Orlando Tattoo Artist James “Gritty” Lyons

James “Gritty” Lyons

Tattoo Artist

Originally from Pennsylvania, Gritty looked to escape the cold winters of the northeast and bask in the warm Florida weather. An avid fan of art and tattoos since childhood, Gritty followed his interest into an apprenticeship and has not looked back. Taking a college master’s course for renaissance style painting, he displays his recreations around his station. Gritty believes people should get whatever type of art they want and doesn’t ask questions unless there is a desire for deeper meaning. His preferred styles of tattoos involve sacred geometry, patterns, mandalas, dot work, and black and gray scale. Outside of work he can be seen renovating vans from the 1980’s-90’s into livable spaces.
