Art has always been an integral part of my life, a passion that permeates everything that I do. As a tattoo artist, I get to bring that love of art to life and share it with so many people. This is why Joa Antoun Tattoos stand out. I earned a degree in graphic design and got my start working for a firm. Eight years ago while still in university, I became fascinated with the art of tattooing, utilizing my graphics training to come up with simple but dynamic tattoos. I continued tattooing through university and after because I wanted to put something on someone’s body that they could carry for the rest of their lives. I could affect people in such a personal and interesting way by giving them a tattoo that was meaningful both to them and to me. I became involved with an international community of tattooists in Istanbul after traveling there, and while working side-by-side with these artists I honed my craft as a professional tattooist. Since then, I have returned to Istanbul a number of times and traveled to other countries to serve guest spots, tattooing clients from all over the world. My studio in Beirut, where I call home, is a welcoming place for clients and creatives, for my team and I maintain a standard of professionalism and hygiene unmatched by other tattoo studios in Lebanon. Known throughout the region for my fine, delicate lifework and acute attention to detail, clients across Lebanon and even from elsewhere around the world visit my studio due to the quality experience they receive. From the nurturing of an idea, to the development of a design, and onwards to the completion of a tattoo to the lasting aftercare, my team and I make sure every client receives the comfort and creativity that makes us great.
