Cool Dad Job: Tattoo Artist
Cool Dad Vibe: Edgy But Sweet
Cool Dad Bona Fides: When it’s hot and the other dads take off their shirts at the playground to show off their tribal tats, Ami James, the much heralded tattoo artist, keeps his canvas covered. James, 46, is perhaps best known as the tattoo artist featured in Miami Ink and NY Ink. But when he’s not plunging a needle filled with ink into the hides of any of the celebrity clients at his Miami parlor Love Hate Tattoo, he’s raising his own daughters, ten-year-old Shayli and six-year-old Nalia. No word yet on whether they’re yet inked.
