Rob started tattooing when he was 18 (2002), after already having years of experience drawing comic book figures, portraits, etc. He started his professional tattoo career in Hastings, Minnesota where he worked for 5 years at a local tattoo studio. He won his first trophy in 2008 for a Biomechanical leg sleeve on a friend of his. The next one was for a full floral leg sleeve on a woman. Then, it was a first place portrait award, all within a year. Robert prefers to do any custom tattoo work, however he appreciates all different types of styles and will think outside the box to get you that perfect design that you have in your mind. With two Bachelor Degrees in Digital Design and Animation/Graphic Design Web, along with experience in concept art, he is more than capable of putting your ideas to skin.
