Gallia County native Rich Thomas, Temple Tattoo founder, is a seasoned tattooer and dedicated small business owner.
Throughout his formidable years, Rich was always drawn to the art of tattooing.
While living in Milwaukee, Rich struck up a friendship turned mentorship with Bill “Cuz’n Bill” Lorenz who became his first teacher. Following his time with Lorenz, Rich served his apprenticeship under the guidance of Scott Friedrich, Absolute Tattooing. Rich credits these two men for giving him his livelihood, and is also thankful to Mike Bakaty and Sailor Jerry Swallow for their positive influences.
Artistically, Rich considers himself a craftsman with a focus on classic traditional imagery that stands the test of time.
Proud to serve the Gallipolis and surrounding areas, Rich enjoys living and working in a place where he and his businesses are supported and encouraged by the local community.
Temple Tattoo is a world class, real-deal tattoo shop, offering a relaxed and sterile environment that honors the traditions of the past while keeping a watchful eye on the future.
Established in 1996, Rich maintains high standards at Temple Tattoo—requiring each artist to prove their skills and attain his approval before plying their trade at his shop. Hiring only the best, Rich is very proud of his crew, and enjoys playing a part in their growth and success.
In addition to owning Temple Tattoo, Rich also owns and operates @Bicknee Tattoo Supply Co. and the @OhioTattooMuseum.
