Hard Knock Ink
I was hooked with my first tattoo...
Sure there have been some stumbling blocks and that first tattoo has since been covered up. But with that first tattoo I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I apprenticed for a little while. I did it after work and on weekends. The place was a 2 hour drive from my home, but I did it. I did it because I love tattooing. It’s my passion. It’s a journey I’ve been on for 15 years.
Thank God for those brave souls that let me practice my craft on them. Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today. People always ask ‘what’s your favorite style’ Truth is my favorite style is what I am working on that day. Because working in a small community I have to be willing and able to do whatever you - as the client dream up!
So at Hard Knock Ink my goal is to give you my best work in a clean, professional, environment. I am always pushing myself to be the best artist I can be.
I love what I do and I do what I love. When you’re ready for your first or next tattoo, give me an idea of what you want and I will help you arrive at the final design, plus guide you in making the best long term decision. - Phil Sonon (Owner and Artist at Hard Knock Ink)
