@MelvinTodd_LS Atlanta, GA
After overcoming a childhood of financial hardship, Melvin Todd attended Auburn University, where he landed his first apprenticeship. Having tattooed for eight years, Todd is confident he is the best artist in his Atlanta shop, City of Ink, owned by renowned tattoo artist Miya Bailey. Todd has also created his own company, Loveless Society, which keeps his mind off his self-proclaimed “crazy” love life. Although Todd may be struggling to maintain a successful relationship, he is certainly not struggling with his career after taking his work international this past year. With his eye on success, Todd has one true dream: to be fortunate enough to buy his mother a home one day. And he hopes to show people that no matter their social background, everyone can achieve their dreams by never doubting themselves.
