Kenny K-Bar Builds His World In Tattoos and Legos

Tattoo Artists3 min Read

This Brooklyn artist's love of art was sparked by the little yellow toys that still influence him today.

The best Renaissance masters were proficient in multiple disciplines, most commonly painting and sculpture. Such crossover can be found at the intersection of any number of unlikely different types of art.  For Kenny K-Bar, it’s tattoos and Legos.

After his childhood, Kenny signed up for the Marines, giving five active duty years to his country, including two tours of Iraq.  Kenny reflects on being at a crossroad, “Being raised in Brooklyn, you get a lot of negative influences.  If you let it take over, you can live a life of bad decisions.  I got in a little trouble here and there.  And then I got into a lot of trouble, and I said, ‘I need to do something to change my ways.’”
