REAL LIFE. REAL STYLE. #MYINKADDICT

We’re more than a tattoo clothing company, we are an all-encompassing lifestyle brand that aims to connect our culture with the community. To help promote the culture we’ve brought together a collective of tattooers, creatives, musicians, and many more to represent InkAddict worldwide. Our IA Nation members are out there doing awesome things to positively engage their communities and we wanted to share them with you .


ZEPHYR | @zephinspace

Introducing the newest member to the InkAddict family, Zephyr. This full time model and hair stylist is brand new to Detroit so we’re lucky we snagged her to help out with our social media and ambassadors. Zephyr has been collecting for 13 years now and running out of room! On her 18th birthday she started with flash of two crescent moons with the drama masks, promising her mom it would be her only one. Sorry mom, but as of today Zephyr has both her arms and legs covered as well as her hands, sternum, and chest. She enjoys writing, photography, podcasting, hiking, traveling, and of course, getting tattooed. Follow her on Instagram to see boudoir, implied nude, and fashion shots .

JOSHUA KASSABIAN | @Inkedinlove

Josh first heard of us back in 2010 when he was approached to do his first photo shoot with us. He’s currently in school working towards a degree in computer and electrical engineering but he also builds furniture and tattoos part time. Josh started getting tattooed at 17, four years later his first arm and leg sleeve were complete. To date about 75% of his body is covered in a wide variety of tattoo styles, concepts, and themes. Josh’s favorite artist currently is Paul Acker because of his impeccable technical precision and attention to detail. He jumps head first into anything he finds interesting so Josh has a wide variety of hobbies. He writes music, cooks and plates his food so well that even Gordon Ramsay would be impressed, and he’s even built a car. Follow Josh on Instagram to check out that Hell’s Kitchen worthy plating, furniture he’s built, and some modeling shots .

MALLORY LUND | @scolisuicide

Mallory found us online years ago and she’s been one of our favorite faces since. She started modeling 13 years ago and fell in love with photography. Mallory was lucky to learn the craft from a few of her idols and has worked with a wide array of companies from clothing brands to monster trucks. Mallory’s first tattoo was a small dove on her hip at 16 years old, by 18 she had a full chest piece. She loves old school, traditional tattoos so most of her work is made up of Sailor Jerry pieces. Mallory spends her time with her 7-year-old son, family, and friends. She also enjoys camping and kayaking, basically anything outdoors and of course taking pictures of everything along the way. Follow her on Instagram to see modeling and photography work .

KYLE DANLEY | @wetiko.detroit

Kyle is a 31 year old photographer and videographer based in Detroit. He first started seeing InkAddict pop up in tattoo magazines and conventions back when he owned a tattoo shop in California. Once he moved back to Michigan he realized we also call Detroit home. His first tattoo at 18 years old was a chapter title from Derrick Jensen’s The Culture of Make Believe done by artist Mark Heggie. Most of Kyle’s tattoos are now done by artist Tim Orth who use to guest spot often out of his old shop. The tattoo that means the most to him is “I’mScared” across his knuckles that represents the 7 years he suffered from agoraphobia and panic attacks. Kyle now spends his time exploring and taking pictures, listening to podcasts, and live streaming. Follow him on Instagram to check out his portrait photography and paintings.

Kyle is wearing a discontinued design, but you can check out our Men's collection Here
