View George’s Tattoos
I’m George Bishop, 31 years old. I was born and raised in New Jersey and have been living in California about ten years now. I performed my first tattoo with a single needle homemade machine when I was 18 and loved it! I’ve been hooked to it ever since.
Five years ago my awesome wife Jennifer surprised me with a tattoo kit for Christmas. I taught myself how to use the professional machine with my very own two legs. I noticed these machines were a hundred times easier than the homemade single needle machines I grew up with.
In 2011 I went to Blue Tattoo Café and met Mason. I showed him my portfolio and drawings and he was impressed enough to give me an apprenticeship. I was already tattooing my friends by the third day.
Having an artistic background since childhood helps me to be confident with every tattoo I perform. I love being apart of the industry and have a blast getting to meet many new clients every day. Its music to my ears hearing how happy I’ve made somebody with a tattoo and that I’ve exceeded their expectations. That’s what makes tattooing a labor of love for me.
Tattooing is one of the greatest blessings in my life now. Thanks to God, Jesus, my wife, my mentor Mason, my family and my friends. Tattooing helps me feel better when I’m sick, lifts me up when I’m feeling down and tattoo brings me the greatest joy when it helps the ones I tattoo as well.
View Dennis’s Tattoos
A native of San Diego, California, tattoo artist Dennis Miller has been drawing and creating art his entire life.
Dennis first became interested in tattooing when he found a homemade tattoo kit at his house. After several attempts on himself and a few lucky friends, Dennis decided to turn his new found art into a career. “I began an apprenticeship in March of 2000 at a local shop named Streamline Tattoo. It was a real apprenticeship in every scope of the word.” Soon after the end of his apprenticeship, Dennis hit the road and worked at various shops around San Diego.
With the lure of rock & roll, Dennis set out to New Jersey for a while. Where he worked with the son of Ernie Caraffa, Paul Davis, “who knew how to tattoo like crazy”. Dennis has also done guest spots in Alabama and at Bullhead City in Arizona.
After taking a year and a half hiatus, Dennis is back in San Diego. “I find myself at Blue Tattoo, constantly honing what skills I got daily. I am very passionate about the tattoos I do and I put every effort to do the best possible job I can.”
