Aliases: Cory, Curby, Curbylicious, the Curbster, El Curbarino, His Royal Curbness
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Preferred styles: Black and grey, especially macabre, horror, and creepy things with a bio/textural flair; illustrative realism, tribal.
Enjoys: Strength training, comic books, horror movies, AD&D and other RPGs, meat.
Grinds my gears: The willingly ignorant, unimaginative, doing anything out of irony.
Bio: I was born in Biloxi Mississippi and through a series of quests, adventures, and escapades; I settled into Oregon and made it my home. More adventures ensued as I took on various jobs; process server, repo man, security guard, bouncer, dragon hunter, line cook. I got my first tattoo in 2003 and immediately fell in love with every part of the process, to the point that by 2004, I was tattooing. I bounced around a bit, here in Oregon, then Floriduh. Oregon kept calling, so I made my return in 2010 and started working at the High Priestess Corvallis. After a year, the powers that be opened the shop in Salem and I jumped at the chance to work in the town I settled in. I have loved the last two years and am looking forward to as many as they’ll keep me around for.
Tidbit: I am an avid scotch drinker and love talking about whisky and gin.
Extra tidbit: I have a tattoo on the inside of my bottom lip that reads “dirty” due to my love of offensive humor, profanity, and because I was bored that one day.
Extra special tidbit: Secretly, I may look all big and scary, but on the inside I am a cuddly muffin.
