Dr. L. W. Pogue is a licensed doctor of chiropractic and certified naturopathic physician. He received his Bachelor of Science in Clinical Nutrition from Life University. He was trained in operating room aseptic technique (sterilization) at Grace Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
Beginning 1968 to present he has owned and operated tattoo studios in Michigan, Georgia, and Louisiana. In addition, he has operated The Worlds’ Only Tattoo School from its infancy, late in 1968 to this present day. He has trained more tattoo artists than ANYONE in history and there is only a remote second place – Harvey Kennedy, who is also on his staff. The World’s Only Tattoo School is the first tattoo school in existence to be licensed as a trade school by the government.
Dr. Pogue is an expert in neuro-linguistic programming – a power-learning system. From 1967 to present he has trained thousands of karate experts, including some who have become world champions in less than two years. Dr. Pogue and co-instructor Harvey Kennedy have both won USKA World Karate Titles in their 50’s – a feat not equaled by many. Pogue uses neuro-linguistics to achieve high results in power-training artistic individuals to become competent tattoo artists in a very short, intensive program. Over 38 years of unparallel experience speaks for itself.
Dr. Pogue shares his time with his homes in Michigan, Louisiana, and Trinidad, West Indies and is a collector of classic autos.
