SHon Willis has been tattooing for 8 years. Growing up in New Jersey, he began as a body piercer, working out of his grandmother's house in 2004. Hell-bent on becoming a professional piercer, he talked a local hair salon into letting him set up shop for 2 years. Following that he accepted a job in New Castle DE and pierced there for 5 years before he was offered a chance to start tattooing. After 10 years of working around New Castle, SHon worked in Wilmington for 2 years before deciding to set up his own shop with his family in Bear Delaware, creating Malarkey Tattoo.
SHon won the 2018 Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention Best Traditional Tattoo 1st place for his work below.
He enjoys tattooing in American Traditional and Blackwork style, along with a few other variations.
