Born and raised on the West Coast, Josh Corlin has been a professional tattoo artist since early 2000. His artistic roots planted him in California growing up into the start of his career when he took an opportunity in Hawaii, holding residence in Maui for the next 4 years. From the beaches to the mountains, Josh left back to the mainland, setting his anchor for 9 more years working alongside Apache Jil at Pirate Tattoo in Reno, NV. In 2015, Josh journeyed East, settling in comfortably with the talented team at Exposed Temptations just outside of Washington, DC in Manassas, VA.
Josh's trail has given him a well rounded artistic view and broad depth of knowledge in various styles of tattoos from black & gray, traditional, Polynesian, and new school styles. His inspirations not only come from his regional and cultural experiences, Josh names influences ranging from graffiti, cartoons, comic books, and pop art that fuel his art. As an artist, Josh loves to utilize color, specializing in bold color bombs and putting his twist into creating a one of a kind, truly original tattoo. "Anything that has pop to it... I love creating custom designs that follow in these styles that center around bright colors."
When he's not tattooing, Josh is constantly creating. Follow him on Instagram to see his latest tattoo art.
