While tattooing wasn't his first love, Tom tried his hand at a few other trades before realizing he was always an artist at heart. Attending FMU and graduating with a Graphic Arts Degree, Tom finally decided to embrace his passion and took the tattoo industry by the balls. With almost a decade of experience he is the new, welcomed addition to the 727 roster of excellence.
