I am Dr.Roach, aka "Abe".
I was born during a huge blizzard in Milwaukee, whilst the great comet Kahotek (don't ask) was at it's closest orbit to Earth.
After living in Milwaukee for 18 years (my last apartment was on the corner of 23rd and national), I migrated north to Oshkosh, and attended U.W.O. taking various art courses and basically wasting my money. After dropping out of the great Oshkosh art program, I worked at various odd and boring jobs, making a great name for myself as a prop welder/painter/construction laborer/cashier/environmental specialist/pimp.
I then attended F.V.T.C. to get my degree as a Microcomputer specialist. I dropped out after failing Algebra twice, and now have a student loan debt I have no intention of paying off, ever.
Since I've been an artist my entire life, and knew I could do a much better job than the crap I had gotten tattooed on myself, I decided to send away for some cheap Spaulding tattoo kit. This kit ended up being a bunch of substandard crap, but it got me started, and after a little while I was offered a job at "Daves Everlasting Marks" in Oshkosh. This was in the late 90's, after that my career took off, and I was offered job after job, two I accepted, the rest I declined.
Then after working with Dave for over a year @ Wicked Ink, Dave, Anthony and myself opened up the Flesh Chamber, and our great journey began.
I am 32 years old, although I get carded for cigs on a regular basis. I've been tattooing for 9 years, almost as long as I've been dating your mom. I am married, have 3 kids and own a home in Omro (which has tripled in population since I moved there, now we have 28 people!) I enjoy every style of tattooing, and specialize in Portraits, Black 'n' Grey, and bold full color work.
I usually work 2-3 tattoo conventions a year, and have won 18 trophies in the last 2 years. When I'm not working I like to develop my hand-eye-coordination skills thru frequent use of my PS2 and Xbox. (You might see me on Xbox Live under the name Drroachzilla420)
We run a fully custom studio, so whatever it is, we can design it for you. Our tattoos are designed exactly to your specifications, so we encourage you to challenge us. Tattooing involves never-ending growth in knowledge and skill, we thrive on doing the tattoos deemed "impossible" by other studios. If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about myself or the "FLESH CHAMBER" drop us an e-mail!
