Ben Grillo & his Amazing Tiny Tats

HT: How long would it take to do a bodysuit of lil’ tattoos?

BG: I’d probably end up being 70 years old if I started now.

HT: Do you worry about getting pigeonholed?

BG: Totally, it’s already happened and I find myself doing a lot of the same things over and over. Whereas my favorite kind of tattoo to do would be like old-school traditional, American traditional. But I don’t think that many people know that, or they think I only like to do small tattoos or fine-line black and gray.

People that want to get tattooed by me say, “I know how you like to do small tattoos or black and grey roses” and that’s not the case, not that I hate it, but I do like other styles too. It’s good to have variety instead of doing micro-tattoos or single-needle stuff all the time.
