When Booth got his first tattoo, his daughter’s name, his interest was piqued. He wanted to learn more about what there was to the medium. He took the world of tattooing by storm with his formidable use of black and grey ink to depict demons, beasts, evil fetuses, and other nightmare-worthy visuals. It wasn’t long until a cult following developed. It swelled belly to include heavy metal rockers, musicians, actors, and other purveyors of the dark aesthetic.
