Notes about the artist: 
When Vince was a teenager he was fascinated with tattoos, getting his first tattoo when he was only 15-years-old, something he does not recommend. The fascination did not stop there. He began collecting tattoo magazines. Ten years after getting his first tattoo, he decided to get a professional one from Chico in Allen Park, Michigan. This experience re-ignited his interest in tattoos, â€śChico inspired me to take a chance at a new career.â€ť In 2005, he was finally given the opportunity to be an apprentice under Mark and John Madigan at Fat Brothers Tattoos in Highland, Michigan. â€śThe more I learned, the more I wanted to learn.â€ť When the opportunity came, he packed up and headed down to Georgia. â€śI began working here at All or Nothing in October of 2008, and the learning process is continuously evolving. I get to work with awesome artists everyday and constantly strive to improve myself in every way.”
