TATTOO ARTISTS

Daryl Hammond A.K.A 'Dirty'

 

Daryl Hammond Sr. A.K.A. Dirty Dealins began his tattoo career along side Terrell Bonner in 1996.  1998, they created Xplosive Mentality Tattoos.  In 2003, I joined forces with Tyra Powell to create Cincinnati's first salon/tattoo parlor called Creative Handz, soon after I linked up with LaMetra Flowers at LaTouch Suites. After many years of success, I finally decided to open my own shop and created Barbers and Body Art, a barber shop/tattoo parlor.  My love for art doesn't stop at being a tattoo artist. It's almost impossible to ride through any business district in Cincinnati and not see a mural or window art that I've created.  I also customize clothes, shoes, and just about anything that can be painted on.  My ultimate goal is to open a massive space where ex-felons that tattoo or cut hair can come home and begin working immediately as oppose to going back to the streets. 

Kenn Melton A.K.A. 'Phenom'

I'm here to bring any idea you might have to L I F E. Come and get the PainFreaksOnly Experience!

James A.K.A. 'Black James'

James "Black James" Evans A.K.A I am more than a barber.  As a 20 plus years barber I’ve become a local celebrity barber to a few Cincinnati names like Chad Johnson, Odell Thurmond, the late great Chris Henry #15 slim, Eric Hicks and DJ Hi Tek to name a few. From fades to blends, beards, to dye of all culture backgrounds, I am cold with all of it. I am also the creator of Tre Unlimited LLC,  home of the onyx beard cologne,  an all-natural beard product that will change your life.
