willie-nelsonhe immortal Willie Nelson portrayed on a “pot” smokers calf. Willie is the coolest and what a great tribute to Willie. The tattoo is done by the great Bob Tyrrell. He’s one of my top 3 favorite tattoo artists. The realism is uncanny and his portraits are unbelievably realistic.  Tyrrell does only black and gray work and only started working in the tattoo trade when he was 35 years old.  You would never know it looking at the outstanding quality you see in his artwork.

Hey – thanks for letting me know – I’m hoping to revamp the design soon – maybe it’ll fix the issue.

Hello to whom ever, where does Bob T live if this is the kind of work he does I would really like a portrait done. Thanks. Ian WolverIan

It seems he just likes to travel around and doesn’t have a shop that he works in. His work is some of the best. He has a road trip schedule on his site but it doesn’t have any new dates. The last one was for September. I’d suggest you keep an eye on that or just shoot him an email.

This is a beautifully done portrait. I’m trying to find someone who can do work like this for a portrait of my 20 year old daughter who recently perished in a car accident. I’m trying to find someone who can use her ashes for ink for the tattoo. I live in central California and can travel some. Can you please recommend someone in the area who would do a fantastic job?
