Pinstripes by Tony
Growing up around his fatherâ€™s custom paint shop, it was natural for Tony to be taught pinstriping at an early age. By 14, he had a steady customer base and was pinstriping anything he could get his hands on. At 18, he enlisted in the Marine Corp, and took his paints and brushes with him, pinstriping around the world, while serving our country.
In 1987 he opened his own shop, Pinstripes by Tony, and started up www.pinstriper.com, a how-to website for beginners. He was commissioned by Von Dutch to pinstripe their stores around the world and works on many of their custom bikes.
Perez has been featured on Discovery Channelâ€™s, Bike Build Off where he pinstriped Jesse Rookâ€™s â€œrockstar bikeâ€, as well as Chopper Nation, The Von Dutch Episode, on Espn 2.
