Meet The Artists
Owner | Tattoo Artist
Born and raised in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York, Joe Marzolf has been tattooing for over thirty years. Joe began his career back in 1981 when he headed down to North Carolina and started drawing for a southern tattoo parlor, then apprenticing, where he gained a solid foundation in tattooing. Joe honed and shared his talent up and down the eastern coast, tattooing in studios in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania, learning to pierce along the way. Joe then ended up right back in western New York; upon his return he dabbled in a few other professions: he is a certified welder, can tend a mean bar, and has bounced many drunken fools, while continuing to tattoo on the side. In 1997, he decided to return full-time to his passion and opened Roadhouse Tattoos and Body Piercings in Holland. Joe’s unique style ranges from fine line portraiture, to bold and vivid color pieces, his tribal is unrivaled and he creates the most distinctive black and grey you will find in these parts of NY. Joe’s extraordinary attention to detail has won him countless awards; Joe is an artist first and foremost and strives to individualize every tattoo, custom-tailoring them to each client.
