Owner and Artist, Mark Bell is a graduate of Luther College and a former retirement plan administrator and college wrestling coach. He has been tattooing and piercing for over decade. Mark’s work has been featured in International Tattoo Art Magazine, Tattoo Flash Magazine, The Quad Cites Times, The Iowa City Press Citizen, the Cedar Rapids Gazette, as well as The River Cities Reader and has earned him a diverse and devoted clientele, ranging from schoolteachers and soccer moms as well as members of the NFL and an APC World Champion powerlifter who also holds multiple world records for her age group and weight class!! 

A true passion for art and a heart-felt desire to support local artists as well as to make art more accessible to the public led to the formation of the Indigo Art Gallery.
