New Youtube interview

October 2019 - Interview with black and grey tattoo master Bob Tyrrell talks about tattooing in Los Angeles and Detroit, his solo drives back and forth, traveling the world to work and teach seminars at hundreds of conventions around the globe, his upcoming tattoo convention schedule (you can get tattooed by Bob!), his influences including Rick Baker and Exodus, meeting Robert Hernandez at the Tattoo the Earth shows, and the upcoming Bucharest Tattoo Convention.

Come learn from me in Ireland this September!

I will be teaching a seminar this September in Ireland.  Click here for more info and tickets. Dont wait on this, it's filling up fast!

This seminar will cover a vast array of techniques when approaching both a colour realism tattoo and black and grey portrait tattoo. This seminar will take place in 2 parts and feature a "live tattooing".
The legendary Bob Tyrrell, best known for his black and grey portraits, will speak about the process and techniques involved when tattooing a realistic portrait. He will also discuss capturing details and different textures, along with covering some of the most common challenges of tattooing such a piece.
Remis, known for his hyper realistic works, will talk about the fundamental aspects that create the foundation of a colour realism piece. He will also cover the way in which he approaches applying details and textures within the piece. Together they will cover the complete tattoo process, with a detailed explanation from idea conception to finished product.

Watch, interact and learn whilst these two world class artists produce a collaborative tattoo with stunning results.
