TIM FORBUS

Tim Forbus was born in Zanzibar as his parents traveled the world with the military.  When he was a kid the family settled in the swamps of Louisiana where they lived off the land. Tim was taken in as a teenager by a Creole shaman who initiated him into the art of tattooing. Drawing from these early crude techniques, he expanded his tattooing capabilities through experimentation and travel. Now he's been tattooing professionally for 20 years and resides in the mountains of central Virginia.

Jacob Hockman is an artist from Woodstock, Virginia. He is a graduate of James Madison University where he studied graphic design. He began his tattooing career with the fine folks at Painted Lady Tattoos in Harrisonburg, but can now be found with the rapscallions of Acme Tattoo in historic downtown Staunton. He enjoys dabbling in different styles of tattooing but prefers bold, readable imagery that will confidently stand the test of time.
