32 Undeniable Works by Steve Byrne
At the age of nineteen, Steve Byrne first started tattooing; working in a street shop in Leeds for just over five years. First shown how to tattoo by someone who had only been tattooing for a short time themselves, Steve was pretty much self-taught. He spent many of his younger years concentrating on his art and becoming a tattooist. After many years of hard work, dedication and sacrifice, he has developed his own undeniable, artist’s style.
Steve worked on his own, tattooing in the UK and all over the world since 1997; traveling for months at a time to guest spot. Over the years, he found himself fortunate to have gained a great deal of experience working alongside some of the best in the business. In 2002, Steve opened his own shop in the UK, In Name and Blood, having great artists of skin guest with him over the years. Steve and his family relocated to the United States in August 2009. Along with Tony Hundahl, he is now the co-owner of Rock Of Ages Tattoo in Austin, Texas; an amazing shop with a very cool atmosphere. The shop is a mix of demanding high-end custom work and street level walk-in trade.
Steve once described his work as western traditional with hints of Japanese, with respect to the old masters, he interprets his own style. It is obvious in his vast portfolio that he has spent many years paying special attention to his technical tattooing skills; creating a style so distinctive with clean, bold color, a clinical line, and unique composition.
