Russell, also known as “Detour”, is a New London native. He has traveled across the country, living in areas from Connecticut to New Mexico. His tattoo career spans over a decade and has expanded with learning different techniques and styles from all over the country. While he specializes in a “dark arts” style, it is not what he is limited to. He caters to all degrees of styles such as American Traditional, water color, and cultural. He loves drawing custom pieces as it is a means to personally connect with his clientele and deliver a masterpiece suited for each individual. In his free time he expands his artistic abilities to music and photoshop. As an avid gamer, he has become well versed in gaming tattoos and has designed pieces from old school 8-bit to intricate and detailed current games.
