Ryan Patrick is a "Jack of All Trades" and is mastering the art of tattooing. He always had a pencil and paper within reach. Drawing, painting and creating art has been Ryan's passion his entire life. As a child he could be found late in the evening fast a sleep at the kitchen table pencil in hand, face down and drooling on the paper. Growing up in the east coast, small town mentality and lack of confidence in his art had him chasing other dreams; like welding, working in action sports retail, and even learning and teaching flying.
A desire to be creative stoked a fire in Ryan's heart a little later than most. He started to apprentice as a black smith in the east coast in 2012, but a move to the big smoke happened in 2013. Shortly before leaving for Toronto a good friend purchased Ryan a tattoo starter kit, and encouraged Ryan to follow his dream of becoming a tattoo artist. He started tattooing himself and the rest is history. Now after only a few years of apprenticing he's now rocking a full time gig putting ink on skin and smiles on faces. Ryan is personable, friendly and a great listener. He will do his best to make your tattoo dream a reality. Ryan enjoys working with colour leaning towards new school, old school and American Traditional styles, however he is more than happy to do just about anything a client desires.
Ryan made it out for a short visit in the fall of 2016. And though it was short we really felt that he left his mark. It was a pleasure to host Ryan and see the tattoos that he created. He is such a kind and humble tattooer, just super stoked to get to ply his trade. When the opportunity to offer him a longer contract presented itself, we just had to say yes.
