James Bio (@blackmasstattoo)

James Haun Tattoos Washington DC James Haun has been tattooing since 1996, and is a multi media artist/musician who originally hails from the west coast. A 4-year stint in the Army left James in the DC area, after which he began pursuing a career in tattooing. James worked in many shops in the metro area before establishing and co-owning his own tattoo shop in 2001 in Leesburg, VA. Finally in his own shop, James established himself as a versatile and talented custom tattoo artist.

In 2010 James decided he needed a change of scenery and he wanted to make a move that would allow him to push his art, both on skin and canvas to new heights. Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings was a natural fit for this custom tattoo artist and he is now a strong member of the Fatty’s crew. 

James specializes in many different styles of tattooing and his artwork has been featured in magazines, tour posters, t-shirts, and advertisements. He enjoys translating his client’s ideas and concepts into the tattoo of their dreams.

James can be found at Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings in DuPont Circle on Thursday through Sunday.
