About the Author:

GARY LEE HEARD has operated a photographic art studio in Rochester, New York, for the past 20 years. Combining photography, darkroom manipulation, airbrushing, and computer techniques, he has created a hybrid illustration style called "Leetype." Heard’s images have appeared on the pages of Architectural Digest, Esquire, and Rolling Stone. He has also produced CD cover art for Jeff Tyzik, John Ellison, Donny Gerrard, Doug Flutie Gang, and Metallica.

DAVID CULTRARA started out pedaling body jewelry from his van in 1998, going door-to-door across 35 states. By 2002, Cultrara was the owner of four tattoo and body piercing shops in New York State and the co-owner of 10 other shops in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse. He has experienced everything there is in the world of body art—and has the scars to prove it.
