San Francisco, US
Gary Royal is a Californian born, travelling tattooer. I first met him while he was here on the road in Australia. I invited him to our house, we hung out, spiked some coconuts with spiced rum etc. then did the tour guide thing and showed him where the Casino was – we woke up hungover and have been friends ever since! When Gary’s not on the road, you can most likely find him at Idle Hand Tattoo in San Francisco or Hunter and Fox in Sydney.
Stay up-to-date with Gary and his work via his Instagram.
