Leif Hansen has been tattooing since 2009 and is the owner of Great Wolf Tattoo. A Florida native his tattoo journey started in Tampa and shortly after he moved to Jacksonville to study traditional tattooing. He has since traveled the US and Europe to work with other artists and further hone in his style.
Over the years his love for large scale back, sleeve, and body suit work brought him to study Japanese Tattooing and the art of Edo japan (1603-1868). The time spent studying Edo Japanese art has given him a new perspective on how to give life to an illustration. He enjoys making traditional Japanese tattoos or combining what he’s learned from Japanese composition with illustrative traditional tattooing.
No matter the size or style, Leif has the tools and experience to give his clients the best tattoo possible.
