Twenty eight years ago in Western Europe, becoming a tattoo artist took determination and bravado, especially for Mario Barth. Growing up in Austria, where tattooing was not just frowned upon but completely illegal, he came up through the underground.

Riding motorcycles and hanging out with a rough bunch, he learned the secrets of the trade in the dark shadows of the earth. Every piece of knowledge was earned through blood, sweat, and courage.

With a celebrity clientele including Lenny Kravitz, Sylvester Stallone, Tommy Lee and Usher to name a few, Mario owns four tattoo studios across three states; Mario Barth's Starlight Tattoo in Rochelle Park, NJ, in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas as well. The fourth studio and his latest venture, King Ink Foxwoods is at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Mario Barth is also the creator and founder of INTENZE Products, the world’s leading tattoo pigment manufacturer.
