Artist Feature: Ron Givens

 The incredibly talented Ron Givens first tattooed with Oddity as a guest artist at Main Street back in 2016. Ron decided to start full time with Oddity in 2019 and you can now find him at our Bee Ridge location.

  Ron is one of Oddity’s most versatile artists specializing in color, with experience in new school, neotraditional and realism. He’d love to do more new school and illustrative projects. “I love Japanese style tattooing but prefer to put my spin on things. I’m always up for flowers and cute animals or any mashup,” says Ron.

 Before becoming a tattoo artist, Ron drew a few tattoo designs for himself and friends. But growing up in Oklahoma, where tattooing wasn’t legalized until 2006, Ron had to travel out of state to start getting tattooed. “I got a huge tattoo on my back that turned out horrible and I said I don’t want this to happen to anyone else,” Ron explains.

To schedule with Ron, call Oddity on Bee Ridge at 941 923 2278 or email

Featured Artist Jason “Monti” Montenerri

Meet Monti,

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.
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.

To set up a Consultation or Appointment with Monti, call Oddity on Main Street at 941 955 6246 or click here

Artist Feature: Anna Starr

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.

You can follow the link here to view Anna’s work. To schedule with Anna, call our Bee Ridge shop at 941 923 2278.
