Bond continued to hit every shop he could, he lived in Vegas for a spell before heading out to Seattle and hitting the convention circuit. He later spent time in New Orleans and when the Mardi Gras party ended, he took up residency in Panama City Beach, Florida to take advantage of the spring break festivities. Finally, in 2003, Brandon seemed to settle in and set down roots in Atlanta. But don’t let that statement fool you. He NEVER slowed down.
Brandon has been interviewed and has work in over 500 international tattoo magazines and holds the title of most published tattoo artist in the world! In 2004 he opened All or Nothing Tattoo and Body Piercing. His new shop attracted some of the hottest names in the tattoo industry and his staff was soon out to capture as many awards and write ups as humanly possible. The shop became a hit and the name “All or Nothing” became a household term.
Yes, Bond has put in his time and it has paid off. He now works out of his own private studio by appointment only and caters to larger pieces. He is booked at least a year out and still owns All or Nothing, but his private studio is something to see.
Brandon has elevated the tattoo experience to something that transcends the average, or even really, really nice shop. He has done something few other artists in this country have done and created an entire environment in which the tattoo experience can take place. Bond’s private digs lie in Northwest Atlanta and sound more like a five star retreat salon than a tattoo studio. The facility houses two movie theatres, two koi ponds, and two art galleries that show Brandon’s personal tattoo art collection. There is a Jacuzzi; hand laid Brazilian flooring, etched glass, surround sound, wireless video games, and food… oh the food… rare cuts of beef and fresh bounty are prepared every day. And to wash it all down, a huge stock of mineral waters, juices, beer, wine, and Champaign. You really couldn’t ask for more could you? How about work from more than one artist? Yup, collaborations abound at A.N.T.I. Art Elite (the name of the private studio). Appointments are made through All or Nothing, so be sure to contact them directly if you are interested in this mind-blowing experience.
But Brandon has loves that go beyond tattoos and fine art. Bond is also responsible for an animal rescue that works to help pit bulls that have been abused and abandoned. He has films out about his operation and I am hoping we might be able to review them for you. Speaking of films, Bond does have a couple instructional tattoo videos out as well and if he sees fit to send a copy our way, I will be sure to have an in depth review.
In fact, Bond has sooo much going on, that I just can’t get it all into this little section. You will see him again here as we near one of his Pitbull Rescue events in Vegas. The rescue is near and dear to his heart and deserves its own space. Brandon, thank for all you have done for us in the tattoo world.
Love, Respect, and Ride Safe,
