    • When I first saw you sat on the chair and thought you were getting tattoos. Oh darn! you didn’t get it, just sat there to pretend it.. LOL… I have one on my left top chest, that’s nothing.. Very old since 1982, haha

  • Did you see my tattoo on my back at World Deaf Expo Deaf Nation in Las Vegas? I had my name tattooed on my back in ASL handshape. I believe Deaf Nation did film my back out in the hallway in the hotel right out of the expo. Let me know thanks. S-A-N-D-R-A

  • I want to say I saw Steve yesterday, I got a new tattoo! First of all I’m in awe of this experience, communicating with an artist WITHOUT barriers. He did SEE what I wanted. The best experience ever.

    He is truly passionate in his work as a deaf tattooist. I’m absolutely excited to work with him again in near future (who can have just one tattoo?? haha).

  • Y’all, I was very impressed to see another deaf tattoo artist video. it pleased me since I’ve became a deaf tattooist in Jacksonville, Florida.

    I have more informations about other deaf tattooists, its about over 5 people.

    so please, Joel, put the show on us as if you’re looking for some entertainment, maybe crazy πŸ™‚

  • also, Steve Ropp, you have done very awesome job. I’m very impressed with your artwork what and who you tattooed with.

    I hope one day I will meet you and get another inked from you. I’m a tattoo freak!
