About Joseph Wittenberg
There’s only two men in these here parts brave enough to work with such a feisty female. Joseph Wittenberg (Grizzly Joe) is one (Shaun Kyle being the other…)! He grew up in the LA area and moved to San Diego in 1997 to pursue his degree in Art from San Diego State University. After graduating in 2002, he started tattooing at a local college area shop and has been tattooing in San Diego since. He even earned a spot as a top 5 San Diego tattoo artist in 2009 and 2010 according to the City Beat Readers Poll!
His art tends to focus on nature and organic forms, trying to incorporate the natural beauty found in everything. Joseph spends a lot of time outdoors and this tends to be reflected in his artwork. When not tattooing and painting, he can be found spending time with his family, hiking, camping, playing music, or playing ice hockey. When tattooing, his natural calm and easygoing personality are a comfort to customers and a life saver to fellow artists!
