Time in the Tattoo Indusy
Ryan’s entry into the world of tattooing began with a traditional apprenticeship, which laid the foundational skills and knowledge essential for his career. However, a significant portion of his expertise and proficiency in tattooing came from self-teaching. This self-directed learning allowed Ryan to explore various styles and techniques at his own pace, leading to a unique and personalized approach in his work. His ability to blend formal training with self-taught skills has contributed significantly to his development as a skilled and versatile tattoo artist.
Styles & Focus
Ryan has observed that over the years, his artistic ‘style’ has undergone a significant evolution, especially in terms of gaining confidence with black and grey tattooing. He specializes primarily in line work, but also expresses a strong passion for creating black and grey pieces, as well as dotwork.
In discussing his influences, Ryan mentions a particular fondness for dark-themed designs when working with black and grey. His line work often incorporates intricate mandala patterns, showcasing his attention to detail and appreciation for complexity. Additionally, in dotwork, he finds a unique and enjoyable form of expression. This combination of preferences and expertise in various styles and techniques underscores Ryan’s versatility and creative vision as a tattoo artist.
Ryan recalls a particularly memorable tattoo project, which was a geometric design he created on a client’s leg. This project stands out for him because he was granted complete creative freedom. He fondly remembers how well the client’s skin accepted the ink and how flawlessly the tattoo healed. The success of this project was not just in the impeccable execution, but also in the seamless healing process, which is a testament to both his skill as a tattoo artist and the client’s care. This experience, where everything from artistic liberty to the physical outcome aligned perfectly, remains a highlight in Ryan’s career.
