President, Bluegrass Brawl Inc

Tommy Ray Cornett comes to Lexington by way of Cincinnati Ohio and Beattyville Kentucky.

Tommy has been an athlete and an artist his entire life. He grew up wrestling in Ohio and later competed on the European stage in Greco-Roman/Freestyle competitions.

After returning to the US, Tommy decided to pursue his artist dream of tattooing. He  began his professional tattooing career in his hometown of Cincinnati in 1998 while  attending the University of Cincinnati, majoring in Design. Years later he would move to Lexington, opening Bleed Blue Tattoo in December of 2007.

Throughout his tattooing career Tommy has remained a wrestling coach, working with high school teams, coaching private lessons, and applying his wrestling  background and expertise to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) training as well. It was his love of wrestling and MMA that prompted Tommy to create the Bluegrass Brawl in 2012 to support local fighters and provide them with a legitimate avenue into the professional world of MMA.

Tommy continues to strive to make both Bleed Blue Tattoo and the Bluegrass Brawl true examples of success and industry professionalism. Tommy was recently awarded the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), 2014 Small Business Owner of the Year for the state of Kentucky.
