Originally born in Hawaii, Eli moved to Ohio as a child where he has called this area home since. Eli had the opportunity to join this amazing culture by learning to tattoo just outside of Delaware in Ashley, Ohio. A home grown local made good.
He has been tattooing for just under a decade and a half and spent the past few years nurturing his craft in the city of Columbus. Working in the city helped expose Eli to many great tattooers, tattoo shops, and allowed him the opportunity to travel, get tattooed, and discover his own style. A style of crisp, clean, easily read tattoos made with a great sense of humor and a big heart.
Eli is a truly genuine representation of what a tattooer should be. A kind, creative, funny, artistic character who understands the power of a good tattoo! Now, Eli has brought his amazing talent and good nature back to Delaware Co. to bring his interpretation of what a professional tattoo shop should be with Rose & Web Tattoo.
Eli helped build a beautiful home for tattooing, overflowing with culture and an insane amount of talent within small town Delaware. The walls almost cannot contain his love for tattooing and for every client. Eli's client retention is unbelievable. Once you've been tattooed and experienced the magic Eli creates you'll be a friend of his as well as a lifelong client.
He enjoys tattooing in a wide variety of styles and designs, but has a passion for Japanese and Traditional American tattooing. Please visit Eli today to experience a great time and an even better tattoo. For info or booking please contact Eli in person to schedule your next tattoo appointment!

Danny has been tattooing for 11 years. Starting his apprenticeship in 2011 in Akron, Ohio. Tattooing drew Danny in as it seemed like a secret world full of wild characters who lived on the edge and carved their own path on the outskirts of society. To Danny, walking into a tattoo shop was a thrilling, truly new experience that elicited many feelings such as excitement, awe, and fear. Danny was the tender age of 17 when he got my first tattoo and instantly fell in love with this strangely magical world. Danny prefers to tattoo imagery based in a Traditional American tattoo style but can handle a bit of whatever walks into the shop. From classic flash, to the bizarre, Danny enjoys it all. Outside of tattooing, he spends his time hiking, bourbon tasting, films, and travel. Come visit Danny at RWT and peek into something old as time and as modern as tomorrow.
