James Haun is a veteran tattoo artist of 16 years and multi media artist/musician who originally hails from the west coast. A 4-year stint in the Army left James in the DC area, after which he began pursuing a career in tattooing. James worked in many shops in the metro area before establishing and co-owning his own tattoo shop in 2001 in Leesburg, VA. Finally in his own shop, James established himself as a versatile and talented custom tattoo artist.
In 2010 James decided he needed a change of scenery and he wanted to make a move that would allow him to push his art, both on skin and canvas to new heights. Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings was a natural fit for this custom tattoo artist and he is now a strong member of the Fatty’s crew.
James specializes in many different styles of tattooing and his artwork has been featured in magazines, tour posters, t-shirts, and advertisements. He enjoys translating his client’s ideas and concepts into the tattoo of their dreams. He can be found at Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
"So where do we start? I remember when we did The Dirt, the Mötley Crüe book, I was interviewed at The Grand Havana Room in Beverly Hills. A lot of people think I didn't get to say much in The Dirt. It's probably true. I didn't read it. I'm not that big a talker. Some people can f*ckin' talk ... eat up all the oxygen in a room in no time flat. I don't tend to run my mouth. It's b*llshit. All those years in rehab and counseling--the talking cure? I can't say I really got that much out of it. All that cure and I should be cured by now, don't you think? All this talking...
So forgive me if it's a bit hard for me to slice open a vein and let my blood run red all over this page for you. I'll fight you or I'll f*ck you but chances are I'll be hard pressed to sit there and talk to you.
War stories. War wounds. I know, I know. Old rock stars fall hard. I'm forty-nine years old. I'm five-foot-nine, 170. The spandex is over. I've had three plastic surgeries. Still, who do you think gets laid more, me or you? But time does change a man. I ain't twenty-one anymore.
It's a miracle we survived at all. A bottle of Jack Daniel's and uncooked hot dogs do not make for a particularly well-balanced diet. We are all very lucky we didn't kill ourselves. It might look like we were trying to do that but speaking for myself, death was never my intent. I just wanted to feel good, you know? I was just looking for that kick, that high...
These days I've got businesses to run. I like the action. Something to get your heart pumping. Healthier than a syringe full of cocaine powder like I was doing back in '81 with my girlfriend Lovey, that's for sure...
William Grimshaw was a tattoo artist who apparently operated in the Norfolk, Virginia area during the 1940s and 50s. Little is known of him, including which Grimshaw family line he descended from. According to Lyle Tuttle, Grimshaw was reported to be an English immigrant. Grimshaw's work is well known in the "tattoo world", and examples are found in several books on tattooing and on the Internet.
Thanks go to Lyle Tuttle for providing photos and other material that has added greatly to the "story" of William. Lyle also pointed out the error in the identification of William Grimshaw in the book by Jaguer (described further down on this webpage. Lyle is a leading expert in the world of tattooing; biographical material on him is provided below on this webpage.
Two pictures of William Grimshaw, both provided by Lyle Tuttle, are shown below. As Lyle has observed, it appears that the photos were taken in the same timeframe, although there are slight differences in William's shorts in the two pictures. Note the extensive tattoo artwork everywhere from the neck down.
