Puff Smith – Charlotte, NC Tattoo Artist

First of all, I’m not much of a writer and I am a pretty humble guy, so writing a Bio about myself is a nightmare. That said, my name is Eric Smith but practically everyone I know calls me Puff. I started drawing and doing art at a very young age, and I have always loved to draw and paint. I am thankful that I have been able to continue to do art as an adult. I have a deep appreciation for all art in any medium and have always felt the need to express myself through art. I began tattooing in 2000.


I am honored any time I am allowed to put art permanently into someone’s skin. Tattooing is an amazing and exciting process to me, and I enjoy tattooing many styles. I love to work in both color and black & grey. Realism, Japanese & Neo Traditional are a few styles I enjoy. I’m really into pop-culture, fantasy & horror. From beautiful to evil and everything in between, I just like to make cool looking, professional tattoos that will hold up well over time. Stop by the shop or call with questions, and I hope to do some art for you soon.
