His piles of currency feature many of the traditional tattoo symbols we are accustom to: skulls, religious art, guns, roses. Other pieces have adeptly cut script with sayings like “Thank you, Jesus” and “The Thrill is Gone.” Only adding to the raw nature of his work: it’s technically illegal to destroy or deface currency.
