1. Oliver Peck’s Wiki-Like Bio: Troubled Formative Years

Born on 29 July 1971 in Texas, US, Oliver got into drawing and art at an early age. He was, by no means, conventional. In school, he’d attend whatever class he liked, and his skating skills landed him at odds with the football team of the school, who grew envious of him hogging all the attention.

As a result, he began to adopt a loner persona, in his teenage years, which further propelled him into drug habits. The law eventually got hold of him, leading to his incarceration.

After serving his jail sentence for drug peddling, he decided to turn his life around. He even began working on a conveyable factory. It was around this time; he developed a passion for tattooing.

At the age of 17, he tattooed his first piece on his own leg with ink spilled from a broken pen. For a real tattoo though, he lacked equipment and money to fund his budding passion. His artistic aspiration faced further hurdle as he neither had the prior training nor been to a tattoo shop.

Oliver’s professional career, however, wouldn’t begin until his introduction to the owner of the Pair-O-Dice tattoo, Stell who took him under his wings and trained him professionally.
