Dontae T. Foster (DTF)
Dayton OH native. Specialize in bright color and love wacky ideas. 7th year professional tattooer. Horror movie and anime enthusiast. I won Dayton Ohio best Tattoo artist 2023.
I have been tattooing professionally since 2016 after a 1 year apprenticeship. Throughout my journey in the tattoo industry I have worked in a variety of studios and street shops ranging from shops with no foot traffic in the middle of nowhere... to appointment only studios with 4 artists. In the time working over the last Six years I have been able to learn and grow with the help of some of the best artists in Ohio. Working in all styles across the board and doing cover ups most artist wouldn't take on. While developing my own methods and style I call "Space Music". The style consist of bright bold lines with saturated color. This style is perfect for anime/Neo traditional tattoos. I also developed a style that consist of textured whip shading with fine lines.
My goal has always been to be as transparent as possible with those who trust me to permanently alter their body. Im open and will give you my honest opinion about the tattoo. I also work with all types of skin tones and is very knowledgeable about how the colors will heal.
I have taken a lot of pride in the work I do making sure to create tattoos that allow each person to express who they are through the work or simply enjoy a beautiful piece.
