Daniel Forrester

Daniel was born in Memphis but moved around a lot...eventually his life landed him in Ames, Iowa. After entering the tattoo industry in 2005, he began travelling in search of knowledge and mentorship, working in Iowa, Pennsylvania, and California. 

In 2012, Daniel returned to Ames to find a place to settle down for good, finally founding Inkblot Studio in May of 2013 as a one-man painting and tattooing studio. He spent the next three years building his own clientele and the reputation of the studio as a go to space for community and art.

Daniel prefers large scale color pieces, classical realism, graphic design influenced pieces, and muted palettes. Contact him by email to book a consultation.
