1. Where did the name Green Bay Bully come from? Do you have super powers?
A. The bully name came originally from the broad street bullies, a rapper by the name of beanie sigel went by the nick name "broad street bully." Green Bay was one of the streets I grew up on hence, "greenbaybully".
A. Oh man, I originally got into tattooing at a young age. My uncle tattooed when I was younger, I was always fascinated with the process. Well, let me tell a story quick. When I was 14 years old my uncle through a tattoo party on New Year's Eve, of course me being into the idea of tattoos I kept asking him to tattoo me. He kept saying, "No, if I tattoo you your mom will kill me." I persisted and kept asking until finally he said, "Alright, I'm not gonna tattoo you, but I'll leave my shit out and if you end up with a tattoo in the morning, I'll tell your mom you stole my shit." I of course was down, he preceded to ask me what I wanted, at the time tupac's "hit em up" was playing, I had said "I want 2pac," he then asked me if I had a reference? My response was "I know what that motha fucka looks like!" That is the first tattoo I had done and received on myself. Haha you live and learn. I first started really getting into shops around my early twenties. I guess I started more of a traditional way by going in and showing artwork to see if I could get an apprenticeship, haha I guess it's a bit of a long story. We might have to save that for another time.
A. Thank you, I appreciate the compliment. As for the style I do, a lot of times people give me ideas and I just kind of role with it and see what comes out. I also try to draw everyday to grow as an artist, so I always have pre-drawn ideas ready to go. I think it is good to have both at the ready.
A. Haha not a question that I expected, but as for jar jar in an entertainment aspect I can see how it can be appealing to the masses, but as for me I always had hoped Darth maul would have beheaded him. So I got a tattoo on my leg dedicated to that vision haha.
A. I am traveling a little over the next couple months, I will be doing the villain arts Tampa tattoo convention and the west Chester tattoo convention in October.
A. I have been involved with projects with memento publishings and out of step books in the past, it's always an honor to be asked to be a part of something with so many talented artists. I have a few that people can laugh at when they compare mine to the real artists in the project.
A. The dirty D will be seeing my in October, #letsparty.
