A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away Bobby stared drawing as a kid, emulating the styles of his favourite comic book artist and bands record albums. He knew from a young age he always wanted to do something creative with his life. He entered art school a couple years after he graduated high school and that kind of gave him the bug even more to pursue an art based career. Bobby didn’t find tattooing until a bit later on but once he did all of of his passions as a kid (the dark imagery on metal and punk albums and the dynamic drawing style of comics) all collided. He’s been tattooing now for about 13 years and it’s been one the best choices he’s made because not only he can fallow his passion for creating and drawing but it’s constantly pushing him to do better. He’s always loved sci fi and fantasy art and he’s been really trying to push his career as a tattooist into that realm lately. He can now say he almost owes everything he has in his life because of comics and the sci fi/horror/and fantasy movies he grew up on. Without their influence he honestly wouldn’t know where he would be.
Emily Shoichet has been tattooing for the past 15 years here in Victoria. Colorful, illustrative tattoos are the main focus of her work, but she won’t turn away from the clean simplicity of black work either. A self-identifying nerd who enjoys a variety of fandoms from Buffy to D&D, Dr. Who to Steven Universe, Harry Potter and so many more in between. She is very excited to be joining the Nerd City crew at this years’ Capital City Comic Con.
