Taunton tattoo artist shoots for the stars
‘‘I take pride in all my tattoos. So far, I just love the people I'm meeting,’’ he said.
‘‘I am dedicated to my artwork and tattoos, passionate about it,’’ he added. ‘‘I am a very competitive person and am constantly striving for bigger and better things for myself and my artwork.’’
In addition to tattoos and paintings, Jones has also created murals for local residents and businesses. Recently, he completed a centennial mural for Coyle and Cassidy, his alma mater, and has been asked to paint a second mural in the school’s hallways.
This summer, he will also be painting a mural at DeAvila’s Restaurant in Taunton.
‘‘That’s the big one. That’s going to be really cool. I'm looking forward to that one,’’ he said.
He continues to tattoo at least twice a day at Action Ink, and he said he is looking to launch his clothing line — ‘‘REAL’’ with a backwards ‘R’ — in the near future.
He also created the local clothing line Klutch and the Kid.
Jones can be reached for a tattoo appointment at Action Ink or through his website www.realryanjones.com. His website will also link to his clothing line once it launches, he said.
Those interested can also follow Jones at his Facebook page ‘‘Real Ryan Jones’’ or his Twitter at (at)realryjones.
