Tattoo Artist & Founder
Ron Pichardo, native to Philadelphia, is artist, founder and CEO of Swagga House Tattoo in Elkins Park, Pa. Along with 10 years experience in the tattoo industry, Ron is also an urban mixed media artist with a background in the fashion and graphic design industries. His brand officially began in 2010 as a small store-front clothing boutique, Swagga House, in North Philadelphia where custom Pichardo brand apparel was exclusively created and sold by Ron himself. Sometime after launching his clothing boutique, Ron was unexpectedly prompted to try his hand at tattooing. To his amazement there was an instantaneous connection to the art form, and so he eventually made the transformative decision to launch his career as a tattoo artist, opening up a small private studio, Swagga House Tattoo in Philadelphia. 10 years later, Swagga House Tattoo has moved to Elkins Park, Pa and now grown to become a multi-artist studio with other amazingly talented individuals who are just as passionate about the art form.

Josh knew at a young age that he wanted his life to be surrounded by art from watching his father draw and witnessing the development of his cousin's painting and tattooing career.

At 22, Josh has now become a versatile tattoo artist by gaining knowledge from different artists and picking up techniques along the way. He is grateful for the opportunities he has had in his career and is eager to learn more about the craft he loves the most.
