He is married and has a little dog that he is known to treat like his child.[4] Brass received his first tattoo when he turned 18 years old. It has been said that his sweet demeanor makes a majority of first time clients more at ease and less nervous.[7] Brass is commonly mistaken to be from the Latin descent, but he is actually half Irish and half Polish.[5]
