Best Of 2015: Tattoo Artist: Jeff Oelklaus

When I arrive at Bearded Lady, tattoo artist Jeff Oelklaus is working patiently through the staggeringly intricate outline that graces Jose Mata's forearm. Jeff's shop — opened in March after his amicable split from Pens & Needles — is thriving in OCC, with new clients like Mata as well as plenty of regulars. "I really cherish the people that I meet," says Oelklaus, who adds that he's tattooed multiple generations of the same family. And when it comes to his craft? "I like to do the things that make other artists say, 'Fuck that!'" — Bridgett Harris
