Corey was born into the wilds of Colorado in the early seventies. As a youth, he thrived on a steady diet of crawdad hunting, dirt bike riding, and comic book reading. A shy, bookish child, his life took a dramatic turn when he discovered the joy of wheels attached to wood. Little did he know that through the primitive timbered vehicle that is the skateboard, his future, as well as his flesh, would forever be altered. Having been engaged in the cause of the tattoo arts since 1994, glimpses of progress have begun to emerge. Through the generous and gifted teachings of his fellow tattooers, he continues his edifications through painting, drawing, and conjuring of inspiration. Steadfastly settled in the great Pacific North West, Corey thanks his lucky stars that he has found residence in the homey confines of Atlas Tattoo. Hallelujah!
