Chris Von Bong
In 1997, Chris Von Bong started his apprenticeship and tattoo career in a busy downtown street-shop in Madison, Wisconsin. After five years, Chris made the decision to move to San Diego, California where he began working at a busy custom tattoo studio. This move provided Von Bong the opportunity to tattoo his own artwork exclusively and develop his style including elements from ‘Old School’, ‘Neo-American’, Japanese, Mexican, and lowbrow hotrod . Since 2009, Chris has been working at Chronic Tattoo and spends any spare moments which aren’t spent on his craft, enjoying time with wife Shawna, his dog Spike, and painting.
