A Billiard Bar Bartender and Metal Guitarist Shows Off His Many Tattoos (Photos)

In Ink Spot, Amy Price stops strangers in Dallas to shoot, and learn about, their body art.

Jeff Biehler, a 38-year-old bartender (at Billiard Bar and The Foundry) and guitarist for the trash metal band Maleveller, is actually sweeter than his tattoos might portray. On the top of Biehler's right arm is a tribute to his deceased grandfather, by Jeff Brown at Hold Fast tattoo.

"My father called me not long after my grandfather died and he said 'Hey lets get a tattoo with the Biehler name on it,'" Biehler says. "My grandfather was in World War II and he [my father] had his name Ted on his arm and he wanted to get Biehler because my grandfather was a badass."
