If you’ve ever seen Dub Weir’s artwork and tattoos, you might think it’s the kind of stuff that comes straight out of a nightmare.
Like most other artists, Dub had been drawing and painting ever since he was a child. Since his father was an artist, constantly being surrounded by artwork in various mediums like paintings, sculptures, etc., you could say that Dub was destined to be an artist.
In fact, before he ever started his career as a tattoo artist, Dub had originally studied motion picture production in college, and had even participated in producing several independent films and directing an award-winning short film.
His affinity towards all things artistic including movies, other illustrators, antique photos, random internet images, dreams and nightmares, all inspire him to create and to continue creating.
Dub eventually found his way into the tattoo industry in 2002, as Paolo’s first apprentice at Divinity Tattoo in Phoenix. Dub mentions that if it wasn’t for his mentor Paolo, he doesn’t think he’d even be a tattoo artist today (so thanks, Paolo!).
In the future, Dub wants to keep tattooing for as long as he can. But he’d also like to practice different types of artwork as well, such as illustrating books and graphic novels, and even getting back into film.
