A Memorial To our Founder, In Memory of Porkchop

From the heart of Sevierville, Tennessee, emerged an artist of extraordinary talent, Porkchop. His artistic journey began in 2000 at The Body Shop in Pigeon Forge, marking the start of a remarkable tattooing career. With dedication and skill, he became a prominent figure in the tattoo community, known for his exceptional portraits and technical expertise.

Porkchop's work, celebrated internationally, graced the skin of many, including celebrities. His artistry found its way into numerous magazines, capturing the admiration of both peers and fans. Beyond his artistic prowess, Porkchop was committed to creating a welcoming, professional, and respectful environment for his clients, ensuring each tattoo was a masterpiece in its own right.

In 2009, he embraced a new chapter in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where his talents flourished at Elite Ink and later at Elite Ink of Florence. For over two decades, Porkchop's hands weaved beauty and joy into the lives of those he touched through his art.

His passion extended beyond tattoos; he was a versatile artist, adept in various styles, from custom tattoos to paintings. Each piece he created was not just art; it was a part of him, a symbol of his dedication to his craft, his family, and his faith.

Porkchop's legacy is not just in the art he left behind, but in the joy, he brought to people's lives, the memories he inked on skin, and the love he had for his family. He strove to be the best in his field and as a family man, inspired every day by his love for them and God.

As we remember Porkchop, we celebrate not just a talented artist, but a man who left an indelible mark on the world, one beautiful tattoo at a time. His art lives on, a testament to his skill, passion, and the lives he touched.
