SHOW INFO

Indy Tattoo Expo

Indy Tattoo Expo is celebrating the history of tattooing and the growth of our Industry.

Now to introduce the man not only crazy enough to dream it, but passionate enough to chase down those dreams, the Indy Tattoo Expo creator, Chris Allen Taylor. Chris has been intrigued by the art of tattooing since the age of 10 when he met his would-be mentor, James “Rabbit’ Sanders. He began his apprenticeship under Rabbit in 1992, at the age of 15. After getting his first tattoo that same year, he never looked back.

Chris Taylor is not only a tattoo artist, but an enthusiast and avid collector of tattoo history. Throughout his 27 years in the industry, he has been lead by his vision of taking tattooing to the next level. Anyone who knows Chris, knows at the top of his list of must-do’s has always been to open his own shop, host a top-level tattoo expo, and create a tattoo history museum. He checked the first off the list in 2012 when he opened Indy’s premier tattoo and piercing studio, Ink Therapy.

You are now invited to join us at the INDY TATTOO EXPO, June 19th-21st, 2020 at the New Embassy Suites Hotel and Expo Center in Plainfield, IN, where Chris is bringing elite artists in from around the world for an epic weekend of live tattoo action and fulfills another “crazy” dream!

Indy Tattoo Expo

With over 30 yrs experience, this guy has collected knowledge from many great artists and shops; amassing a wide range of styles he can tattoo in, from soft black and grey to bold, bright color. Best known, however, for his clean, crisp linework and attention to detail.....JAMES "GYPSY" FINUF!!!!! @tattoosbygypsy
Gypsy remembers seeing his first tattoo very well. It was a bar and shield on his big brother's arm. From that point on, tattoos and tattooing became a kind of obsession. He has always loved art and has drawn pretty consistently for as long as he can remember. Then in 1988, he got his first tattoo done by Peggy Schwartz at Gil Montie's Ancient Art studio in Ft. Myers, Florida . He loved everything about the experience, from being in the environment, to seeing the absolute pleasure Peggy received in doing her "job". "I just knew that tattooing was for me."
The very first tattoo Gypsy did was in 1989, using a "machine" he made, and he is the first to admit it was NOT a great tattoo. He stuck to it though and did his first professional tattoo in 1992 at The Body Shop in Springfield, Illinois. He didn't really have what he would consider an actual apprenticeship, but "learned by leaps and bounds from Lonnie Scoggins".
He has worked in quite a few studios in his career. The most notable of those being The Body Shop, Dreamtime tattoos, and Fat Cats, all in Illinois, before making his way to Indiana to Midwest Tattoos, and now Co-owner of Prestige Body Arts. @prestigebodyarts Gypsy finds it too hard to pick just one style of tattooing that is his favorite. He appreciates the wide variety of styles present in tattooing and all the great artists that add their own flare to each of them.

Known for his stunning black and grey realism, specializing in portrait work, and with a penchant for all things macabre....ADAM STONER!!!!!! @adam_stoner

A combination of growing up with a heavily tattooed father and always having been an artist, tattooing just found Adam. "There is no other artistic application now that I love more." He apprenticed under Pete and Jamy Carreno at the Great American Tattoo Company at the age of 23, and a year and a half later, he became co-owner of the GATCO in Shelbyville with Jamy. A year after that, he was forced to close that location, which gave rise to his personal studio, The Rue Morgue, @theruemorguetattoogallery in Franklin, Indiana where he will be celebrating his 10th Tatday this coming March!
