Tattoo artist Melanie Morreale (also known as 'Mel') is also the owner at Rite of Passage, but above all else considers herself an artist.  She attended art school in the 1990's, and has been a professional tattoo artist for over 15 years now. From a very young age her family and friends have known her for her passion for being creative.  She loves all types of artistic expression including making stained glass, and doing photography. She has done all types of tattooing and has a reputation of providing a professional, friendly and clean approach to the art form. She really enjoys technical tattooing most of all. In 2004 she also started working for a dermatology group in the Rochester, NY region.  She is capable and qualified to do reconstructive tattooing which includes camouflage, areola repigmentation, eyebrows, eyeliner etc. which is a relatively unique skill set in the region.   ​For a free consultation with Melanie, or any of our other artist, contact Rite Of Passage Tattoo today  at (585) 742-2280  and/or simply stop in during our regular hours of operations as listed below to set up an appointment.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and we hope to see you soon.

Tattoo artist Colin Day is from the Rochester, NY area, but moved away in 2001 to go to art school in Pittsburgh PA. for graphic design and illustration. After a few semesters at art school he decided graphic design was not for him. He got into tattooing in 2002 on the south side of Pittsburgh through a well established tattoo artist friend of his. over the next few years he tattooed on and off as he was traveling a lot at that time. in 2010 he stopped traveling and started to tattoo more and has done well over a thousand tattoos…by 2012 he had moved back to rochester and soon after was working at Rite Of Passage, Victor, NY.

Tattoo Artist Deanna Murphy  (in her own words) ~ I have been a part of the team at Rite of Passage Tattoo in Victor, NY since 2018. I started out as an apprentice and since graduated as a full fledged tattoo artist. Art has been a love of mine since I can remember. Tattooing has been a passion I’ve persued since I was 13 years old. This is a lifestyle I will continue to push and better myself in everyday. I specialize in color work, specifically illustrative designs. However, I also enjoy Black and Grey, Watercolor, New School and American Traditional . Being able to bring the clients idea to life by giving them a permanent piece of art they can always enjoy, is why I love what I do. I will forever be thankful to be apart of this industry.

Tattoo apprentice artist Joe D’Amico grew up in Rochester, NY and attended the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio from 2004 -2008. He specializes in realism since he began to draw, using black and white charcoal the earlier years of his life. He later transitioned to permanent markers as a challenge to himself, once the ink was on the paper there was no fixing or repair, which helped me become a better artist. Since the age of 12 it has been his  dream to become a tattoo artist. Of all the mediums he's worked in, he finds tattooing the most interesting and fascinating because it is essentially a permanent piece of work on another person’s body, and this work will age along with themselves. As his tattoo portfolio expands with all different styles of form and color, he would eventually like to specialize in portrait work.
