I met John Meeks at Paranormal Fest in Seymour, IN last year. He is a very talented artist and a pleasure to chat with. I wanted to get to know John a little more and let the public get to know about him as well.
John is unable to remember when he started painting, he does know it was a t a very young age though. He began doing tattoos at the age of 17, which was kind of a joke on his parents that backfired, so John went with it. John says he doesn't have a favorite piece of art that he has done, but does favor the horror themed pieces he has done.
Having met John at Paranormal Fest I was curious as to why a tattooist would be there. John has been interested in the paranormal since he was very young. Maybe around the age of 5 or so. He used to see things all of the time and was never quite sure if he was dreaming or not.
If it were up to John, he would be a guest at as many conventions as he could. He does offer tattooing at the venues where it is allowed and legal, cost permitting of course. There a re a few social media sites where you can view John's work. The ever popular Facebook. There is also his store on Etsy for special orders.
If you in the market for some really cool art or in need of a new tattoo, please check out John and tell him Amy sent ya!
