Ben Grillo & his Amazing Tiny Tats

HT: You don’t seem afraid at all… Do you worry about how they will age or heal?

BG: Well, I pretty much warn everybody, the smaller it is, the harder its gonna read, especially the older it gets. That’s just like any tattoo but more-so the smaller it gets. I try to tattoo it in such a way that it will stay sharp and looking good for as long as possible. But no matter what, they’re gonna eventually turn to shit.

HT: Do you think you would not be able to do these if you weren’t also good at portraits?

BG: I actually did these before I started doing portraits.
