Joe Black has always had the inkling for art and tattoos specifically. He was based in the US for eight years — running his own businesses including tattoo shops. Sadly, it wasn’t smooth sailing, and in 2004, his shops closed down. He went back to the Philippines, and started all over again. Armed with a passion for the art of tattooing, he got his life back together, and challenged himself to become the best tattoo artist. When she met Ann Savage, everything fell into place, and all his failures turned into successes. Currently, Joe and Ann are full-time tattoo artists and owners of the Ann Savage Tattoo Shop.
