I’m a goofy bastard who loves what he does. I’ve been tattooing for 18 years! And I’ve loved every minute of it. I’m well versed in many styles of tattooing. But have an affinity for the more goofy, light hearted and colorful end of the craft. I love character and creature designs. I love art. And I LOVE YOU!
When it comes to tattooing, I have a real ” no nonsense” approach. I will always prefer to do a custom piece for you. And rightly so, I will try to steer you in that direction. Though, I’m not a rockstar who thinks tattooing is about him and will happily replicate if that’s what you want. I will always explain possible outcomes with designs. How they may age etc etc. At the end of the day, It’s your tattoo. Your experience. So it’s your call.
WHAT YOU MAY NOT WANT TO HEAR
There is a possibility that I may not take on your project. If that’s the case, I will be upfront and honest as to why. And I will ALWAYS recommend another artist I feel best fits your needs. Sometimes, I’m just not the right fit. I will not take your money and fuck up your work just to do it. I conduct myself with honesty and integrity, and sometimes that means having to admit I may not be able to do the tattoo you seek.
Monti charges $200 per hour with a minimum of $100. Monti does not tattoo hands/fingers or minors.

Anna Starr is currently apprenticing at Oddity Tattoo on Bee Ridge. Anna started with Oddity in August of 2021 and began tattooing in August of 2022. “Nothing has taught me more about life and myself than working in a tattoo shop,” says Anna. She continues, “I’m only in the beginning stages of my tattoo journey, but I can tell it’s going to help me be a better, stronger person.”
Anna’s lifelong love of art was supported by her family and friends. Even though Anna initially thought she might be better suited for a corporate art job, she started to realize her true path after getting tattooed herself. Her parents encouraged her to work hard and go for the dream tattoo career she really wanted. A gift from her parents, The Art of Animal Drawing, greatly influenced her passion for nature themed designs. She hopes to do many botanical and floral designs in the future.
An artist’s style will really begin to develop and evolve during their apprenticeship. “I really want to do more Japanese and traditional work. Everything seems so intentional, and I’d love to explore that style,” says Anna.
Outside the shop, Anna is currently working on some smaller woodblock and linocut printmaking projects. “I think that will help me to learn how to design well and simplify,” says Anna, which are important concepts in tattooing.
The whole Oddity team is excited to witness Anna’s progression and see the work she turns out over the next few months and beyond. We have nothing by confidence in her talent and integrity.

Come try White Hawaiian Lion, West Coast Circus City, or Chocolate Key Lime Pie.
Over the past couple months Oddity Tattoo has been fortunate enough to add three new and exceptionally talented artists to the team. Oddity UTC has added Josh Genatossio and Monti Monteneri. Oddity on Bee Ridge has welcomed Sidro Nicholson.
Sidro started tattooing in 1994. Over those past 27 years, Sid has done just about everything! He would rather avoid labels when it comes to his personal style of tattooing. Staying versatile and focusing on doing clean tattoos are more of a priority than being known for a specific type of tattoo. His favorite current project is an intense cover up on a hand that extends onto the fingers. “It was extremely challenging to cover so much and still keep it feminine and pretty,” said Sidro. You can follow the link here to view his work. To schedule a consultation with Sidro, call our Bee Ridge shop at 941 923 2278.
Over at the UTC shop, Monti already has several projects in the works he’s excited about. “I am excited about each one because I have creative control over the imagery to create it the way I envision it,” says Monti. Monti is well versed in many styles and would love to do more Japanese monsters, comic book characters and other cool creature concepts in the future. Monti has been making art his whole life and fell in love with the process of turning his art into tattoos roughly 20 years ago. You can follow the link here to view his work. To schedule a consultation with Monti, call our UTC shop at 941 358 6338.
Josh recently moved to Sarasota from the Boston area. Josh started his tattoo career in 2010. His interest in visual art stemmed from music. “I was very involved with the hardcore music scene and tattoos were a big part of that,” says Josh. “I was playing in bands and drawing art for them, which turned into drawing tattoos. Soon after that, I decided to switch from music to tattoos,” he continues. Josh enjoys doing a wide range of styles from realistic to illustrative and neotraditional. “I would love to do some pop culture portraits of famous characters, mostly from the 80’s and 90’s,” says Josh. Some ongoing projects he is most excited about include a skeleton crypt themed sleeve and animal portraits. You can follow the link here to view his work. To schedule a consultation with Josh, call our UTC shop at 941 358 6338.
The whole Oddity team is super proud of our homegrown Junior Artist, Jamie Williams. Jamie started apprenticing with Oddity in the spring of 19’ and started tattooing in Fall 20’. While Jamie is currently working at Main Street, she has also spent a considerable amount of time at Bee Ridge and UTC learning from all resident artists.
“Tattooing has really consumed my entire life, so if you’re not totally invested and ready to eat/sleep/breathe tattoos, it’s not for you,” says Jamie. She continues, “I love the focus on the artistry of tattooing at Oddity, and when I started getting tattooed here, I knew I didn’t want to apprentice anywhere else.”
Jamie has always wanted a career where she could create every day. Friends and family encouraged her to seek out a field in art that would continue to grow. “My mom has always been super supportive of my endeavors,” she says. After high school, Jamie started getting tattooed and really enjoyed the time she spent at the shops. From there the goal of becoming a tattoo artist was cemented. She spent as much time as possible getting tattooed, asking questions, and building her portfolio.
As Jamie continues to learn, she will branch out into different styles and subject matter. Recently she began a Haku dragon piece she’s very excited about. She also has some upcoming larger Pokémon tattoos on her schedule she’s very much looking forward to. “I’d love to do some video game inspired tattoos; Metroid, Star Fox, Overwatch, LOZ or anything with cool character design and concepts,” says Jamie.
Watching Jamie’s growth over the span of her apprenticeship has been incredible. “I’m very thankful for the opportunity I’ve been given here at Oddity and couldn’t be happier to wake up every day and go to my dream job,” she says.
You can follow the link here to view Jamie’s work. To schedule with Jamie, call our Main Street shop at 941 955 6246.
