The Art of Christopher Conn Askew

Christopher Conn Askew is a phenomenally talented tattoo artist, painter, and illustrator.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Conn later moved to Europe and is currently based at his Sekret City studio in Aachen, Germany.

Conn has a highly distinctive style which has inspired countless artists since he began tattooing in 1990; his skill and creativity has rightly earned him a place as one of the most well-respected tattooers in the field. Despite this, Conn is a modest character who prefers to stay away from the limelight, focusing on his creative output.

With an artistic career spanning over 25 years, Conn took a 6-year hiatus from tattooing to focus on producing art in a variety of other mediums. He returned to tattooing in 2012 to great acclaim from the tattoo community.

The London Tattoo Convention are honoured to display a selection of Christopher Conn Askew’s works this year. One of the most influential artists in modern tattooing, Conn’s work is not to be missed; catch the exhibition in our gallery area this September 28-29-30th.
