Joey's tattooing style has developed alongside a lifelong love affair with the art form. The first tattoo he ever saw--a clown tearing through the gut of a Jones Beachgoer--sparked curiosity that quickly developed into a deep passion for body art. He draws inspiration from a variety of sources, such as contemporary graphic design and graffiti. He counts the work of street artist Greg “Craola” Simkins as a heavy influence in many of his new school style pieces. Like Simkins, Joey warps iconic images of Americana into tattoos . Joey has created his own brand of black line work he's dubbed “paint drop design.” This style gives the appearance of wet paint dripping off of traditional images, adding a new dimension to a classic technique. Joey considers himself lucky to be doing what he loves: sharing his eye-catching body art with the world.
