There is no doubt that Ray Hughes Sr is an artist. It is just a matter of the medium and the materials. His tattoo studio, Vision World Tattoo in Urbana, is a 3D portfolio of his talents. He carved the dragon legs of his desk from wood given to him. He created the reception desk likewise from wood given to him and other recycled items. He built and painted the bench in the reception area. The walls are hung with his paintings and there are sketch books filled with ideas and drawings. All of this talent comes together each time he creates unique custom works of art on skin.
