Tattoo Artists

Terry Mayo - View Tattoo Gallery - Email Artist

The Owner and one of CAT TATTOO's multi-award winning artists, Terry Mayo's interest in the creative arts and what would later develop into a successful Tattoo career began at an early age. Always drawing as opposed to playing with toys and dabbling in usual child activity, Terry was first exposed to the industry during the sixth grade.At the time Terry's attention was focused on the artwork of various artists who would inspire him to try different styles, some of these being CARtoons Magazine, (A Big Daddy Ed Roth publication) which advertised tattoo products in the back. "Along with Ed Roth's work it was the most edgy art I had ever seen." And it was these sort of magazine's along with comic book artist legends such as Frank Miller, Todd McFarlane, Sam Kieth, Jae Lee, and Frank Frazetta that later influenced Terry's own understanding of what looked on the 'edge'. With all this material to inspire his creativity, Terry ironically first began making money off his talents by receiving lunch money as payment for temporary tattoos and line work on kids at school, and thus Terry continued on to pursue and use his artistic abilities in several ways, "During High School I was hooked on comics. Learning to draw the human form doing most anything, I tried to break into the industry for years. Doing a small body of work, including a 40+ page comic book of which the pages where fully painted, but it never got me where I wanted to be." Tattooing out of his house at age 20 after being exposed to the Tattoo world but a year prior, Terry managed to finally get his foot in the door with the photos and full color comic book as examples of his artistic talents. Landing a job at Tigger's, for the next 5 years Terry would learn many lessons about the industry, and tattooing in general. Using everything he'd picked up from childhood to working in Tigger's shop, Terry Mayo opened CAT TATTOO at age 26. "I wanted my studio to excel beyond what the present studios had to offer. CAT TATTOO was the first all custom tattoo studio in the Dallas, FT. Worth Metroplex. Spending two decades promoting and building my studio's reputation, CAT TATTOO is now a cornerstone of the tattoo industry for Dallas if not Texas."

Joby Cummings - View Tattoo Gallery - Email Artist

Joby Cummings was born in Palm Springs, California shortly there after found himself growing up in rural Texas. After discovering his mom's art supplies at age seven he gave up his destiny as a prestigious rocket scientist and pursued the career of a starving artist. He then spent many years daydreaming, avoiding responsibilities and drawing instead of doing schoolwork. He was heavily influenced at a young age by classic lowbrow art and cartoons like Wacky Packages, Ed Roth, and early Disney animations. 


Joby later went on to attend some obscure Jr College with hopes of becoming a top tier graphic designer. Fate would have it as he was distracted by the allure of the tattoo industry and found himself apprenticing in a  local studio in Dallas, Texas. Thrown into the fast paced environment of a high volume tattoo shop in the early 1990s he would get his baptism by fire in illustration and design. Eight years later he found himself returning to graphic design realm. This move overlapped his tattoo career and eventually took precedent until late 2005. Joby had a "come to Jesus" moment and decided for his own sanity it was best he quit the corporate grind and move to Los Angeles in order to full fill his lifelong destiny as a professional beach bum/tattoo artist.

That lasted about 8 years and has just recently moved back to land where they filmed Robocop and take advantage of the benefits Texas has to offer.


Publications that have features his artist include: Tattoo Savage, International Tattoo, Skin Art, Tattoo Flash, and Inked - teNeues Publishing. His art also can be found in numerous clothing lines and t-shirt companies such as: Christian Audigier, Scanty Pajamas, Zissou & Spike, BCBG, Vertigo, Joie, ENK, West 49, HTFU, and Shirt.Woot. And of course dozens of articles and quick blurbs on a multitude of typography, t-shirt and poster blogs.


Joby often describes his art as pop culture meets lowbrow nestled in a extra dimensional cartoon that never existed, or did it. He likes to focus on combining elements that normally would not ordinarily be found together and he attempts to find harmony in these items and deliver them with a bit of humor and a nice dose of the bazaar.

Memphis - View Tattoo Gallery - Email Artist

Having taken an early interest in art from Looney Tunes and drawing for fun, Memphis never considered the possibility of becoming a tattoo artist, even while getting tattooed at the time. He first found a spread of Cleen Rock One's work and then Jimmy Litwalk and Gunner's spreads together in a magazine, and was both impressed and surprised that tattoos could look so good. A piercer friend, Aaron Anderson noticed Memphis's talent while doodling and asked him If he ever thought about tattooing. He hadn't of course, but the idea was planted nonetheless. Memphis found and completed an apprenticeship and has spent the last eleven years professionally tattooing. Some of his other tattooing influences include Ben Reese, and Kevin and Shannon from Ramesses Shadow. Memphis is open to a variety of styles and work but loves to do full color pieces. Memphis is currently at Cat Tattoo in Addison, TX. If you'd like to make an appointment or are interested in his work feel free to send an email in the link provided or drop a line at Cat Tattoo.

After passing all state exams, she utilized her skills in nursing homes and hospitals around DFW and accepted an apprenticeship from Dr. Clyde R. Lee at Lee Dental in Frisco, Texas.
