My name is Joe Ankave I was born and raised in Haifa, Israel. When I was 19 years old I left to Tel Aviv to make my dream come true – to become a tattoo artist. I'm self-taught and have an incredible hunger for learning and growing as an artist. While living, working and growing in Tel Aviv for the next 6 years of my life, I had the opportunity to travel to Europe and work for some amazing tattoo shops in Berlin, Holland, Belgium, and Ibiza.

Today I’m 26 years old, living in LA and loving life. I specialize in neo-Japanese and realism tattoos, and I'm always down for new ideas, whether they're big or small tattoo projects, to lend my unique ability in tattooing.

I work full time at the tattoo shop, Generation 8, and would love to collaborate on your next tattoo. Feel free to contact the shop for a consultation or just come over and say hi.
