Chad Koeplinger Tattoo Artist Interview Video

Chad Koeplinger is currently setting the tattoo world ablaze. He has found his own way in this business full of people who are busy ripping off the latest thing and having no abilities. These people are probably looking at Chad's tattoos. I can't even count how many times I have seen rip offs of his tattoos. I don't think it even bothers him. He has a very kind energy that you can easily pick up on, but don't be fooled he is an intense personality, he knows what he wants and is capable of getting it.

This man has traveled so much it's mind boggling. He touches on it in the interview and you get the feeling it is a bit much, I love the sheets comment. Chad is a very skilled tattooer with great originality that is rooted in the correct tradition that allows his tattoos to flourish with great style and still be timeless.

We did this interview at the Bay Area Tattoo Convention which is at the SFO airport right before Halloween. I had been trying to do one with him for about a year and finally brought it up when we both had time to do it.

Hope this finds you all well, thanks to Chad and thanks to you for watching this. -Scott

Another great interview, thanks Scott.

Chad is one of the people who taught me that it's important that we try to be be a decent human being as well as a decent tattooer.

I also learned a lot about the importance of the tattoo experience after getting tattooed by Chad. I don't mean that the client should listen to whatever music they choose and be fed grapes. I love every tattoo he did for me, as much for the tattoo as for the time he was tattooing.
