About

Hello and welcome, my name is Benjamin DeWitt and I am a traveling tattooer based out of Central IL.

I am known for making bold emblematic work in the american traditional style, along with anything illustrated. I tattoo in many other styles and if there is something I can’t do, I know who can.

I’ve been tattooing in central IL and around the Continental US since 2011. I am a second generation tattooer. My mother, Janice Puckett, was a professional sign painter and she and my step father opened Gemini Tattoos in the mid-90s in the small town of Hillsboro, IL. I worked there until she passed in 2004. I spent some time traveling and making music and settled into an apprenticeship in Springfield in 2011. I learned how to tattoo under Jason Lee at Newage Tattoos and began branching out and traveling again with my craft in 2014.

I believe that I bring a unique, safe, and personal experience to tattooing. Not only have I spent time in some of the best tattoo shops across the country, but I also understand a level of personal nuance and trust that goes into making tattoos. thank you for the trust. I strive to maintain a level of professionalism honesty and inclusive environment that is welcome and safe for my clients.

You can catch me on the road, or book an appointment with me in Springfield, IL where I currently have studio space at Black Moon Tattoo. I also do walk-ins on Saturdays in Decatur, IL at Oakwood Tattoo when I am not on the road.
