Currently living in Tampa Florida, Phil Holt is the single father of 4, who has tattooed since 1996 with a serious, nomadic blood Phil and his family have moved across the country multiple times in an effort to learn as much as possible studying under the best of the best in both the fine art and tattoo worlds. Phil opened RedLetter1 in 2004 as a private studio and gallery in Ybor City and as time moved so has the location, now just outside of Hyde Park in Tampa. Currently Phil co-owns RedLetter1 with Jeff Srsic. While Phil is not a graffiti writer or a traditional fine artist, this tattooer makes art that does not revolve around orthodox tattoo guidelines but rather seeks to amalgamate these different styles for a unique visual experience.
