Rebel Art Tattoo Studio opens Friday

In former Ada Herald office

By Monty Siekerman
His enthusiasm for art is readily apparent when talking with Justin Niles, the man who will do your tattoo or sell you some of his art whether it be something to frame, a work with leather, or a sculpture.

Justin, who lives in Findlay with his wife, Julie, and three kids, can be found at a new business in Ada that opened on Friday.

Laura Atkin owns Rebel Art Tattoo Studio, 229 N. Main (the former office of The Ada Herald). Laura formerly lived in Ada for 15 years, likes the town, and decided to open a shop on Main. She is a crafter, as well. She convinced friend Justin to be the tattoo artist. The 1500-square-foot location offers plenty of space for Justin’s art as well as room for him to tattoo.

The facts: Open Tuesday-Saturday, noon to 8 p.m. 419-558-1272. Grand opening 5 p.m. Friday, June 8 with gift bags for the first 50 people, drawings for art prints, and tattoo gift certificates. Facebook and website: Justin Niles Art. Email: JustinNilesArt@yahoo.com

The artist has a large amount of his work displayed in the shop, such as computer designed prints as well as work with colored pencil and markers, and prismatic colors. A display case holds items made of leather such as key chains and cossies. He’s also made purses, wallets, and bags out of leather.

Justin has tattooed at several locations, but later learned that he didn’t like what went on in the tattoo parlors, so moved on. The family man wants to be known as a respectable person with a good reputation.  And, he looks forward to becoming involved in community organizations.
