All of the years of writing graffiti has definitely impacted Big Meas’ fascination with drawing letters. Lettering requires a certain skill that a lot of artists seem to never develop. He is not one of them. Big Meas, Lettering Tattoo Master, takes his lettering seriously and gives nothing less that 100% on each and every design. His smooth strokes and steady hand have earned him a fantastic reputation among his clients and his teammates for being a class act at what he does. It also has set the foundation for his own personal style, being recognized and appreciated in the tattoo industry far and wide!

Poch, a world renowned artist known throughout the industry for his captivating images that immerse the mind, body, and soul in a fusion of unparalleled realism creates an unsurpassed visual presentation that takes hold of the imagination and leaves the viewer demanding for more. His keen eye for detail exemplifies the true meaning of talent; each work of art produced pushes the envelope and challenges others to match his skill. Poch excels in color, black & grey, pinup, and portrait. However, realism is the art form that Poch genuinely loves and incorporates in all of his pieces. His talent truly shines when he is allowed to tattoo without any constraints, transforming a basic idea into a realistic masterpiece. Dedicating his life to his artwork, Poch has cemented his name in the industry as one of the frontrunners in realism as he constantly tests new approaches to advance his skills. Poch’s primary inspirations are his drive to make it in the tattoo industry and to create a name for himself. Artists that have committed themselves to the industry and constantly push art to the next level gives Poch a sense of determination and inspiration that far exceeds the norm. Tattooing is more than a profession for Poch, every image that he creates is an extension of himself. His devotion, permanently etched into the pieces he creates, resounds through every line. With his skills, dedication, and focus Poch will continue to strive for more and accept nothing but the best while he leaves the world wondering what stroke of genius he will achieve next. Poch is currently tattooing out of Artistic Element in Yucaipa, CA.

Deano is an artist, an avid scuba diver, an underwater photographer, and a realist. Born landlocked in Atlanta GA, his frequent trips to Florida’s panhandle as a child began his early fascination with the sea.Deano’s artistic talent has helped him slowly gain recognition, and experience invaluable opportunities. One of these amazing opportunities was assisting Wyland, America’s leading marine life artist, in painting two of Wyland’s famed Whaling Walls. This led to Wyland enlisting Deano to tattoo his entire left arm with Wyland’s own incredible artwork. Through these experiences Deano gained a new sense of accomplishment and a renewed passion for the sea.Through his photography, Deano strives to capture the beauty he encounters in the underwater world. His photos then become reference for his paintings as he realistically recreates his subject matter on canvas.Deano is a man on a mission. He wants the people who view his artwork to see exactly what he sees, and to share his love and respect for the underwater world and all it’s amazing creatures. Deano currently owns and operates Psycho Tattoo in Atlanta, GA.
