To help promote the culture we’ve brought together a collective of tattooers, creatives, musicians, and many more to represent InkAddict worldwide. Our IA Nation members are out there doing awesome things to positively engage their communities and we wanted to share them with you .

BOBBY O'SHEA | @bobbyosheatattoos
Bobby is a 28 year old tattoo artist working at Bodies Illustrated Tattoo Inc. in Charlotte North Carolina. He’s purely a tattoo artist at heart and can’t remember ever wanting to be anything else but an artist. Everything is a canvas to Bobby and he spends most of his time tattooing and drawing. Bobby’s first tattoo was at 18 when he was accepted into art school, it was roses for his mom which he admits might be cheesy but they are classic. All of his tattoos hold meaning, some mark significant life and career paths while others were done out of appreciation for another artist's work. Bobby discovered us a few years ago at a tattoo convention and fell in love with the style, fit, and what we represent. Follow him on Instagram to see posts about living a positive life and of course all things art.
Bobby is wearing the Chief Lightweight Men's Zip Hoodie.
SAMANTHA COMBS | @samanthaa_combs
Samantha heard about us from our friends at Electric Chair Tattoo in Flint and cemented us in her mind after attending the Motor City Tattoo Expo this year. This 20 year old from Grand Blanc Michigan is currently a dancer in Detroit while going to school for esthetics. She wants to expand her modeling portfolio as well, so she occasionally models for local photographers and cinematographers. Samantha’s first tattoo says “Live Fearlessly” in her grandmother’s handwriting. It’s located behind her ear as she wasn’t sure then if she wanted to be heavily tattooed or not. That quickly changed as she now gets 2-3 tattoos a month, most being done in traditional style with a lot of flowers. While Samantha favors the traditional style she has recently become interested in portraits, she loves the detail and color they involve. Samantha seeks out adventure, in the last year alone she’s gone skydiving in California, fishing in Florida, and toured tons of buildings in New York City. She’ll grab friends and jump in her car for a road trip if she comes across food on Instagram that looks too good to pass up. Follow her on Instagram to see pole tricks, modeling photos, tattoos, and travel pictures.

NATHANIEL KIPLINGER | @nathanielkiplinger
Nathaniel, or as we refer to him around the office, Kip, is a 30 year old from Hazel Park Michigan. Nathaniel first heard about us from a job posting and he’s been a staple here ever since. He is our Director of eCommerce Management which means he deals with our social media advertisements, customer experience, SEO, and analytics. Nathaniel’s first tattoo at 18 was, in his words, a garbage outline of a star and blobby lettering of his mother’s maiden name. He’s since had it covered up. One of Nathaniel’s favorite artists, Matthew Lambdin, has done both of his larger shoulder pieces. One shoulder is a tribute to his grandfather who was a crane boom operator and motorcycle club leader with a signature helmet design. The mandala design includes aspects from the helmet design including a donkey, his handle, ‘Sonic Boomer,’ and the family name. The other shoulder is a fox adorned in treasures and a dead, propped up rabbit. For Nathaniel this one symbolizes that if you are decisive and take action you are rewarded but if you hesitate in cowardice you’re already dead. His favorite aspect of this tattoo is that Matt added a visible anus to the rabbit. Nathaniel has many hobbies but loves spending his time playing massive multiplayer online and role playing games. He can often be heard bragging that he has over a year's worth of in game hours on one of his World of Warcraft characters. Follow him for a good time.
