Japanese style full coverage tattooist and painter based in Denver.

My name is Josh Wrede, a Denver based tattoo artist, painter, and mixed media designer. I focus on large scale Japanese mythological themed work, including full sleeves and back pieces.

To me, Japanese mythology is at the heart of my passions as a tattooist. Whether I'm creating a something beautiful, menacing, or intricate, I've been studying the art of Japan for over 10 years and have made it my life's work. Whether it is a koi, oni, or some other inspiring creature, it all feels unique and exciting to that particular piece for each particular client.

In 2014 I opened a small, appointment-only tattoo studio in the heart of Denver, Colorado called Til Death Denver. For artist contacts, portfolios, and studio information please visit us online!
