Raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Clinton Lee got his first taste of the tattoo business on an Elementary school playground. A local gas station vending machine provided young Clinton with an endless supply of temporary tattoos and he would adorn the arms of his classmates for lunch money. As an adult, he pursued art from a more high-minded perspective, earning a Batchelor’s degree in Fine Arts with a focus on oil painting and portraiture. Clinton primarily works in the Ornamental Blackwork and American Traditional styles, focusing on classic imagery, bold line work and tattoos made to stand the test of time. It’s crucial for him that a tattoo lasts well into the future. He does both large-scale and smaller one shot pieces, employing iconic imagery and displaying it in a vintage light.
*Clinton is currently traveling but will be back in the shop permanently as of mid September.
