Notch’s remarkable journey unfolds as a tattoo artist, author, actor, and philanthropist, captivating audiences worldwide with his unique artistic vision and profound contributions.
Tattoo Artistry and Innovation: At age 15, Notch embarked on a journey that would eventually solidify his status as a distinguished tattoo artist. His journey began in Los Angeles, where he honed his craft, specializing in Japanese-style tattoos that resonated deeply with his clientele. Unlike traditional tattoo studios, Notch’s revered workspace, Sacred Saint Studio, serves as a haven for those seeking one-of-a-kind, customized tattoo artistry.
Brandon’s Tattoo Journey: Professionally immersed in the art of tattooing since the fall of 1997, Brandon’s journey as an artist began in his early years. Despite a rebellious start, he found himself drawn to the world of tattooing without any concrete reason. Following a series of interconnected events, his aspiration was clear – to impact lives through his artistic expression. The spark ignited when he first encountered a vivid tattoo – an intricately detailed black and gray skull engulfed in red flames, etched on a man’s ribcage during his time in juvenile hall. This visual captured his imagination and spurred the decision to delve into tattooing as his calling. Driven by an unwavering determination, Brandon set out to master the craft, a passion that consumed his thoughts and efforts.
Upon his release from juvenile hall, he embarked on a journey of discovery, receiving tattoos from various artists to learn by observation. Each experience added to his knowledge, honing his techniques and artistic sensibilities. Charlie Roberts, unknowingly, played a significant role in shaping his early understanding. Concurrently, Brandon was engaged in architectural drawing, conceptual sketches, and mural painting, sharpening his creative prowess. A pivotal moment came when he encountered an advertisement for Dennis Dwyers’ tattoo machine kits, laying the foundation for his eventual career. With newfound equipment and the desire to learn, Brandon’s search for an apprenticeship led him to Diamond Dave Rothburg, owner of Body & Soul Tattoo in Sherman Oaks, California. His artistic journey officially commenced under Dave’s guidance.
Brandon’s relentless pursuit of knowledge led him to pursue formal education concurrently with his apprenticeship. His schedule was rigorous, working alongside his father, the illustrious architect Bert Notch, in the morning, apprenticing at the tattoo shop during the day, and attending art institutes at night. This grueling dedication bore fruit as he evolved into a working tattoo artist, making enough to sustain himself and secure a studio apartment. His story intertwined with travels, experiences, and learning curves, including a transformative period in Seattle, where he tattooed at various studios, soaked up lessons from experienced artists, and embraced the allure of being a roaming artist.
Returning to California, his journey continued as he ventured into a myriad of tattoo shops. From Blue Bird Tattoo in Pasadena, where he briefly worked beside Kat Von D, to owning his studio, Sacred Saint Studio, in Pasadena for five eventful years, Brandon’s story epitomized both triumphs and setbacks. The challenges he faced, including personal loss and financial struggles, fueled his growth, resilience, and reinvention.
Brandon’s tattooing adventure took him across different studios, cities, and even countries, imprinting his artistry on the global tapestry. He acknowledged the influences of mentors like tattoo artist English Craig and Dave Rothburg, the unwaivering support of his father, and the clients who entrusted him with their visions. His clients, in a true symbiotic relationship, played a crucial role in his creative process. Witnessing fellow artists push boundaries inspired him to continuously evolve his craft.
