Bob Roberts:
“Bob was one of the only tattoo guys around in 1983. He was in Hollywood and he was tattooing all the punk rock stars & stray cats. We'd go out there, me and my friends, we would go out there before the punk rock shows. My buddies would get tattoo'd. I think Bob's was the first time I embraced colored tattoos. Bob's shop, to this day, is just covered in hand-painted tattoos. He's drawn every design on the wall. He's hand-watercolored them. I think because I was so young when I walked into his shop I really saw the beauty of what a tattoo could be.
