With one older brother, Billy Bumps grew up in Aurora, IL and says there is nowhere he would rather live than sweet-home Chicago. A self-described lover-of-breaking-things, Billy's favorite toy growing up was a hammer and he could often be seen cruising around with one in hand.
Billy has been working at A+ for approximately 2.5 years and still sports his first tattoo "A little punk rock tattoo" of a skeleton with a mohawk that says "Death before Dishonor". He is best known for his black/grey and fine-line work and says his other favorite mediums are black and white pencil and pinstripe paint. Does he have a favorite quote? "Nope." He loves Levi's jeans and the movie Animal House and if you'd like to buy him a drink he'll take an Old Style. He cannot live without his skateboard, and prefers custom-made tattoo guns. Some of the people he looks up to, artists and otherwise, are Pint, Tony Uno, and A+ owner Kevin Starai. You can find him at guest spots on occasion at Timless Tattoo in Kansas City, Culture Shock in Lake Havasu, AZ or Body Armor in Kalamazoo MI.
