Hi! I'm Eric B, I am a Tattooer at Skin Candy Tattoo in Oak Creek Wisconsin (practically Milwaukee).
I was born in Waukegan Illinois and started drawing constantly at a very early age. Some years later I earned my Associates Degree in Art at College of Lake County. It was at this point that I transferred to Northeastern Illinois University where I studied Art and Secondary Education. The goal then was to start a career as a highschool art teacher, however I soon realized that teaching was not for me. I dropped out after a year to pursue a career as a tattooer.
Many people thought I had lost my mind dropping out of school so close to the finish line but if you ask me it is the best decision I ever made. I always wanted to tattoo, I only went to college because I didn't think tattooing was a career that offered security. I soon discovered that I was very wrong and found a shop (Skin Candy Tattoo) willing to apprentice me. I learned many things from all of the tattooers working at Skin Candy; at the time, and im forever indebted to each and everyone of them for helping me along.
After some time I found myself taking walk-ins at the Racine Skin Candy location. I spent the next two years working out the kinks in my game before transfering to the Oak Creek Skin Candy. Im still currently working at the Oak Creek Skin Candy full time (im always here!). where I like to believe I have turned over a new leaf in abillity and dedication.
