Jeff Mann has owned and operated Vishnu Bunny Tattoo since 2000 when he moved from Denver Colorado and entered into a partnership with several old friends. Within two years, those partners moved on, and Jeff has been the sole proprietor since the summer of 2002.

 

It all began in the late summer of 93 during a Blues gig in South Dakota. After receiving his first tattoo, Jeff instantly knew that he was ready for a new path in his career. He returned to Denver and immediately started seeking out an apprenticeship, and within six months, in the spring of 94 He began learning to tattoo under the tutelage of Chris Mckevitt at Maxtats tattoo. Mckevitt, a former illustrator shared his art knowledge, and emphasized a strict regiment of clean linework and a solid foundation in gray shading.


Three years later in the summer of 97, Jeff left Maxtats and ventured out to pick up knowledge and new techniques working at several other Denver area tattoo shops. He spent 98-2000 traveling and participating in a number of conventions around the country learning much along the way. Jeff has always maintained the practice of surrounding himself with talent, preferring to work with his equals and bettors so as to encourage an environment of artistic growth among the people in his establishment.
