Been tattooing since 1996.

Started out in Jersey.

Inspired by the Japanese tattoo lineage, Tibetan Thangka painting, and Art Nouveau.

Wonders why landlines and answering machines went the way of the dinosaurs.

Good to know Phill currently travels the globe tattooing at conventions and working as a guest artist, and is in the process of opening a new shop in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico called Rosa Negra Ink. He returns to Rising Tide several times per year, and often books out months in advance. Contact the shop to get on his U.S. schedule, or come to Mexico to get tattooed sooner!
