johnnyvampotna-HDWorking in West Hollywood, Johnny Vampotna busts out sweet neo-traditional designs. “My main focus is to create a clean, timeless tattoo that fits the space,” he says. “It’s also important that the image ages well.” Vampotna’s favorite designs include the lasting symbols of life and death as well as animals, flowers, and his spin on pin-ups. “My pin-up style is of a darker subject matter, such as witches and devils— a reaper pin-up girl would be even better!” He says pin-ups hark back to the soul of tattooing. “It was time where these girls represented beauty. With simple line work and color, they were reminding soldiers there was something other than war—there was hope and either someone waiting for them at home or at the next bar.”
