My name is Kyle Malone and I'm a tattoo artist, I've been professionally tattooing since 1996. I owned a busy and successful tattoo studio in Minneapolis for 7 years but put that to rest in late 2006 to get back to what I do best, just being an artist. I'm mainly influenced by Japanese art, American Traditional and portraits, with a strong focus on clean lines, solid, bright colors and a completely hand-drawn, custom approach to everything I produce. I travel quite frequently, tattooing in about 25 different states and Canada. Outside of the shop I work with my friends Papa Roach as their private touring tattoo artist, I've also toured and worked with Buckcherry, Hinder, Nickelback, Saving Abel,12 Stones, Rev Theory and Billy Bob Thornton and The Boxmasters. I take great pride in working with the intelligent ideas of a discerning tattoo collector and strive to maintain an attitude of professional and artistic integrity. I energetically believe in what I do, forever being a student of my craft. My enthusiasm is evident; my passion is undeniable. Simply put, I love what I do.
