About the artist
Tell us a bit about this design.
Well, I am a professional tattoo artist and I have always hated the "traditional" tattoo style. So I like to mess with it as much as possible. This is a Sailor Jerry design done in a sci-fi theme. We gots a "bird of prey" and dagger called a D'K TANG, and of course the classic font.
Where are you from?
Born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. In fact, my family is part of the reason Wisconsin is called the badger state. (long story)
I currently live in Minneapolis, MN.
What do you want TeeFury fans to know about you?
ummm.... Buy my shirt??
And, I'm awesome!!
What do you absolutely not want them to find out?
My nickname is Bleach. I got that from mopping a waxed floor with bleach, creating a chlorine gas which would have killed anyone if they inhaled it.... Floors were nice and white though!!
Name a few of your favorite things.
My three cats, my good friends, John cryer and Milla Jovovich!!!
J.C and M.J aren't my friends, I wish they were, but it sounded like I said they were. I meant them as well as my friends..
What kind of art did you make as a kid?
I drew nothing but Calvin and Hobbes , and Garfield.
What is your favorite thing about tattoos?
I love doing anything with shading! I can shade way better on skin then I ever could on paper!!
Spock vs. Captain Kirk: which would win the battle?
Duh! Vulcans have superior strength! Spock, all the way. Kirk was kind of a douche!
Describe your favorite shirt that you own, and why you like it so much.
I'm a huge movie nerd! It would be a toss up.
I have the shirt Val Kilmer wore in real genius that says " I (heart) toxic waist, and the medical shirt Cameron wore in Ferris Bueller's day off.
Which is better, gaming, reading, or watching movies? Name your favorite title in your chosen medium.
Not much of a gamer. Reading? What are books??!
Movies for sure. To name a favorite would be next to impossible... Ummm...... It's a mad mad mad mad world is definitely one of my all time favorites. Best cameo movie ever made!!
What inspires your work?
The stupider the better!!! Once I found out about tee fury, I was very excited! I love everything that ends up on there. All right up my alley!!
Any shout outs?
My boys at Aesthetic Apparatus, Capitol City Tattoo (Madison), and the two people most responsible for giving me the artistic gene, my dear late mother, Sandi Meinholz and my awesome dad Larry Temby!
