After an extended lapse in Blog and Newsletter entries I am back with a soon to be updated website and information service . Having well and truly been re inspired by my time at Tatudharma I am recharged with the enthusiasm for Tattooing that I began with over twenty years ago . I am now almost exclusively concerntraiting on the Japanese style , it seems to be the most requested and were my heart ultimately lies . I have opened my waiting list again and taking consults over the coming months for the remainder of the year . I am also going to be working one week a month at Dynamic Tattoo in Melbourne with Trevor McStay from October . I have finished a few prints that will be for sale in the store soon also . Rounding up I would like to thank my loyal client base for the ongoing support and choice in great tattoo ideas that are a pleasure to do , I am very priveledged to have so many quality projects on the go and many more on the drawing board .

Wishing you a great Easter

Rhys Gordon

Recent Work Aug 2010

After almost five great and prosperous years at Sydneyʼs finest Street and Custom studio, Inner Vision Tattoo, I am moving on to resume work at Josh Roelinkʼs Tatu Dharma in Chippendale. I am currently finishing up at Inner Vision at the end of September. I am leaving on great terms and remain strongly committed to my colleages, and customers, past and present. I look forward to this next chapter in my career and thank all involved over the last years, especially Cliffe Clayton and Kian Forreal. Both have helped me along the way so much. I will still be working Tuesday to Friday and will gladly tattoo those of you on my waiting list. For those who have a definate affection for Inner Vision I have passed this onto Cliffe and highly recomend him as an artist, his work speaks for itself and responsible for Inner Visions quality reputation. For those that choose to be Tattooed by me you are more than welcome to re confirm and I will let you know where you are on my wait list.

Also you'll find some examples of some mobile phone covers soon to be released and some more progress on a dragon.

Thanks, Rhys Gordon

Also Cliffe Clayton the owner of Inner Vision Tattoo is now back tattooing full time . Some of you may be contacted by him to see if you prefer not to wait for me , to check out his work view the shop website or come in and check out his latest portfolio.

Rhys Gordon has been tattooing since 1990. Originally from Melbourne, he spent 8 years working in Europe and Asia in many leading tattoo studios, attending numerous tattoo conventions and getting heavily tattooed himself. His preferred styles are Traditional, in both the Eastern and Western sense, and Script lettering. Rhys can easily design you a custom piece either from a reference or simply from good old fashioned ideas. Working with shape, form and flow he aims to design you something that you will be proud of and stand the test of time.
