After Kyle received his first tattoo in 1998 he was hooked. He began hanging out and getting tattooed in shops for the next eight years. It was around this time he decided that tattooing was his calling, and in 2006, began to make his way into tattooing. By 2008 Kyle was tattooing full time. In 2011, Kyle and his long time friend Metal Mike opened the doors of Tiger Rose Tattoo. Kyle takes much pride in the art of tattooing as well as its history.
“I strive for every tattoo to be my best, no matter how big or small, or what the subject matter is. I treat everyone I tattoo with respect, for it is truly an honor they picked me to tattoo them.” – Kyle Skyer
