Shortly after getting his first tattoo—a piece of flash he picked off the wall—Joe saw someone else walking around with the same exact tattoo. At that moment he knew that something needed to be done and it altered his entire journey. After discovering heavy blackwork tattooing, Joe realized what he truly wanted. We spoke with Joe about his collection, the looks he gets when he’s out in public and the intricacies of well done blackwork.

Welcome to Heavily Inked. In our newest series, we’re going to speak one-on-one with tattoo collectors and artists about what it means to be a heavily inked person. We’ll get deep as we go through the motivations behind their tattoo choices, the way they’ve been treated in society and much more.
