Today at BikerOrNot, we are going to introduce you to an incredibly skilled tattoo artist by the name of Josh Payne. Josh is from a tiny town in upstate New York called Newark Valley – no joke if you blink, you’ll probably miss Newark Valley – but he brings huge talent to what is known as one of the smallest towns in America. Not only is Josh an amazing artist, but he’s also a motorcycle enthusiast, which to us is the complete package.
Josh owns Ascend Gallery in Cortland, NY; it’s a tattoo studio and arts gallery, and while he’s not busy banging out badass tattoos, he’s adding to his extensive and impressive paintings gallery, as well as working hard to create complex and beautiful sculptures. In the past, Josh worked for ArtFuel INC in Wilmington, NC, which was also a tattoo studio and art gallery combo. Josh, who is only 30 years old, has been tattooing for several years, and outside of his work, he spends his time with his girlfriend Amber, as well as refining his already astounding artistic skills.
Check out the photo gallery of Josh Payne’s phenomenal tattoo work below, and tell us in the comments if you’ve ever gotten a tattoo from this legend. We’re thrilled to be sharing his work here on BikerOrNot, and in the future we plan to feature more artists like Josh – so stay tuned for much more tattoo badassery in the coming weeks! Would you travel to go get yourself a tattoo from Josh Payne?
