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 .


DERRICK RAGSDALE | @mars_rags

Derrick is a car assembly worker from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Though Derrick enjoys his work he would love to be a full-time photographer or be doing anything in fashion. He heard of us through Instagram and we are thankful for that as Derrick takes great fitness shots in our hats and tees. He got his first tattoo at 18 of his mother and father’s name on his hands. His collection has really grown from there, he now has 2 full sleeves, a covered torso, and 1 leg sleeve. His hobbies range from fitness and photography to fashion. Follow him to see what he loves in fashion, his street photography, and see him working hard in the gym.

STEPHANIE PARIZO | @tatted_traveler@tattedup4me

Stephanie has a passion for tattoos that’s been growing since the age of 16. This 38 year old from Wisconsin works as a tattoo artist promoter, she loves what she does and wants to expand into clothing promotion as well. Her first tattoo was on her 18th birthday and it was a long time coming. “I stood outside Back Breaking Tattoo from age 16 until the day of my 18th birthday, staring at the flash on the walls. The owner would bring the books out for me to look at. The day of my birthday, I walked in and got a tiger head on my ankle and walked out with a receptionist position!” Stephanie loves spending her time reading, drawing, writing, and traveling. Follow her to see an array of things, “I like to keep people guessing!”

TONY "BIGG TONE" LODEN | @Biggtattoos

Bigg Tone is a 30 year old tattooer from Livonia, Michigan. He has been an InkAddict from the start and has been wearing our “kickass clothes since 2008.” He loves his career as a professional tattoo artist and wouldn’t trade it for the world. Bigg Tone’s first tattoo was at 18, it was a Chinese symbol which he has since covered up. His collection now covers most of his body and gives him confidence. “I’ve always had issues with my appearance and my self-esteem, yet I’ve always been able to modify myself with this artwork to where I am now comfortable standing butt naked in the middle of a crowd if I need to.” Bigg Tone spends his free time raising his 3 daughters, when he’s not with them he is perfecting his art and tattooing. Follow him to get a glimpse into his life and check out his work.

JAIME ZBOZIEN | @zbozien

We’ve all heard the quote, “Behind every successful man is a woman,” this couldn’t be more true here at InkAddict. Jaime has been the backbone here for 6 years. She’s the manager of quite a lot and we’re all positive that she grows tired of hearing her named called from all corners of the office. Jaime is the woman behind the scenes that makes sure all the cogs are working smoothly.
Jaime first heard about InkAddict through our good friend Lance Kellar, she started out as a graphic designer but quickly became the HBIC. Her first tattoo at 25, was 2 scorpions with their tails entwined to represent her son and herself. Her collection has grown from there and she just recently added the Corpse Bride to her arm. While she spends a lot of time here with us, when she gets some time away she likes to play Call of Duty and keep up her interest in horses. Jaime use to ride and compete in competitions when she was younger as she’s always had a love for horses. She doesn’t post too regularly on social but when she does, it’s usually about family.



Jaime is wearing a discontinued design. Click HERE to see similar products
