Voluta Tattoo was founded in 2006 by Conan Lea. He wanted a smooth, relaxed, balanced atmosphere for great tattoo. A place his daughters would be proud of. He's still at it. Conan's deeper story on Voluta can be found here.
Conan directs and teaches, but less than ever lately, spending more time on his own clients and long term strategy for the studio. The hum of happy artists and ecstatic clients is wonderful. There is always laughter and great music. Voluta artists will attend some favorite tattoo conventions this year and will hone their fine art skills. They will also court some established talent and bring it to Indy.
We will explore some new tattoo conventions stateside and in Europe, Australia and Asia. We will continue to attend seminars and classes. We might teach one or two. We will get to know other national top studios and mix our mojo. We might invent and market a few pieces of gear and sell it to the tattoo industry. We will offer up some nice merchandise. We will take tattoo as an art form to the local art shows. And to breast cancer survivors.
