Welcome to my site, and my life's work. I hope you may apprecaite it half as much as I appreciated the people and friends in my life who have let me put my art on their bodies. I am truly blessed and Lucky...
Chris 51 was born at the infamous Area 51 facility and has never outgrown his alien roots. He transplanted to Springfield, Oregon at a young age because of his insatiable quest to track down the true origins of The Simpsons, and it just felt like the right blue-collar, anti-establishment, quasi-trashy town for his soul to settle. He opened Area 51 Tattoo in 2003 and it forever changed the face of professional tattooing in the area, setting the standard of class and excellence.
His busy resume includes tattoo work that has been published over 800 times in magazines, books and television around the world. He created Formula 51 ink from scratch and turned it into one of the leading ink companies in the world. He writes monthly columns for three popular tattoo magazines. He is in pre-production of his own major-network television show. He teaches seminars on business, promotion and marketing around the globe, and is always excited to share his knowledge with younger artists and continue learning from older ones!
