I first met Mike Rennie when he moved to Jacksonville, Florida to work at Inksmith and Rogers. We then became quick friends over late night drinks and riding in the midnight toucher. A short time later he moved back to Richmond, Virginia to start work at Absolute Art.
Through Mike, I met and became friends with Brian Bruno; a tattooer at Absolute Art.
These two guys are a couple of my favorite tattooers. They may have their own styles, but one thing remains the same; and that is their passion for this industry. When I am around these two watching them tattoo or listening to them discuss the history of it, it makes me excited about tattooing all over again. Hopefully this interview will give you some insight on their personalities and also how amazing their shop is. One thing is for sure, and that is, no matter how many times you come and go from their shop, you will always find something new and interesting on the walls.
