnesota, where he tried to make a living primarily through his drawings and an apprenticeship at a tattoo studio. Although he was in Duluth for only one year, his experiences there solidified his commitment to pursue a career as an artist. Arlo eventually moved to Grand Junction, Colorado, where he currently works out of his tattoo studio, Elysium. He specializes in surrealistic images and morphs, and most of his paintings, drawings, and tattoos are in black & gray. His artistic interests and style reflect the diverse environments in which he has lived and traveled, which include areas of Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. Arlo’s work has appeared in Inked magazine as well as other publications and is readily available for viewing on Instagram (@arlotattoos). He practices his craft at conventions throughout the United States and also has taken his skills to Australia, Finland, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.
