Rob’s passion for tattooing also started at an early age, joining Tim at Classic Tattoo at the tender age of 18. Rob became the Saturday Boy dealing with customers answering the phone and all round general help. Rob’s enthusiasm was second to none turning up week in, week out, year in year out without ever receiving a penny, but all the time he was being exposed to the art and the craft of tattooing. As soon as Rob started drawing designs and sorting out artwork for customers it became very apparent that the time was right to start his apprenticeship under Tim.
Because of all the years spent in the studio Rob was well ahead of the game as he had watched Tim making needles, tuning tattoo machines and mixing colour for countless hours he had sub-consciously semi learnt many of the aspects that make up a good tattooist, so it wasn’t long before Rob was tattooing at a very high level.
Rob now produces some of the strongest traditional colour tattoos in this part of the country but is equally happy tattooing in any style you desire. Rob handles the studios twitter account and you can catch up with him and view the latest tattoos @robtattoo78 or check out his Gallery.
