WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Here at Giant Steps, we love hearing about our graduates, and recently we had 27 year-old Derek come and visit our staff and students. Derek has a huge interest in Ink Master, a reality TV competition series which features tattoo artists who compete in various challenges. He was recently named Ink Master's Superfan and invited to their season finale in Las Vegas - check it out!
