Fred Pinckard's obsession with tattooing began at a very young age after seeing the old military tattoos on his grandfathers' forearm. The worn yet legible images solidified his fate and lifelong goal to become a tattooer. Finding an apprenticeship in Texas, where he learned tattooing the old way, making your tools that make your living, he sat out on his path. Now with 20+ years in the trade it's time to give back to the business that gave him everything.
Joshua Autrey had a strong art background and an attraction to the craft of tattooing, Josh began tattooing professionally in 2003. He was taught to make needles, pigment, and what constitutes a good tattoo from the very beginning. Josh ended up in Richmond, Virginia in 2009 and met Fred, eventually working together at the award-winning Salvation Tattoo Gallery.
Together they have co-founded Alliance Tattoo Supply and vowed to bring fellow tattooers nothing but the very best for supplies and equipment. For tattooers, by tattooers.
