Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America
Garver was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he attended The Pittsburgh High School for the Creative and Performing Arts. Garver's mother was an artist and encouraged his interest in painting and drawing. He first experimented with tattooing at age 17, after selling his bass guitar in order to purchase his tattoo equipment. Garver attended the School of Visual Arts and apprenticed for six months, repairing old tattoos that needed touch-ups, before he started tattooing clients on his own. In his early twenties, Garver moved to New York City where he became a full-time professional tattoo artist.
