About Us

Mark Davern is a complete artist, not just a tattooist.  He has committed over 39 years to tattooing and elevating the level of artistry in the field.  Mark specializes in full custom work, portraits, and cover-ups, but whatever your tattoo dream may be, Mark can make it happen.  From the early days in Corpus Christi, TX  to the many years in western NY at Tattoos by Mark, and his most recent location in Southwest Florida as Mark Davern Tattoo, Inc.,  QUALITY has always been the standard.  He has clients that travel thousands of miles for their tattoos because they have complete faith in him and his skills.
His art is not limited to tattoos, though.  He is a sculptor and a painter, working with oils on canvas, large scale murals, and airbrushing custom vehicles.  Many a motorcycle or custom car cruising the southwest FL roads carries Mark’s art work.  Check out our Portfolios for examples of Mark’s artwork.

Mark is also spending some time with the oil paints and canvas painting Ballroom dancers. This branch of his artwork can be found under the name Paint the Floor. We have a couple of different websites to view this artwork.  www.paintthefloor.pixels.com and www.zazzle.com/paintthefloor .  Both have artwork for sale.
Heather Davern is the facilities manager at Mark Davern Tattoo.  She is Mark’s “Right-hand Man” (wife, too) and answers the phone,  makes appointments, guides potential clients through the decision making process and generally helps keep everything flowing smoothly.
Mark Davern Tattoo, Inc.  is located at 2270 Tamiami Trail (US41)  Port Charlotte, FL  33952.  Our studio hours are  Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri evenings from 6:30-10 pm.  Mark works by appointment only, and extends those hours as necessary.

Potential clients may stop by any time during our office hours to look at Mark’s portfolio, do research in our large collection of reference files and discuss their goals for their tattoo.
We look forward to working with you!
