Tattooist & Owner
Rev has been in the industry for over ten years, starting out in Tulsa when tattooing was still struggling for legislation. Even then he was not underground, he was working for T-town Tattoo when it was under its original owner. Rev was the secretary for the Oklahoma Body Arts Coalition when he was twenty, an organization which lobbied successfully for the decriminalization of the tattoo industry ending the forty year prohibition on tattooing. This organization authored the regulations adopted by lawmakers when the bill was drafted. Rev still holds the original notebook in which he recorded the minutes of this coalition with the standards and practices still in use today. He does not consider himself specifically suited to any one style of art, rather he enjoys diversity. Bring him your ideas and references if you have them and collaborate with him on your next tattoo.
