Coming from a family full of artists, Joseph “Miles” Hudyma was exposed to art at a young age. From drawing on walls to painting on canvas and sculpting clay, Joe always strived to create which led him to pursue art as a career. He majored in both Graphic and Industrial design at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Ultimately, deciding that the corporate world of art was not for him, he began looking at alternative art mediums leading him to tattooing.
After years of trying to enter the tattoo industry, Joe came across the work being produced at Necropolis tattoo. In September 2016 Joe set out to learn the craft of tattooing from Ryan Burke and Angela Mooney and made the move from Pittsburgh, PA to Salem, OR. Not necessarily having a “style”, Joe takes pride in being versatile and aims for perfection with anything that comes his way. His favorite kinds of tattoos are anything that has bright bold color and black and grey realism.
