Bob Tyrrell

Bob Tyrrell, son of an exceptional artist, initially aspired to follow in his father's footsteps. However, drawn to the allure of music, he traded his paintbrush for a guitar and spent years immersed in heavy metal bands while working in a factory. Yet, his passion for art never waned, and after getting his first tattoo just before hitting 30, he found himself captivated by the craft. Eager to delve deeper, Bob rekindled his love for drawing, eventually leading him to pursue tattooing. Under the mentorship of luminaries like Tom Renshaw at Eternal Tattoos, he honed his skills, transitioning from apprentice to full-time tattoo artist at the age of 34. Six years of dedicated work followed before Bob embarked on a journey of exploration, taking his talents on the road to various conventions and guest spots. Despite his success, Bob remains humble, acknowledging the countless individuals who've influenced and supported him along the way, including his father and renowned artists like Paul Booth, Robert Hernandez, and Guy Aitchison. With a burning desire to delve into fine art and painting while continuing his tattooing endeavors, Bob Tyrrell epitomizes the essence of an artist who's found his true calling amidst life's twists and turns.
