Not every artist knows by the age of 13 that they would eventually become a tattooer, but Craig Brock did. Growing up on the southside of Atlanta, Craig spent more time skateboarding with his friends and drawing in class than doing actual schoolwork. Shortly after high school, he started his apprenticeship and began tattooing in 2009. In an effort to broaden his knowledge, Craig moved to Tampa Bay, focusing on the traditional values of tattooing and making tattoos that would stand the test of time. Eager to hone his craft, Craig moved once again, this time to Maryland, branching out from traditional tattoo styles and gaining a breadth of experience in tattoo techniques. After traveling most of his career, Craig was eager to return home to the Atlanta area to work in a studio with a positive environment and inspiring colleagues, finding both at Ink & Dagger Tattoo.
Craig still loves doing the traditional and neotraditional tattoos that started his career, but he also enjoys the intricacy of henna, mandala, geometric, and floral tattoos. Ideally his clients bring their own ideas and reference photos, while allowing him creative freedom to add his artistic influence to their next tattoo.
Outside of work, Craig enjoys making art, traveling, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
