An artist from southwest high school in Houston has been honored by the Trump administration for his tattoo of President Donald Trump and his slogan “Make America Great Again.”
Johnnie K. Johnson Jr., who went from high school to a three-year university in Houston and a tattoo studio in the state capital, Houston, in 2015, received the President Donald J. Trump Tattoo Design Award from the Department of Homeland Security.
Johnson told Axios that the award was a great honor and that he felt inspired by Trump’s slogan.
“I was inspired and inspired by what Trump said on the campaign trail, ‘Make America great again,'” Johnson said.
“He was the guy that talked about, ‘I will build a wall between the two nations.
We will not allow it to be broken.’
I think that resonated with me, so I had to create something that could represent that.”
Johnson has tattooed a lot of different types of people.
He was the subject of a tattoo of Trump’s face, and a man he called a “good guy,” and a woman he called “good friend,” he said.
“The most recent tattoo I did was of Trump, and I have this picture of him on the wall with me and my friends,” Johnson said, adding that it’s also an illustration of what he wanted to be when he grows up.
Johnson said he is a proud American.
He added that he’s been inspired by his country and its history and the ideals that are important in that, and that’s why he’s drawn his inspiration from the president and his policies.
He said that he thinks he’s not the only person in the country that is inspired by that.
“There are so many people who are inspired by it and who are in a position where they can be part of it,” Johnson told Axos.
“I think that’s really the reason why I’m drawing this tattoo.
Because I know that there are so few other people who have that opportunity.”
Johnson, who was born in Houston, said he had a lot to learn about tattoos, which was the first thing that made him want to do the work he’s doing.
“One of the first things I learned was how to use the brush to paint,” he told Axis.
“That’s how I started my career.”
He added that it took him a few years to master the technique.
“It took me about three years to get my first brush stroke, and then I had about four or five brushes with my first painting,” he explained.
“It took about six months before I got my second brush stroke.”
Johnson said that the tattoo process involved working with a small number of people and using a palette.
“At first I did it all myself, but then I got a lot more experienced,” he added.
“The more experience you get, the more skilled you can be, so that’s what I do.
I’m very, very skilled.
I can do everything, I can paint, I just need to work at it.”
Johnson is an accomplished tattoo artist and he’s also the owner of the Austin-based Tattoo & Tattoo, which is an online marketplace for tattoo artists.
He has tattoo designs on people from presidents, athletes, and politicians to celebrities.
The Houston tattoo shop has been a destination for him for the last few years.
“When I was working there, I would take my kids to the shop to pick up their art supplies and they would buy my art supplies.
Now I go to it for a lot,” he revealed.
“People are going to want to get tattoos and they’re going to be in love with their art.”
He said the store has a lot in store for the next couple years.
Johnson has tattoos of celebrities such as President Trump, former NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and rapper Kanye West.
He said that they all inspire him.
“These are people who really inspire me and I want to make a difference in the world.
I want people to see that they can achieve things they can’t achieve,” Johnson explained.”
We need to be on the right side of history.
We need to make this country great again,” he concluded.
