ARTIST  Tattoos/Piercing -Owner/Operator

Adam Gregory

Adam is one of the owners of Between the Lines, and does the difficult task of Shop Manager. He was corrupted and drawn into the world of tattoos and piercings in 1999, when he received his first tattoos from Grumpy at the tender age of 15 (yes he had parents permission). That was a turning point in Adams life, and he has been a part of the tattoo world ever since, working hard to become a respected, licensed artist. Adam is a natural  inkslinger, with a talent for most styles of tattooing. But his preference, and where he shines is in beautiful, no line tattoos. He has built a dedicated and loyal following, and works hard every single day to perfect his art. Adam also does piercing.

Tattoos - Owner/Operator              ARTIST

Eric "Grumpy" Dean


Grumpy is one of the owners of Between the Lines, and also performs the duties of Business Manager. Grumpy has been slinging ink over 30 years, and is the former owner of Lifestylz Emporium, Tattoo and Piercing in Lebanon, MO. He doesn't profess a certain style of art, and can do just about anything he puts his mind to, but is most comfortable in black and gray, trash polka, and old school traditional stuff. If you look at his work, some of his best work is dark and creepy designs, coverups, and  beautiful flowers and foliage. 

He is a lifetime biker, owns and builds his own bikes, and does custom airbrush work for people when he has the time. Because he has been tattooing for so long, he has quite the following, which people affectionately referred to as the Nation, in this case, the Grump Nation. So, check out his artist site when you have some time!    Click here  ->    GRUMP NATION
