Owner of Bicycle Tattoos, Entrepreneur | South Bend, Indiana
DAVID

When people come into my tattoo studio, they’re sometimes surprised to learn I’m Native American and my roots run deep in The Pokagon Band and Potawatomi culture. I am an artist at heart, and am always creating. It is through my illustrations and bead work that I can most honor my ancestors and heritage. As a business owner, I have a unique opportunity to be part of two different communities. With my Tribal community, I perform traditional music through the Ribbontown Singers, as well as perform traditional dances and drumming. As an entrepreneur, I honor my artistic side through tattooing and as a toy maker. I have four children, all who are learning the traditions and culture of our Tribe. They too celebrate their heritage and do what they can to keep it alive.

 

I am David and I am Potawatomi.
