About

  Thanks for visiting my website. My name is George Scharfenberg, here's a breif history of how I got to this point in tattooing. I was born in Staten Island, New York in 1974. But spent most of my childhood is Sarasota, Florida.

Growing up I was always interested in art and drawing spending a lot of time in the art room at school, even over the summer break. I was lucky enough the art teacher would let me into the art class while she was working. I never had it in my head that I would eventually become a tattoo artist as my parents were not tattooed. The only contact with tattooing I had growing up was from my Grandfather who was heavily tattooed. He got most of his tattoos while serving in the army in WW2.

In 1987 my family moved to Belfast, Northen Ireland where my mother was born. At the same time my uncle (my mothers brother) had returned to Northern Ireland with his family after leaving the US army where he learned to tattoo over ther years while traveling with the army.

Once he moved back to Northern Ireland he opened one of the first studios in the city. At the age of 14 I was hanging around the studio and would help out with the day to day goings on such as stenciling designs and talking to clients.

  I  studied graphic design and passed my HND course with merit in 1998.  

  I offically started my appreniceship in March of 2000. Over the years I have worked at a could of differnt studios, but now work at Belfast Tattoos Collective.  

I really enjoy most styles of tattooing. But love making new school style tattoos and also black and grey style work as well.

Please feel free to contact me about your tattoo ideas. I would love to hear what ya got.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and good luck, George
