Joe Rollins, known as Joe Tattoo11, has been getting tattoos since he was fifteen and has been giving tattoos since 2001. Joe says that traditionally, tattoo artists do an apprenticeship for one or two years to learn the craft. Joe does not specialize in any particular tattoo, but he enjoys creating military tattoos.
Des Cobb is 16 years old and is getting her second tattoo. Her first tattoo is on her lower back and says: “there’s no better friend than a sister.” Cobb says she’s getting “Stay Strong Believe in Yourself” on her forearm because she really likes tattoos. However, there are tiny scars are her forearm that may indicate signs of self-abuse, and this tattoo may help her heal.
