2023 Inked Originals winner

Geoff Ratzlaff

At a young age, this architectural technologist found inspiration in the tattoos of his three older brothers, which ultimately led him to acquire his own ink. Geoff's body art narrates the story of his family's evolution from the turbulent times of the Russian Revolution to the present day, skillfully encapsulating the essence of this human experience through the lens of dark realism.

We want to extend our appreciation to everyone who supported New Freedom Project by participating in this year's competition! This important organization is more than a non-profit: It’s a mission — to mentor inmates during the reentry process through peer-to-peer relationships, vocational training, and services that protect the community and inspire dignity by empowering the innate goodness in every human being.
