Born and raised in Las Vegas Nevada, Robert “Pup” Byington has been tattooing professionally for 10 years.
His apprenticeship under Master Takiichi Kuohujoki and owner Patrick Ross, at Rogues Gallery in Menomonie Wisconsin was the starting point for his tattooing career.
“Never forget where you came from” is a mantra he embraces and instills in his own apprentices today. Hard work, respect and appreciation for his clientele are first and foremost in his life.
His portfolio is extensive, showcasing his versatility but his personal favourites are photo realism and Japanese.(Heavily influenced by his love of Horioshi III)
Pup is tattooing at All American Tattoo in Stafford, VA.
