Masters of Ink

The Simple team spent an awesome afternoon recently with Timmy and the crew from Timmy Tattoo. Located in a bustling metro area on Long Island, we were interested to see these artists at work.

As an artist, my life and how I interact with the world is shaped by my art. In the tattoo shop everyday we put our art onto people. Tattooing is an interesting art form, you can spend hours working on a piece and once the customer walks out the door you may never see them again. The tattoo becomes a part of them and your artwork will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

One of the great things about tattooing is you get to meet people from all walks of life, you never know who will walk through the door. Each person has their own story, a reason they are seeking a tattoo to mark something that is going on in their life.

Most of the team and I find that Simple has the comfort factor that gets us through the day since we're on our feet so much. They've got an easy look that suits our individual style.
