Very honored to be asked to do an interview for Kerrang Magazine and proud to be along side my homie London Reese as well. The article never mentions our views on each other, but if they would have asked me I would have loved to tell them how great of a guy London is and how hard he works as well. Proud to call him a friend and he is a great tattooer and painter and great inspiration. Thank you London, Thank you Kerrang Magazine, and most importantly Thank you to everyone who has collected a tattoo from me along the way, in a band or not, I appreciate you all very much!
I began tattooing around August of 2002 and life has not been the same ever since. I knew from that moment forward my life would never be the same. I love this opportunity that I've been given to make something new for someone different every day and appreciate all the people I've met and become friends with along the way as well. I love collecting tattoos and what they have done for me on a personal level and I love trying to give people a positive, life changing piece of art to wear and gain confidence with in life. It's more than just a tattoo and Thank You for choosing me!
The next few tattoos are all older tattoos that I made over 10 years ago, each of these
at points in my life that I feel like were very monumental for me.
This tattoo of an asian influenced phoenix was tattooed by myself, Craig Beasley sometime around the year of 2004/2005 and it took about 20 or so hours to make this tattoo. I really enjoyed the experience of making this tattoo, I learned a lot during the process, and this tattoo has since become somewhat of a common subject for me to tattoo for many other people as well, but never the same.
This Lion was another tattoo I made a long time ago, I think around the year 2006 or so. Another tattoo in which I learned a lot from and had a lot of fun with. We made this tattoo while traveling on tour with Fall Out Boy, it was done on a really good guy that was working with the band at the time.
This tattoo tells the Egyptian story of Osiris, Isis, and Seth. I made this tattoo around the year 2006 and learned quite a lot during this process. Not only about art and tattooing, but myself and people, as well as growth with your client and the entire process. I really enjoy the style and concept of this.
