Billy Toler

Billy tattoos at Cherry Bomb Tattoos in New Port Richey, Florida.

What is your all-time favorite movie?
Mac and Me, just for the fact of how goddamn bad it is.

What are you passionate about?
Sleeping, Eating, Tattooing, Working out, Qualling, Partying… that’s about it. ohhh and sometimes I get my shred on.

Coffee, tea or Coca-Cola?
Coke Zero – because I’m watching my figure…. #fatkidproblems

What has Influenced your career?
I’d have to say my extreme fear of having a real 9 to 5 type job…I’m just not cut out for that lol
Joking aside I’m heavily influenced by several artists I’ve met/ or just internet stalked. They continue to push me to try harder everyday.

What is your morning routine?
I usually press snooze on my alarm a minimum of 5 times before forcing myself out of bed. Which is followed up with the 3 S’s… then it’s GTL for the rest of the day -Gym, Tattoo, Laundry.

If you could interview one person, who would it be and why?
hmmm. probably Salvador Dali (let’s just pretend he’s still alive)… I mean who wouldn’t want a chance to pick his brain?!

Best advise you can give a new apprentice:
Take this shit serious and don’t just add to the growing amount of douche bags out there only tattooing to seem “cool” and make some quick cash… There’s much more to it. Sorry to break it ya.

For reals though- Draw your ass off and put in work… there’s a limitless amount of influential artists out there to look up to, do your research, if you work as hard as they have maybe one day you’ll influence another young artist.
