Josh May was born in Nashville, TN and raised here in Atlanta, GA.  Leaving Atlanta shortly after turning 18, May traveled the Southeast and Pacific Northwest, eventually landing in Missoula, MT, where he spent the next twelve years of his life enjoying the great outdoors, taking art classes, playing in various bands and learning to tattoo under the guidance of Aaron Campbell.       Josh began tattooing professionally in 2002 and eventually moved back to Atlanta where he works under the tutelage of Joe Vegas at Thunderbolt Tattoo. 

     Josh enjoys tattooing in several styles, and feels it his duty as a craftsman to be versatile and to "give the people what they want."  

     Josh has a particular fondness for Asian Art, especially that of Tibet, Japan and India.  Josh's favorite styles to tattoo are Traditional Japanese, Traditional American and Black & Gray.

     When not tattooing Josh can be found at home practicing one of his many hobbies such as building tattoo machines, riding motorcycles, gardening, bonsai, drawing, painting, sculpture, playing music, etc. etc
