Flash Tattoo Event - Tattoo Artist Biographies
On Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November the Terry Bradley Gallery will be buzzing with the sound of tattoo artists creating unique Bradley designs on a select number of lucky participants. This event has been organised to mark one year since the opening of the gallery on High St. Bangor. The tattoo artists have been selected for their amazing creativity and experience of recreating Terry Bradley designs into tattoos. Over the course of the two days Kerri O’Sullivan (Tatt House, Belfast), Brian Tipping (Eye Candy, Bangor) and Joe Mullan (Joker Tattoo Studio, Belfast) will set up a temporary studio in the gallery where people are invited to watch.
Terry, who is well known for his own body art commented, “Many people who I’ve met in the gallery tell me that my work has inspired their own tattoos and I’m always honoured when someone asks me if they can use my work in this way. So I thought it would a great way to combine our one year celebration with a flash tattoo event. I have designed six images that can be re-created by one of these brilliant tattoo artists over the weekend. These images will be unique to this event and I hope that people will enjoy the spectacle of watching the artists at work”
Each of the tattoo artists have a unique style and each will display their own creativity at this flash tattoo event. We met up with the artists recently to find out a little bit more about them and their work…
Tattoo Artist: Kerri O’Sullivan
Tattoo Studio: Tatt House, Belfast
Kerri began her career with drawing pencil portraits about 4 years ago and since then she has went on to develop her tattoo career with her wonderful colleagues at Tatt House Belfast. Kerri mainly focuses on black and grey realism, including portraits of well-known actors, celebrities and of course Terry Bradley art! Kerri has worked on Terry and she is making quite an impression on the tattoo community
Tattoo Artist: Brian Tipping
Tattoo Studio: Eye Candy, Bangor
I’ve been tattooing for ten years now and I set up Eye Candy Tattoo Studio 7 years ago and haven’t looked back since. I work alongside Rana Parkinson and Scott Lowery who are as both passionate about what they do as I am. I enjoy all styles of tattoos and buy into the saying “variety is the spice of life”. I’ve worked 9 tattoo conventions since 2013 and managed to bring 7 tattoo awards back to Bangor. I love what I do for a living and feel very lucky to get to do this as a “job”.
Tattoo Artist: Joe Mullan
