My name’s Paul DeMarco, I’ve been working for Empire Tattoo since 2011. Before working for Empire, I made pizza for 4 years.

I was introduced to Jim Kelly when I started getting tattooed at an Empire location.

A little while later, Jim was looking for an apprentice to pierce and I took the job and have been working for them since.

I now reside in Pittsburgh at a new branch of Empire Tattoo.

We’ve been open since June 2014 and are in walking distance from the University of Pittsburgh.
Outside of the shop I’ve taken up drawing, painting, and hanging out with my dog crew as hobbies.
