Billy DeCola from "NY Ink" stars in the TLC reality docu-series.

Born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Florida, Bill DeCola ("NY Ink") is a tattoo artist who apprentices under Ami James at the tattoo shop Wooster Street Social Club in New York City. DeCola says he'll be an apprentice forever because "there's so much to learn and there's always someone better out there. Being a tattoo artist is the most challenging thing I've ever done… and from what I hear it's not going to get any easier."
