Episode 062 - Steve Lemak

The return of my favorite tattoo artist, Mr. Steve Lemak! Steve is the owner of The Quillian in Allentown, Pa. I first introduced him to you back in Episode 020. That interview took place during one of his appointments, and my goal there was to give you an idea of the conversations that take place in a tattoo shop. I received a lot of positive feedback, and I was eager to have Steve on again for a one on one interview. My son and I met Steve in a local diner for lunch, and we had another great conversation. His Skindustry Expo 2012 is coming up in the next few weeks, and the timing felt right. We talked about what it was like to set the Expo in motion, his reasons for doing it, and his focus on making it an event that people want to come back to year after year. We also talked about his life, the impact of the economy on the tattoo world, and politics. Steve is such an intelligent guy, and always keeps things interesting.  Talking with him is one of the things that I look forward to the most when I have work done at his shop. On top of that, he is a fantastic artist that keeps you involved in every step of the tattoo process. Skindustry Expo 2012 takes place on from 3/30-4/1.

Episode 020 - Steve Lemak

I have something fun and a little different for Episode 020. Steve Lemak is the owner of The Quillian located in Allentown PA. He has been my tattoo artist of choice for six years. He does amazing work and he is great to be around. These are important traits to consider when looking for someone to permanently alter your appearance, and Steve delivers. He and I clicked from our first meeting. Some of my appointments with him have lasted over 3 hours at a time, and he always keeps the conversation flowing. He has opinions on music, politics, history, books...the list goes on and on. I couldn't wait to have him as a guest. We met while he was doing a chest piece on Justin, who is one of his other long time customers. Justin was very cool, and I was thankful that he was willing to share his time with me. Steve and I cover a lot of ground during this interview. You will learn about his background, the importance that he places on a clean environment at the shop, and how he got his start in the business. Here is a glimpse into what a tattoo appointment sounds like in a world class shop.  *Pain not included   Please visit Steve online at http://www.thequillian.com/. Enjoy!!!!
