My name is Lee Greene I was born and raised in the back woods of Shelby NC. For as long as I can remember I have been into art. I was exposed to tattoos at a young age. My pawpaw had those old navy tattoos and he would let me color them in. I thought that was the coolest thing ever. At the ripe old age of 17, I got my first tattoo. I collected a few tattoos over the next couple of years and just a lot of hanging out at the only tattoo shop in Shelby.
In 2001 I asked my good friend and mentor Chris Vennekamp if I could give it a try. My world got turned upside down. I quit my job and jumped in with both feet. When Chris decided to close his shop I went to work for a street shop. I worked there for a while then decided I wanted more. I wanted to work with some people who I could really learn something from. I jumped around from shop to shop for a few years.
Now I have found my way to Charlotte, NC at Immortal Images and have been here over ten years now. These guys are very inspirational and I’m honored to be here.
I enjoy all styles of tattooing. I have a strong interest in modern traditional and Japanese styles. I love tattooing custom designs for each client in either color or black and gray.
Feel free to stop by and chat with me anytime so we can come up with your own personal design. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas.
I want to thank my family for standing behind me with all the chaos that tattooing puts us through. We have three kids that keep me on my toes.
