Known Alias: Tony Touch, Tony Touché, Tony the Pepperoni Pony (in a bad italian accent)
Languages spoken: English, Scottish, Cockney, and broken Trucker lingo
Professions: Tattoo artist, rattle-can graffiti artist, competitive Skee-ball player
Tattoo Strong points: Illustrative, cartoony characters, small objects on a big scale, colorful cute silliness, neo-traditional.
Tattoo Weaknesses: Realistic black and grey, tribal, portraits, traditional Japanese, traditional Americana, gory stuff.
Professional Strong points: Working with clients face to face, to get them a tattoo better than they expected. Easy to get along with, and not too rough around the edges. Great with 1st timers, as well as old pros.
Professional Weaknesses: Returning phone calls, and quick email responses. I’m bad at using technology for grounds of communication. Also, I casually use swears. Sorry about that, I’m working on not swearing so much, but it’s so F*’n hard.
Tattoo Promises: Any tattoo I draw for you, will be custom and a one of a kind for you, and you alone. If you have a picture of exactly what you want, give me some wiggle room, and we'll make it even better. Lastly, if I know an artist that may accomplish what you want better than I, I will let you know. The only time my ego will get outta control, is when I'm playing you in ping-pong. Seriously, I'll mess you up something fierce in some table tennis.
Loves: My baby boy Shepard Stanley, Snowboarding, paintball, cheesy jokes, traveling, my kick ass wife, movie quoting, Legos, roller coasters, stand up comedy, video games, making videos, playing golf (not watching golf on TV though).
Hates: Raw tomatoes, reality shows, wedding DJ's, and dip spit not in a bottle but on the sidewalk, 2 inches from my goddamn shoe. Eck!
Wanna Get Tattooed By Me?!: Please stop in the shop while I’m working. It’s so much easier to get us both on the same page for your design face to face. Swing by any time Wednesday thru Saturday, noon-8ish. You can call or email but you may wanna re-read Professional Weaknesses above. Seriously, I am the worst with phone calls.
