Super Geek and tattoo extraordinaire Chris 51 interview from Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con 2016.
You may know Chris 51 from the A&E show Epic Ink. You may have seen his famous work on bodies around the world. You may have even seen him in a heated discussion debating Star Wars. Chris 51 has had his famous tattoo work published in over 80 books and magazines globally. As one of the world’s most creative tattoo artists, you can find his column in multiple tattoo magazines each month. As an entrepreneur, Chris created Formula 51 Ink which has become one of the biggest tattoo ink companies ever. The man is fun, kind, a pop culture whore and one helluva creative genius.
Currently on a multi-city Geekster Ink Legends Tour, he’s recruiting some of the best tattoo artist nerds from around the world to hit comic con’s and give the comic con fans what they want – lifelong portable artwork.
Mash-up tattoos are his favorite type to do, combining two or more different pop culture universes into one tattoo. A perfect example can be found in the Prince / The Simpsons mashup he recently posted to his Instagram account.
