Jeff Ziozios



My name is Jeff Ziozios. I have been a tattoo and body piercing artist since 1998. I am originally from Midland, Michigan, went to school for Art at Delta College in Bay City Michigan, and headed to California for a few crazy music filled years. I worked a bunch of crappy jobs for quite a few years, and found my career when I started tattooing at Heritage Tattoo in Bay City (thanks Dave you the man, I learned a lot from you, and respect you more than you know). I helped open Heritage Tattoo of Midland, where I was the manager for about 5 years. My friend, John Cole, was tattooing at Phat Katz tattoo in Ybor City, Florida. I came down to visit him and loved the sun and sand in Florida. So I moved to Tampa in 2004 and worked out of the same shop until June of 2012 when Phat Katz closed its doors. I liked the location so much that I decided to pursue my dream and opened Bay City Tattoos Inc in the same Ybor City location. I am excited to be living my dream of owning my own tattoo shop and look forward to continuing to “make your body art”.

When I’m not tattooing I’m spending time with my beautiful wife (I’ll always feel like a newlywed with her) spending time with our fuzzy kids, out at the beach, or on a motorcycle. Movies and music are the fill ins of my life but I love the extreme too. I’ve jumped out of airplanes, white water rafted, but I love my Busa most of all … 205mph that’s fun….bring on the beach, sunrise and sunset (especially the sunset with cold drinks and good friends). My Harley-Davidson Softail deluxe is my newest addition to the family along with a little French bulldog named Roxie to match the Harley, in color and exhaust fumes.
