All Or Nothing Tattoo Artist: Dave Tedder


Dave began in the industry as a piercer in South Kakalac, as a way to break in to tattooing. He knew from the age of 10 years old that he was destined to tattoo. The only thing hindering Dave was trying to learn in a state that deemed tattooing illegal. Not wanting to learn bad habits, he decided to seek out a tattoo apprenticeship. Since piercing was not illegal in South Carolina he used it as a gateway into tattooing. Being a fast learner he was picked up by a high end shop in the busy tourist mecca Myrtle Beach.

Keeping true to his dreams he moved to Fort Lauderdale to forward his apprenticeship. Bouncing around between shops it took almost a year to find someone he felt comfortable learning from. He found his mentor in Holden Ritchison and the two became fast friends. Together they left Bulldog Tattoo to expand their artistic horizons at Babylon Tattoo. It was there that Dave was able to learn from three of Florida's finest tattoo artists. Dave took wisdom and experience from Novi Filopovich and John Coiro, as well as Holden. After finishing his apprenticeship, issues with family called him back home to South Carolina. His daily commute was to North Carolina, where tattooing was legal. He spent the next four years honing his skills in tattooing and ninjitsu, working in various shops throughout North Carolina, traveling to conventions, and selling flash. He was almost ready for his international debut.
