John Millhouse Perfect Ink John Millhouse was a famous ink collector in the world of tattoos featured in conventions and magazines over the years. He had a body suit that evolved with dark imagery being the theme. One of John’s key goals was near perfect symmetry.  It strted with a small skull tattoo on the back of his neck and the theme grew from there.

At last count, he had 276 Skulls on his body. John had one artist do his entire body suit – Rick Harnowski of Tattoos by Rick.  Sadly, this tattoo celebrity passed away at the young age of 52 in 2008.

The body suit took  5 1/2 years to complete and  totaled 413 hours of work. Photos of John’s unique ink work have been printed in over  50 national magazines. In 2004 one of his photos won the Best of Photojournalism award for “Sturgis Tattooed Biker”.  People with a body suit like John’s is hard to find.  The paitence and planning involved take a unique personality.
