Meet Our Artists

We strive to provide the highest quality tattoo specializing in watercolor and realism. We are constantly learning and growing to improve our craft.

Each artist apprenticed under Brad, learning here at Human Canvas Tattoo. And Brad has learned much from his apprentices. It takes years of hard work and dedication before obtaining a license. And we all still work together and help each other grow more and more each year. Each member of the team brings their own unique additions to the group, and by working so closes together we all benefit from each other.

Brad Owner and Artist

Brad Bellante     

Brad began his career in 1999 apprenticing under Curtis Moore here in Fredericksburg Virginia. He has worked at several different tattoo studios here in Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida, before opening up Human Canvas in 2014. Throughout the years he has a developed a style of tattooing far different than the traditional styles found too often in this area. He wants his tattoos to be works of art not repetition of flash tattoos from 50 years ago. His unique style is highly sought after with clients traveling from all over the country to get tattooed by Brad. Brad has passed down his years of experience to his apprentices, all of whom still work with us here at Human Canvas.
