Tattoo Artist Dan Smith: From Punk House to Parlor

Dan Smith (born 1980 in Middlesbrough, England), aka Dan Under, is a New Zealander tattooist and musician. At the age of six, he moved to Auckland. Spending his childhood captured by music, Dan played in many bands all the way up until his early twenties.
