My name is Rob I was born in central New Jersey.Growing up on the Jersey Shore I was raised and have a great sense of Jersey pride. I moved to Philadelphia when I was 17 in search of a tattoo apprenticeship. While trying to learn how to tattoo I enrolled and graduated from Philadelphia University of the Arts with a degree in fine arts. During my senior year I started my apprenticeship. I earned the title of tattooer in 2006 and moved to Brooklyn, NY and started my career at a true walk in shop in Bay ridge Brooklyn where I tattooed for 8 years . Over the years I have established a strong traditional American clientele. Being raised by the ocean I have strong ties to traditional nautical designs. I have strong traditional influence in all my art work and custom designs. If you are looking for a bold, classic, true American traditional design I'm here for you. When I'm not tattooing at the shop I'm drawing and painting pinups, roses, eagles, and panthers. In always putting new flash and painting on my walls and on social networks so stop by the shop or look me up to check them out.
