Interview by Ryan Spangler.
Growing up in Omaha, I heard Dick Warsocki's name often when the conversation turned to tattooing. I kinda knew Dick as this guy that worked at Tattooland and came back to town.
Growing up, I remember seeing Dick's script on customers, and it blew me away. As circumstance would have it, I never met Dick until a few years ago. It was through the help of my good friend Chad Elsasser that I got to hang out with Dick and interview him with Chad.
Dick is an honest guy, that loves tattooing and art in general. He's full of great stories about his life and tattooing, and I figured people would enjoy them. Dick was kind enough to welcome Chad and myself into his home to spend the morning hanging out and interviewing him.
Dick's insights and kind demeanor make me proud to be a tattooer.
