Bobby Glennon - Resident Artist of Pure Ink Tattoo Studios in Ledgewood, NJ
Bobby Glennon, aka Tattoo Bob started tattooing in 1994, and started piercing in 1999. Bobby’s passion for tattooing started early.
Around the age 9 Bobby was attending a freak show at the Delaware state fair. At the end of the show near the exit there was tattoo stand. He stopped, hung out and pretty much had to be dragged out of there. A love was started and shortly after started getting tattooed at the age of 18. Still in high school Bobby went to his first convention, National Tattoo Society at the MEADOWLANDS in NJ. It was there at the convention that his love turned into a passion. By the time Bobby got out of high school, he was half sleeved. Around 1993, Bobby was working in construction and still getting heavily tattooed. Bobby had become a serious tattoo collector. He got most of his big tattoo work done by artists like Joe Capobianco
, Kat Von Dee
, and Eric Merill
. His main tattoo artist at the time asked him if he had any interest in learning the trade. Bobby never thought he would ever get the opportunity to become a tattoo artist, so he grabbed a hold of that chance and ran with it! During his apprenticeship Bobby an important rule to live by and has stuck by it 'til this day.
"If you treat tattooing good, tattooing will take care of you."
Almost 25 years later and Bobby shows truth to those words on the daily.
"My passion has paid off and I have been lucky enough to be able to earn an honest living doing something that I absolutely love... it's life changing for sure!"
