Drawing since he could remember, art has always been a passion and focal point in his life. Although he had no formal education in the arts there was never a doubt he would be a working artist. Along the way he acquired the skills necessary to tattoo and having mastered several techniques, his work has garnered numerous awards, gained acclaim internationally and inspired many other artists to pursue a career in the tattoo industry. His favorite things to tattoo are photo-realism, whether portraits of people or animals, full scenes and floral. He also prides himself in his ability to recreate fine art in the skin, not just his interpretation, but faithfully following the original art to the finest details. Bret also enjoys the creative side of the medium when his clients trust him to conjure up imagery that showcases his ability to think outside the box, and lets him free hand it. Apart from tattooing, his fine art continues to reach a world wide audience of collectors on both private and corporate levels. He considers himself a Journeyman Artist in every medium he works and has a true passion for both Photo-Realism and Surrealism.
FRIENDS & FAMILY by Bret One of the most enjoyable aspects of tattooing for me has been the people I've met while on the road. Whether breaking bread, having a pint or indulging some vintage red wines, all of them have become my extended family. They have overcome my dysfunctions with a great tolerance I'm sure and accept me anyway. They are some of the finest and genuine down to earth people I have ever met, making life on the road so much tolerable. Traveling for work isn't as glamorous as many may imagine, it can be a tremendous stress, but I'll save that story for a blog. These few photos are just the tip of the iceberg, there are so many more that I don't have photos of but when I do start traveling again I will surely annoy everyone I know to take a picture.
