Looking For an Amazing Anime Tattoo?


I'm Derrick O’Neal, aka DJ Tattoos, and I've been obsessed with drawing anime since I was a kid. Let's connect and make your anime ink dreams a reality!

Hi, I'm Derrick O’Neal, the founder of DJTattoos. 

What's up, anime fans? I'm a Columbus-based tattoo artist with a lifelong love for gaming and anime. I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and after a stint studying Architecture at UC, I finally found my true calling: bringing your favorite characters to life through my tattoos.

I've always been drawn to the iconic style and storytelling of 90s anime, with legends like Toriyama and Kishimoto shaping my artistic vision from a young age. 

Yusuke will always hold a special place in my heart as my favorite protagonist – I even have a figure of him shooting his Spirit Gun! 

When you come to me for a tattoo, you can expect me to channel that same passion and attention to detail, creating a piece that captures the essence of the anime you love most.
