Phil Geck is a tattooer, punk musician and multi-format artist from the Bay Area / Sacramento Valley, California. Recognizing as a child that art provided a safe escape for his mind to imagine and defy impossibilities, Phil took advantage of all the art programs in school. There he discovered an inherent flexibility, talent, and passion in multiple audio-visual art forms: sculpture, paintings, and music. In 1997 he started the internationally renown punk band Monster Squad in high school with his friends.
Phil's tattoo work has brought him much acclaim. His animal, skull, and realistic portraiture captures the difficult task of portray the true essence of the subject. With music, he strives to create deeper meaning through messages in his lyrics. He doesn't believe in art with rules, encouraging the mental freedom to explore concepts and mix using any any and all mediums that feel right.
Touring internationally and working guest spots in tattoo studios has elevated Phil's craft, ensuring evolution and endless inspiration. He is currently tattooing full-time with Death & Glory Tattoo in Davis, California. Aside from Monster Squad, he has two bands - LUV and Ancient Rage - currently in recording for releases coming soon. He has started sculpting again, and continues to work on fine-tuning his painting with oil, and an upcoming series of black-and-white paintings.
