Life doesn’t exactly suck when you live in Las Vegas, play in a long-running kick-ass punk band, make your living at your own tattoo studio, parlay a cause célèbre from a reality show into creative artistic visual and liquid opportunities, tending to a variety of business endeavors, while juggling the balancing act and priorities of fatherhood. Some say ‘tsunami’, others say Dirk Vermins’ world. A life like a hot-rod V8 engine, always rumbling, and when he’s wide open, all heads turn. With a pedigree like this, and the hard miles exposed to the best visuals punk rock, hot rods and the tattoo worlds have to offer, add decades of art and life experiences, he’s developed a wide range of styles, from traditional to portrait, and he’s the go-to guy for your cover-up work. Unique Las Vegas OG’s don’t come much more stalwart than a cat like this. If ya gonna get marked, and get marked up really good by the best tatt-cats in the biz’, you gotta have a Dirk Vermin piece. You just gotta.
