When it comes to Tattoo Collecting Teddyboy Greg is by far one of the most reconizable collectors around with award winning Work by some of the worlds best Tattoo Artist Including Rick Walters, Nikko Hurtado, Roman Abrego, Fernie Andrade and Bob Tyrrell just to name A few. Although it seem’s that a lot of people disagree with TeddyBoy Greg and Hate on him when it comes to his beliefs but when it comes to his artwork it’s nothing but respect.
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him after meeting him at Nikko Hurtados first solo art show Renati back in october 2013. I had seen him In A few Tattoo Magazines and I watched the progression of his face tattoos from only having a few to being completely coverd.
His facial tatoos are primarly traditional style tattoos wich are all flawless, while his head, neck and torso are covered with some of the most Amazing Black and Grey Portraits ever, while his back is covered with some of the most amazing color portraits ever.
Majority of his Tattoos pay homage to his Rock N Roll Icons and lifestyle. Teddy Boy Greg is an American Ted and Rockabilly is his lifestyle and he does not take kindly to posers and Image whores who don’t have A clue of what the essence and soul of being A Rockabilly, A Ted or A Cosh boy is about.
He lives, eat’s, sleeps and breathes the rockabilly lifestyle.
He is A barber by trade and take’s a lot of pride in his work aswell as his tattoo collection. To me he is truly inspiring being A former addict just like myself and overcoming the odds and becoming A professional Barber.I’m glad I can call him my friend. He is really A cool and funny guy once you get to know him. Alot of people like to judge A book by it’s cover and that happens to him alot. But All I have to say about that is if you have haters you must be doing something right and there’s no such thing A bad publicity. So either way Love him or hate him he’s not going anywhere. Keep an I eye out for him and his amazing tattoo collection and also make sure to follow him Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and subscribe to his Youtube channel.
