Greenhorn here...

Itís a pleasure to meet all of you!! Iím new to this Skoolie lifestyle and itís taken me a few years to get my footing finally and start my conversion build. I honestly have ZERO experience in this field so Iím sure Iíll make PLENTY of mistakes along the way but thats the learning process Iíve realized. Lol! Iím converting my 1995 GMC G3500 Thomas Minotaur into a Mobile Tattoo Studio where I can work Bike Rallyís, Festivals and Events across the country in the comforts of my own bus while maintaining a sterile field within my working area so everything MUST be able to be wiped down of any blood borne pathogens after every tattoo is applied. Thanks for reading and I welcome any and all constructive criticism. 🙏🏻👊🙏🏻

That is an interesting use of the bus. Please do yourself a favor and talk it over with an insurance agent. Using the bus as a mobile tatoo parlor probably makes it a commercial vehicle and would need appropriate insurance.


Give Kelly Newsome at Allstate in Leesburg @ 352-326-9300. Let her know what your total plan is and see if she can help.

I do appointment only and usually handle my bookings through Facebook Messenger. Look up my name on FB and check out my work. “Bill Keithley”.

I currently have insurance through Progressive and have had no issues so far, but I didn’t even take the fact that it could become a commercial vehicle once used for tattooing. Thanks for the advice. ��

Your work looks really great man! I dig it!
I grew up with a guy who's now semi-famous in the tattoo world. Stefan Meisse. https://www.instagram.com/stefanmeisse/?hl=en

Some friend of mine just paid TOP dollar for some reall shitty tattoos at some place in downtown Orlando.
