Born as Cole James Margera on the outskirts of West Chester, Pennsylvania to his father Phil who was a baker and mother April who was a hair dresser; he grew up in a rather normal home. Being the younger of two children, Coles brother Jesse often looked out for the immature little brother who found himself getting into trouble frequently. Even as a young kid in school, he was a class clown and got kicked out of more classrooms than one could count; his group of friends finding ways to amuse themselves in the most boring of moments. The hard-to-handle Margera found out early on that he loved to make people laugh and the attention he got from it. To get away from his parents complaining about the teachers calling, he picked up skateboarding as a way to get out of the house and give everybody a break.
But soon came high school came and Cole couldnt avoid being held accountable for his rowdy actions. After getting himself thrown into the back of police cars every now and again for minor delinquency issues, the Margera's had had enough and threatened to remove him from high school where he was fueled by all of his friends. The remaining time in 10th grade went smoothly and flew under the radar, until the first day of 11th grade where he dropped out willingly. Daring a best friend, Chris Raab, to smear feces on a few lockers, his friend was caught and suspended. Cole felt so bad for putting him up to it that he used that as an excuse to quit. Being as he was only 15 years old, Cole had dead-end jobs that he soon grew tired of but used the majority of his time wisely; skating and drawing. Margera now had all the free time in the world to perfect both of those naturally skilled abilities. He had always had a problem with authority and being told what to do, and the bosses at these jobs he didnt care about werent making it any easier on him; soon quitting that too at 17. Although it seemed as if Margera had no motivation, he certainly did and wanted to be his own boss, his own business. Knowing if he said anything aloud he would be ridiculed, Cole grabbed a few of his closest high school buddies and took off for New York City a couple days before his 18th birthday. He wanted something more and Cole thought he would find that in The City That Never Sleeps. That's when Cole pooled some of his savings into opening a small tattoo shop in the heart of the city. He named it INK.
Omg I'm sorry. Don't panic about it. 😂 This is why we communicate! Work out all the kinks. If you'd like to then you can?? I don't really care who starts, honestly. Just as long as I know what the hell is going on. 😬
