Born and raised in Gillette, Wyoming, Zachary (Zac) Webb has been an artist for as long as he can remember.
He grew up going to Sturgis Bike Week every single year, which is where he got his first tattoo in 2006. While talking to his tattoo artist about his interest in art and drawing, the artist suggested tattooing as a possible career choice. Shortly after in 2007, Zac was apprenticing under the instruction of Lisa Gross at Electric Colorland in downtown Gillette, WY.
But the road to getting his apprenticeship wasn’t ordinary. In fact, Lisa Gross told Zac that she wasn’t interested in having an apprentice at all. Zac wouldn’t accept “no” for an answer. Instead, he showed extreme perseverance by showing up almost every single day, grabbing a broom, mop, or anything that would make him useful. Eventually, Lisa invited him to watch her tattoo a client, welcoming him as her official apprentice.
As a full tattoo artist, Zac loves to create tattoos that invoke movement. He does this through mixing realism alongside various styles including art nouveau. Some of his favorite tattoos he’s completed include a number of birds, and anything he has had the opportunity to tattoo on his girlfriend. Zac loves to take on large projects, and wants to do more wildlife realism.
To keep his technique sharp, he’s constantly experimenting in painting and drawing, always trying to push his expertise and improve his overall abilities.
