Steve Rowes

Tattoo Artist

My name is Steve Rowes, I hail from sunny Southern California in a big city outside of L.A  called Fontana.  I am the proud owner of Dark Hearts Tattoo, I been tattooing since 2002. My journey from then till now has been an amazing experience. I been drawing since I was a kid and haven’t stopped.
 I specialize in medium to large tattoos, I love to tattoo in black n grey and vibrant color,  my style of tattooing is a mix of Neo-traditional and realism. 
To schedule an appointment with me, I require an in-person consultation at my shop Dark Hearts Tattoo in Fontana. The best times for me to discuss your ideas is in the evening between Wed-Sat 7-9pm We must set up a consultation time through email before we meet in person that way we are both on the same page before we meet.  Before messaging me your ideas please keep in mind that I specialize in; Neo-Traditional, Realistic, Flowers, Bio-Mechanical, Skulls, Roses, Bold Colors, Smooth Black & Grey.  No Cover-ups or Fix-ups..

If your idea/design isn’t something that is my style I guarantee that I have an artist in my shop that will be able to bring your ideas to life. Please contact me and I will put you into contact with the artist that can assist you.

During our consultation, we will discuss your Tattoo Ideas, Size, Placement, Details and Pricing. I have a minimum price of $600 per tattoo. Depending on size, details, and placement; I will determine the price of your tattoo. I do medium/large tattoos only.

I will not do any Cover up tattoos or Fix ups, If we agree to set up an appointment I require a non-refundable $100-$200 deposit so that I can set a date for your tattoo appointment.

I require a $100-200 deposit so that we know you are serious about getting tattooed. If for any reason you can’t make your appointment, you must inform me  to reschedule 2-3 days before your appointment; via Phone or email.

Due to owning the shop and making sure it runs smoothly, I only tattoo 3 days a week; Thurs-Fri-Sat 2-9pm. I’m booking appointments 1-2 months in advance depending on my schedule.

Your deposit will be applied towards your tattoo the day of your appointment unless discussed with me during your consultation. Please email me before coming in for a consultation.

If you live 2 or more hours away please let me know.

Thank you!
