Jimmy Gee of Tempe's No Regrets Tattoo Parlor on How Graffiti and Skateboarding Led Him to Tattooing
Josh Chesler Jimmy Gee is quickly becoming one of Tempe's top young tattooers at No Regrets Tattoo Parlor.
Growing up, Jimmy Gee never really thought he'd be a tattoo artist.
Sure, he liked to draw, but never anything more serious than a design for a skateboard deck or a quick sketch in his notebook at school. Then he found a new hobby, and he started to take his art a little more seriously.
"I got into graffiti, and that's really where I learned to create something," Gee says. "Before that, it was nothing past skateboard shit. I haven't been active in years, but graffiti is where I learned about structure and how to put stuff together."
