Trent Charilas
Senior Artist
Expressive Ink – Randolph, NJ

Trent graduated in 2000 from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Bachelor Degree of Arts concentrated in Psychology with a minor in Art. He started tattooing and piercing on January 4th, 2004.

What started out as a general curiosity and a potential hobby/part time job evolved into a career and 2 tattoo and piercing studios with plans to continue growing. Taking a leap of faith, Trent left the corporate world and his other businesses behind to open his first studio in 2010.

Since 2004 he has tattooed throughout the US, in Greece and Spain. Being a father of 3 restricts travel these days but he still finds time to attend 3-4 US based conventions a year. Today, Trent primarily works out of the Randolph, NJ location and prefers to work on black and grey tattoos but he can absolutely handle any color projects you may have.
