Robert Hirsh a.k.a Choofee started his tattoo career at Holy Turtle tattoo shop in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Choffee was born in Trondheim, Norway, and splits his time between the states and his homeland.
“The first tattoo I got was a tiger & kanji symbol picked from “flash” off a wall in a guy’s basement. Back then in Trondheim, only bikers owned tattoo shops, so I had to get mine in secret. It was just before my 16th birthday, so I felt tough being one of the few 15-year-old kids to be wearing ink. I couldn’t keep it a secret at all. I bought a couple of wife-beaters just to show them off.”
In 2019 Choffee joined Revolt Tattoos’ elite team of artists and currently holds a chair in Las Vegas, NV.
