Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, Billy DeCola’s life has always been interwoven with art. Growing up he loved to paint and sketch, and then as a teenager his artistic side blossomed into an affinity for photography and film, as he found the combination of motion, picture, dialogue, music and sound to be a powerful tool to express himself.
After college Billy’s desire to discover more of the world landed him on the opposite side of it, in Japan, where he studied the Japanese language and culture. It was in Tokyo, and thanks to connecting with the world-renowned Horitoshi family, that Billy became interested in the art of tattooing.
Upon moving back to the USA, Billy started developing his tattoo skills while working at the Miami Ink Tattoo Studio in Miami, Florida. Then in 2011 Billy was afforded the opportunity to move to New York where he was featured on the hit reality TV Show “NY Ink” through Seasons 1 & 2.
When the filming of "NY Ink" was over, his wife and their two children moved to his wife’s hometown, Vancouver, BC where he was immediately inspired by the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape and continued to produce beautiful photography, artwork and tattoos.
After a few years working at some of the most highly regarded tattoo studios in the city, as well as travelling around the world to tattoo at various tattoo conventions, Billy decided to make a long-term commitment to Vancouver and opened his private tattoo studio, Kiku Tattoo Parlour, in 2016.
