Emilio Saylor

A native of Northwest Indiana, Emilio is an extremely versatile artist who works across multiple medias with his art. Emilio has over a decade of experience in the tattoo industry, and is widely considered one of the top tattooers in the Midwest. He also has plenty of time put in on the tattoo convention circuit around the United States, racking up an impressive list of awards. Recently he has flexed his muscles in the blackwork style, but also has a very distinct new school flair. He is sponsored by Electric Ink and has been published seven times in six different tattoo-specific magazines.
