Tim’s Inspiration

Tim received his first tattoo when he was 17 years old. “I watched the guy do it and thought, man, I could do better than that,” he adds. He stated that just seeing the tattooist is what got him interested in tattooing. And with that, his hunt for another creative outlet, as well as a lifelong career, was gone.

Tim looked out for tattoo artists in the area to assist him in his training, but there were few available. Soon after, he ordered some tattoo supplies from a tattoo magazine and began practicing on a few buddies. Although it was not the proper manner, it got him in the door enough to show some of his work to his future mentor and teacher, Nick McCarty, who taught him the sacred art of tattooing the proper way.

Tim then set out to master all of the skills required to use the human body as a canvas. His work flows naturally on a person’s body. It’s all about connecting and designing that makes it work for him. “You’re learning anatomy, the art and history of tattooing, and how artworks with anatomy… like how it does stain the dermis, and how long does it last?” he says. “You have to be taught something for years to properly understand it.”
