About

The Infamous Sting (no longer of Bremerhaven, Germany): Sting, an American-made ’59 Scorpio, has been tattooing professionally since 1981. Although he is basically self-taught, he credits conventions, endless seminars and tips from numerous colleagues for “being where he is today”. After running his Bremerhaven, Germany shop for over twenty years, he moved back to Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun in December of 2005. His nice little, hard-earned collection of trophies, plaques, awards and certificates decorated the studio which he opened the end of May 2006. He semi-retired and has worked guest spots and conventions since the summer of 2012. Sting! was made a life-time member of the Tattoo Club of Japan in 1982, has been an active member of the National Tattoo Association since 1984, joined the Alliance of Professional Tattooists in 1996 and was inducted into “Who is Who in Germany” in 2000. He recently received his 30-Year Member in Good Standing certificate from the National tattoo Association and is on the roll with #93. In 1977, while still in High School, he took Third Place in Mechanical Drawing at Chadron State College and was Editor of the school newspaper his senior year. He graduated as Valedictorian in 1978 and after giving Uncle Sam three years of his valuable time, he opted to study broadcasting while working in the computer section of the Arizona Department of Education. After that he opened a tattoo studio in Lincoln, Nebraska while working for various local radio stations. Then it was off to Germany, where he had been stationed during his Army career. In the late 80’s Sting! spent several years as German Representative for the European Tattoo Artists Association. In the mid-90’s he helped found the Deutsche Organisierte Taetowierer (German Organization of Tattooists) and served on the Board of Directors for two years. He has been featured in numerous newspapers, magazines and trade publications, the crown jewel… being selected for Easyrider’s Tattoo Dream Team1999! As mentioned, he is a Veteran, U.S. Army Intelligence (with a Top Secret Clearance). He received an Honorable Discharge as well as letters of Commendation in 1981. He speaks fluent German, can graciously embarrass himself in Korean and is now at a total loss in regards to Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. And, still no speaky espanolski.
