Pain Favorite: Frontier Tattoo

Paul McC, Tattooer and Co-Owner – FRONTIER TATTOO COMPANY

Paul McC is one of the two founding partners of Frontier Tattoo Company of San Tan Valley, Arizona. Paul
started drawing hot rods when he was just a kid after watching his older brothers draw Ed Roth cars. His
love of drawing, and art in general, continued throughout high school. After high school, Paul took art classes
at a local college. Getting his start in tattooing in Virginia, Paul has now been tattooing for over 25 years. He
has tattooed all over the country, including but not limited to: Colorado, Florida, California, Alabama, North
Carolina, Washington State, Arizona and Mississippi. He has worked with many awesome tattoo artists and has learned something from each of them. He loves working with customers and getting their ideas on paper and then onto their skin. Paul believes that customers are the number one reason for the success of a great tattoo shop and he treats them accordingly. He is friendly, has a great sense of humor and has a knack for putting people at ease about the tattoo process. Paul likes doing all styles of tattoos — color, black and grey, cover-ups and black and grey or color portraits. He also enjoys other forms of media such as painting and color pencil drawing. Paul is naturally laid-back and easy to get along with. He enjoys gold panning, music of all sorts, woodworking, car shows that feature hot rods and baking pies. We believe in giving people a great tattoo for a reasonable price in a professional and respectful but fun atmosphere.
