Ted -- or "T", as his customers know him, has been an art enthusiast his whole life. His earliest memories are of using whatever was handy to draw on walls, etc..   When he was 7 and 8 his father had him pin striping cars in his auto body shop.  By the time he was 10 his grandmother started teaching him the art of tattooing.  For the last 50 years, Ted has tattooed literally coast-to-coast, and throughout the entire midwest.  Proficient in all aspects of the art world, Ted has done everything, including oil painting, pen and ink, chalk, woodcarving, glass etching, leather tooling, jewelry making, airbrushing, and pin striping, just to name a few.  But, tattooing has always been his first love and driving force.  Giving the everyday "Joe" or "Jane" quality art pieces at affordable prices is his goal. While specializing in 'cover ups' and 'portraits', there is nothing he can't duplicate or originate.
