Every tattoo artist has that moment once they understand that inking people for any living is what they would like to do with the lives. For some, it starts at an early age from your infatuation with tattoos, others see it once they realize they are doing more doodling than homework in college. For Lloyd Parrack, that moment came when he made a decision to follow his father's longstanding advice and never live the remainder of his life like a mechanic.
" I was raised focusing on cars, and I‘d been just over it" says, Parrack, who now owns Gypsy Rose Tattoo, 1505 E. Thomas Rd., in Tattoo Expo Phoenix 2015. "My dad always said he did not want me to labor as hard as he did for the remainder of my life, so I wanted to locate something else".
Parrack, who has got now been sober for five years, found his opening to pursue the career he'd always wanted to undertake after his drinking caused a run-in using the law approximately 20 years back.
"I'd just gotten from jail for any DUI, and my good friend Rich Dohoney, who had been already a tattoo artist, called me and asked me if I wanted to reach on the road trip for 6 months", Parrack says. He said we'd start in Salt Lake City, and I'd learn how to either pierce or tattoo, and I'd do this for the remainder of the trip.
Though Parrack, now 39, was initially a little hesitant to throw away his career fixing cars and relationship with his then-girlfriend, after each day back at work like a mechanic, he realized it was eventually a chance he couldn't pass up.
After understanding how to pierce during the course around six weeks in Salt Lake City, Parrack traveled with Dohoney as much as Washington, D. C. over subsequent five months, piercing and tattooing in many cities on the way.

That trip took place almost 20 years ago. Parrack, who had been born and raised inside the Valley, has since established himself as one among Arizona's finest tattooers for traditional and neo-traditional ink. Although traditional tattoo artists confine themselves to some small palette filled with strong old-school colors, Parrack is not afraid to interrupt out some hues that others might not aspire to.
