Russ Abbott works a tattoo gun as an extension of his hand, weaving away at intricate designs influenced by a love for antique aesthetics. He is a man defined by his individual work – evidenced through Ink & Dagger, his highly successful tattoo parlor in Decatur, Georgia. Given his profile, serious dedication to craft, and obsession with a finished product, it seems only fitting that artistic supplies are what make Abbott tick. In this edition of Essentials, Abbott takes us through what he needs to get through a day. Beyond a quality pair of jeans and a shirt on his back, it’s easy to see that to Abbott, the tools of expression are everything.
