Since 2002, Joey Knuckles has devoted his time, effort, and every minute fiber of his being into becoming the proficiently creative artistic powerhouse that he is today at Columbus, Ohio’s High Street Tattoo. As a Columbus local, he always felt an obligational intent to bring his hometown his worldly knowledge of the rich history and culture of the tattooing microcosm.

Joey has cut his teeth by pouring his blood, sweat, and tears into his artistic passion and chosen profession at prestigious east coast shops such as Philadelphia Eddie’s, Olde City Tattoo, New York Hardcore, and Black Vulture Gallery.

After marrying the love of his life and heeding the call of home to Columbus, Ohio, his career came full circle when he inherited High Street Tattoo from its original founder and mentor, Giovani.

Joey and his “Knuckles Knows How” work ethic and love of tattoo history gives his clients ranges of proficient tattoo styles to choose from. Joey is experienced in small to large scale: cover­ups, custom lettering, Japanese style illustrations, traditional/neo­traditional, floral and custom illustrative pieces.

You can also see Joey’s album artworks for bands such as Old Firm Casuals, Pound for Pound, Wisdom in Chains and his own Yesterday’s Youth.

Joey has also has auspiciously dipped his large toes into world of fine art with wildly successful solo exhibitions like “Five Years in Philly” which was displayed in both Philadephia and Columbus in 2013. His large scale hand painted posters for local Hardcore/Punk shows inspired the installation of his 2016 gallery show Growing Up a Punk, a solo show featuring twenty+ years of Hardcore/Punk Rock culture and art.

When not tattooing, Joey hones his skills by investing time in commissioned paintings while also owning/co­owning three tattoo shops in the Columbus area with other talented local tattoo artists: High Street Tattoo, Body Language and Sacred Hand Tattoo.
