Oliver Peck, judge of Ink Master, is an artist whose whole life revolves around tattooing. He is co-owner of Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas, TX and the owner of True Tattoo located in Hollywood, CA.
I am a 26 year student and practitioner of Japanese traditional tattooing. It is a very deep and complex form. The stories and motifs must be in HARMONY, the designs and their placements must be CORRECT, and the rules of the form must be followed. It would be my honor to help you achieve each of these unique attributes of the JAPANESE TRADITIONAL TATTOO!
Joe focuses on American Traditional, Japanese, and Black and Gray tattoo styles. He has been a tattooer at Elm Street Tattoo since 2012. Now he primarily tattoos out of the private studio at Heart in Hand Gallery.
