GFM: What keeps you going other than tattooing?

OPI: Family is forever. They are what drives me.

GFM: What are some upcoming projects that you are working on? IOPI: 'm working on expanding to a new tattoo shop.

GFM: What is some advice you would give future entrepreneurs? OPI: To keep God first and always believe in yourself. Never get comfortable and always be improving.

GFM: What hidden talents do you have?

OPI: I don't have any, I put it all out there. I am not at my peak because everything I know is self taught and learned the hard way. Every artist has their own style and someday I will master my style and who knows what I may uncover.

GFM: Any long term goals in the tattoo world?

OPI: I hope to one day own several tattoo shops along the east coast and to have On Point Ink not only be a tattoo shop but a brand.

GFM: If you could describe your art in one word, what would it be?

OPI: Boundless

GFM: What do you enjoy doing when you're not tattooing people?

OPI: Hands down.....spending time with family and friends, preferably while fishing.

GFM: How many tattoos do you have?

OPI: We don't get tatts......we get pieces, ya dig.

GFM: What is your favorite tattoo on your body?

OPI: I have a chest piece of a large finger print that reads "My finger print never fades from the lives I touch". You see the finished product of a tattoo session but what you don't see is the laughs, the stories, the advise, etc. Tattooing is therapy for some.
