What’s up? I’m Ryan. I’m 6’3” tall, 230 lbs, athletic, no kids. I’m Italian. I love sports, traveling and spending time with friends and family.

On the street I’m a professional tattoo artist/fine artist. I draw, paint and do anything creative. Since being incarcerated I have continued painting and selling my art through local galleries. I’ve been published multiple times in “Tattoo”, “Skin & Ink”, “Flash”, “Savage” and a few other magazines. I’m currently working on self-publishing an Art book. I also do a lot of work with leather. Belts, wallets, purses and anything else you can think of.

As to why I’m in prison…When I was 21 a girl came into the shop I worked at. A few weeks later we hooked up and after that I was arrested. The police explained she had been on the run and underage even using her sister’s ID at the shop. It was an idiotic mistake but I take full responsibility. It’s embarrassing but I am an upfront and honest guy.

I have a dog named Godzilla that lives in a crate in my cell and goes wherever I go. The prison I’m at raises “Leader dogs for the Blind”. I got him when he was 8 weeks and will have him till he’s 14 months when he will leave for phase II of his training.

I’m up for release in early 2017. IDK if I will stay in Iowa or where I want to go. Regardless, it never hurts to meet some cool new people. If you open an account on and ADD ME we can talk on there or you can write the old fashioned way. Whatever is easier. 

My institution requires your return address on the envelope or it will usually be returned.  If your address isn’t clear or you forget to put it at all; like somebody from New Zealand did recently, there is no way for me to write back.  Hope to hear from you.
