Joshua Sutcliffe @fitz_tattoo is a home grown Las Vegas dude with a sports and outdoors addiction. Josh has also lived in southern California, Arizona and did a short stint in Cabo San Lucas while working with Hart and Huntington at the beginning of his tattoo career. He said they sent him down there to cut his teeth on the inebriated tourists. Interesting!
The Instagram handle @fitz_tattoo was derived from his eleven year old blue nose pit bull whose name is Fitzgerald. To take this a step further, Josh’s pit bull was named after Arizona Cardinal’s player Larry Fitzgerald @larryfitzgerald. Nothing weird at all about that! It works!
Mr. Sutcliffe has always had a passion for sports in general. From and early age he was engaged in football, BMX, motocross, snowboarding and surfing to name a few. In recent years he has also enjoyed hiking and running. “Basically anything outdoors will do”, Josh says.
Traveling is also one of his many interests. Josh went to a new destination once every three weeks last year! Some of the places he visited include Venice, CA, Sedona, AZ, Chandler, AZ, Seattle, WA and even Costa Rica. “It’s exhausting” says Josh.
Art and music also captivate Josh’s attention when he’s not pursuing athletic endeavors. He enjoys playing bass guitar (just for fun) and is an avid fan of classic rock music. Some of his spare time is spent doing watercolor paintings of deceased rock stars such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Tom Petty and a host of others. “It’s a flat piece of paper that doesn’t talk” is why Josh enjoys the watercolor medium.
Currently a single guy, Josh said he was “technically married” to a very beautiful Canadian girl. This one lasted a whopping three months! “Relationships are not my strong point” says Mr. Sutcliffe.
It’s been a pleasure having Josh as part of the Studio 21 staff for the last couple years. His tattoo art is outstanding and will not be pigeonholed into any particular style. The attention to detail cannot be overlooked. Check out his portfolio here on our site. You won’t be disappointed!!
