By Rachel Jones

What’s your favorite Pittsburgh restaurant?

Ike Taylor: Umi is my favorite restaurant and my favorite place to go in Pittsburgh. Mr. Shu is the chef there, and he makes sashimi and all that good stuff.

How many tattoos do you have?

IT:  I lost count after 20 — probably 30 or 40.

Do you have a favorite tattoo?

IT:  I have a family tree on the side of my ribs, but my favorite one is my son’s birthday and footprints from his birth certificate.

What’s the last concert you went to?

IT: I saw Wiz Khalifa last year.

If they made a movie about your life, who would play you?

IT: It’d have to be a mixture of Denzel Washington and George Clooney. Ooh, that’s a good mix!
