Dustin Ross Fauskee was born November 28, 1985 in Glenwood, Minnesota to Erik and Karla (Hinnenkamp) Fauskee. Dustin attended school in Osakis. He enjoyed helping his father at Battle Lake Boat Works. Establishing his tattoo business in 2016, Customer's Ink Tattoo, in Anoka was his pride and joy. Dustin's work has been published in trade magazines and was proud to be the first artist from Minnesota selected to go to a New York City professional event. Dustin was ready to begin a National Tour starting in New York. He entered his tattooing in competitions and received accolades and awards. Along with being a tattooist, he was an accomplished artist, not only in ink drawings, but also with chalk drawings, air brushing, and other mediums. Dustin was a driven, hardworking perfectionist, who loved his family, dirt biking, camping, and being an outdoorsman. With his endearing personality, he made positive impressions on everyone he met. He will truly be missed.
