William Hill, owner of Wild Bills Tattooing in Roseville, California built his first tattoo machine from a doorbell at age 14. He began experimenting in a tiny tattoo shop set up in his bedroom closet. His first tattoo was a girls name, his second was covering it up. He never saw a real shop until three years later in 1972. He knew at that moment that’s what he wanted to do with his life. His first tattoo business license was bought in 1974.
