Seems that all regions in the US had a fellow like Bert Grimm, Cap, Jerry, Huck or Tuttle, that led the way for American tattoo artist. I am just gonna say it I think Bert is the best and heavy line work and Americana designs are timeless. Some day I will have a Grimm style back piece and I will rule the lands. Until then I will imagine a time when men were men and true craftsman were few and far between. The Homeward Bound back piece makes we want some work done right fucking now. So just to clear it up the midwest has brought you real choppers, real tattoo artist, real bad weather and real car people since longer then you and I have been here.
