Travis King

I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, mostly focused on realism. I remember being told by several artists that if you can do realism you can do anything.


I taught myself how to airbrush and started working in a local mall. While there I painted t-shirts, cars, bikes, murals in houses and on RV’s and on people. My attitude was “if it would hold still long enough, I’d paint it.” During this time I was exposed to my biggest influences in art, Sorayama, Olivia, and H.R. Giger.   


In the fall of 1997, I started out in a small shop in Indiana. In 1999, I moved to Louisville and started working at Body Art Emporium.


In late November of 2000 I entered my first competition and won my first award. Since then I have won over 100 awards including 20 National Tattoo Association Convention awards. I’m most proud of these because people from all over the world come to compete.


I opened Prophecy Ink in April of 2012, after Body Art Emporium closed in 2011.
