In a word, no. They make us look like kids. When you’re looking at a lot of tattoos you get a sense of “Oh, my God, I look like this guy!” Not necessarily. Some things that we’ve been seeing growing up in the tattoo culture have been incredibly realistic. Like the tattoo of a baby boomer. A tattoo designed to be worn for years. Another thing that’s really changing is the style that people are going for. When we started doing tattoos in 1996, people did what they wanted in the beginning. Then, after 1996, people started wanting to look at more realistic things, so now you have more “fashionable” and “cool” tattoos. You can have a nice design and then you put it on a t-shirt, with a button-up shirt, and it’s perfect.
Tell us about what made you decide to go with something that had a more ’90s vibe?
Well, I was a big fans of the 70s at the time, so I wanted something that reflected those years. We’ve been so lucky to work with some of the best designers in the world that make really cool, cool, cool, awesome pieces. It was really cool to be able to work with Jeffery A. Bower, who is a great designer, and it was fun to get to work with Rick and Scott. That was another big help there.
How do you stay current with the trends?
When we started, it was just a thing that we decided to do. We wanted the tattoo market to be a positive place. That was one of the reasons that The Stompers started. For us, the tattoo industry is a place to have fun and be creative, and we felt like we wanted to be a part of that, and that was one of the reasons why we put the word “Stompers” in front of our name. The second reason that helped out was when our first tattoo shop opened, you had all these artists with a lot of time on their hands who would do one of these, or you’d get something on an artist you liked. Once you’re in the industry, it just becomes a huge industry. You got to do so many artists that have time to put in work that you really need all the help. You can’t have enough time to do something, especially when you’re an artist who you just like getting tattoos. Then, you get in contact with some of these great design experts that are working
