Bio: Also known as the "Alpha Geek", Chris 51 has helped change the face of geek-culture tattooing. From creating his own reality TV show Epic Ink on A&E, having his own ink company, creating the largest tattoo tour in the world, he has solidified himself as the trailblazer in pop culture tattooing.
Chris has written six books on everything from an autobiography, comics, poetry, a football trivia book, and even children's books.
After appearing as a celebrity tattoo artist at over 200 comic & entertainment cons, Chris 51 has decided it's time to step on the other side of the curtain and produce his own — Headbangers Con. It is the world's first and only con dedicated to heavy metal culture.
Look for Chris guesting frequently at the Geeksterink Tattoo Shop, as he can't seem to stay too far away from his good friends there!
