Years went by and Tony frequented Robs tattoo shop to have work done, which kept them in touch. One night, while surfing the web, Tony met Stacey on a social networking site. Sparks flew and a year and a half later they were married. Tony and Rob both felt that Stacey was the missing piece. Her extensive web design background, strong business sense and diligent work ethic were the push they needed to get off the ground, the only thing left was a name.
While researching what was needed to start a LLC they found a stipulation that stated, "If one partner of the LLC is mentally insane the LLC will be dissolved." After an uproar of laughter, Rob commented, "well I guess we’re done before we get started." Tony responded, "we’re all psychos", and a thought hit Stacey "well if were psychos and they’re our designs I guess you could call them Psychotic Creations." The name was perfect.
Stacey, a successful freelance web designer is responsible for the aspects of marketing, bookkeeping, ordering, and just about everything computer related for Psychotic Creations. She keeps the site updated, the books in check and the "virtual shelves" full. Basically she is the mortar that holds the asylum together.
Rob is a well known Chicago tattoo artist but his skills don’t stop there, he has been drawing and painting since high school. Rob’s success in tattooing made him wonder what other medium would allow him to share his twisted vision, with help from Tony and Stacey R.A.G Originals™ was born. R.A.G Originals™ is a unique clothing line (and other "Goodes") that are anything but typical. From a playful puppy to a demonic succubus, if you can imagine it, Rob can draw it.
Tony has been a welder and fabricator for over 16 years. He decided to use his talents and warped mind to create one-of-a-kind home décor with a mechanical presence. It’s kind of like the Mad Hatter and Ethan Allen spliced their DNA. This line will hopefully be launched late this year or early next year. Keep an eye out for these unique designs. They will be the subtle decoration that pulls your whole room together.
