Ahren Bloomquist

I began tattooing in 1995 in Rockford, IL at Goldie's Tattoo. I served a traditional apprenticeship there under Dana Clinton. It was a busy street shop that was great for honing my skills as a tattooer.

In late 2001 I began working at Electric Dragonland in Minnesota where I did only custom-drawn tattoos. I left there in March of 2005 to move back to Rockford, Illinois and now I am at Odds 'n Ends Tattoo here in Rockford.

I specialize in both traditional American and Japanese style tattoos.
