What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2002 in Texas. How did you get into tattooing? Tattooing fascinated me from a young age. It was something that I'd known I wanted to pursue since I was in middle school. I still have a heap of drawings from that time, of snakes and daggers and other tattoo imagery.

What year did you start tattooing? I started working in 2002 in a tattoo studio as an apprentice for almost two years, studying and taking my first steps in tattooing. I always wanted to be involved with the tattoo scene, and the opportunity came to me by a friend who became my first tattoo teacher.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2004. How did you get into tattooing? Since I was a little child, I have always been drawing. As a teenager, I got into bands and the heavy metal scene of my hometown. So all my friends wanted tattoos to look cool and badass, and they didn't have any money for that, so they thought, "Hang on a minute—Joao can draw, he can tattoo us!" What was your first shop experience like?

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 1 994 back in Italy—that's where I'm originally from. About a year after I started, I moved to London in the U.K. That was to try to find a shop that could take me in. How did you get into tattooing?

What year did you start tattooing? I started in 2003 or 2004; I was in 12th grade. I was 18 and working at Red Lobster, and I really liked tattoos but I couldn't afford them. I always had the ability to draw—I wouldn't really have called myself an artist, but I had the ability.

What year did you start tattooing? 2007. How did you get into tattooing? I always loved tattoos, got my first one at 1 7, so it was a pretty natural transition to me. I just one day realized I wanted to be a tattooer, and the next day I went to a shop and said I wanted to learn to tattoo.

How has your art and style developed in the time since Freshly Inked last spoke with you? I feel like my artwork has become more complete and has more of my personal style. Every year I become more critical of the work that I'm doing and I keep trying to push myself to get better.

Shane O'Neill's Steel City was "beaming" with excitement. (Get it? Steel beam? Eh?) The Ink Master season 1 winner was found tattooing at his own convention in Pittsburgh this year. Let's just say that he has a soft heart for parents who want a piece of ink to represent their love for their child.

Every year for the last 1 2 years, Boston has hosted the annual Boston Tattoo Convention. With sponsors like Jägermeister and Pabst Blue Ribbon, there was tons of fun to be had by all. And with insanely talented artists like Jon Mesa, Timmy B., and Big Meas, even Luke Wessman had to stop by to investigate the proceedings.
