Steve Tefft

Tattoo Artist

Steve Tefft
Groton, CT
Owner/Artist at 12 Tattoos (www.12tattoos.com)
17 years experience

A self-confessed "party guy," Steve is renowned for his personal sense of style including a wardrobe of designer shirts. Interested in both art and tattoos since he was a teenager, Steve began his career "scratching" out of his house before getting an apprenticeship and has worked hard ever since to perfect his craft, and has since opened his own shop 12 Tattoos in Groton, CT. He believes his confidence, working well under pressure and the ability to quickly adapt to any situation gives him an edge versus the competition on the show. Steve specializes in black and grey tattoos and is best known for his realistic portraits and horror imagery and prides himself on being able to complete his work extremely fast.
