Artists: Scott Terry
What year did you start tattooing: 2002
Do you have any special training: I graduated from special effects make-up school.
Tell us about the style of your work: I tend to draw in a new school style having grown up on saturday morning cartoons and Disney movies. But I tend to tattoo more realism than anything else anymore.
Conventions usually worked: I've worked up and down the east coast from Tampa, Baltimore, Wildwood, Atlantic City, Philadelphia and Inked out NJ.
Where did you apprentice?: I apprenticed at Norristown Tattoo under Shane Munce.
What tattoo artist do you most admire: There are so many from the new shool artists like Tony Ciavarro and Joe Capobianco, Jesse Smith, Frank Lanatra to obvious people like Nikko Hurtado and Nick Baxter. But I also love Phil Garcia's work as well as the Kern brothers and Mike Devries, Carl Grace, Bob Tyrell, the list just goes on and on.
Before someone gets a tattoo what advice do you give them?: Think! Think about what is it that you want to have on you for the rest of YOUR life. I do so many cover ups that when someone comes in with a less then stellar idea I really want them to think about it.
How did you get into tattooing: I needed a creative outlet after graduating from make-up school and working in a factory. I was bored and needed to create something.
What inspires you to be an artist: I find inspiration from just about anything. Music, films, books, my friends and family. Life is a trip, if you can't find something that inspires you I feel bad for ya.
What kind of tattoos do you look forward to doing: Anything that I can sink my teeth into, things that challenge me to work hard and puts me outside my comfort zone.
Is there a tattoo that you haven't done yet that you are dying to do: Yeah I have yet to do a Nightmare Before Christmas tattoo and I'm kinda bummed about it.
