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.
