water mark private studio


in 2012 I moved with my family to live in Atlantic highlands NJ,where I used to commute to New York by ferry , about 5 yrs ago I opened a private tattoo studio in Atlantic highlands , and I used to split the time between there and New York adorned ,

in July 2018 new York adorned closed its doors after 22year . defiantly an end of an era .

I`ve been working there for 17 years ,and words can’t describe how greatfull I am for that time .


after adorned closed I spend most of my time here in Atlantic highlands , I still work in New York once a week on Mondays .

at ” five points tattoo ” . great shop with amazing artists .

last year  I also finished my 10 yrs studying at New York Tibetan art studio in Brooklyn , and Evan tough my formal studying is over , I still study and practice as much as I can , here at my private studio .

if you want to get tattooed by me , you can contact me at : . to get tattooed be me at my private studio , you can either drive down 1hr and 10 min from Manhattan , or take the ferry( 45 min`)  from south street sea port in Manhattan .

the studio is 2 blocks walk from ferry landing , the ferry ride is beautiful and you get to feel like a tourist , seeing the New York sky line and Verrazano bridge , Atlantic highlands is a beautiful small town , with great restaurants ( one of them is jus organic that me and my wife opened up 2 yrs ago), attached is few photos from my private studio :

thank you !

my Trip to Amsterdam

Filed under: tattooing — yonizilber @ 11:12 pm

my first trip ever out of my country  was Amsterdam ,i decided i want to be a tattoo artist when i was 17 years old,and after i got refused in the only shop i know i can learn best. i started my trip to look for apprenticeship , Amsterdam seems to me like the best place to start , i heard about hanky panky and i said to myself i`ll go there first , i bought one way ticket , told my family i will come back only as a tattooer , the first thing i did after landing , is going to hanky panky`s shop with a bunch of my drawings and try my luck , i got “kicked out “of the shop preety fast , i did try again and again but it didn`t work .

I was walking around tattoo shops for a little more then a month when I realize , its not easy :).

I went to England from their , but here the story get longer and longer , ill stay on the Amsterdam story .

anyway time pass and i was lucky to meet avi vanunu in Amsterdam and i got back to Israel and eventually got an apprenticeship from him.( thanks avi)

since then i`ve been in Amsterdam many times .

About 19 years pass (I started tattooing few years after so i`v been tattooing about 15 years now), and i`ve got invited to work at the world famous tattoo museum own by the one and only hanky panky , what a circle of life.

I was very honored to be working at the museum and I felt like it was kind of a crazy circle of life in a way , anyway here are some of the tattoos I did .

i tattooed 3 of my favorite people on Amsterdam monica , samantha , and amar

monica is a tattoo artist that when we met she was a famous dj and a tattoo collector and we`ve been friends for many years , samantha is a close friend as well and she does body piercings at classic ink and mods in Amsterdam ( great shop as well )

And amar is just an amazing person good friend and incredible tattooer .

and justine ( with the dragon )from Germany was a great costumer


please if you in Amsterdam go and check out that museum it an amazing place .


the redness on monice`s tattoo is from a numbing cream she used before we started
