Resident 72 Tattoo Artists
Gavin Rourke left school with dreams of becoming a musician which he achieved with moderate success with the band Dog Toffee where he first met Sean Lyons.
Grew up in Urmston knowing that he wanted to be a tattoo artist before getting his first tattoo on his eighteenth birthday. This made the passion to become an artist stronger and although no formal art training JBomb had a keen interest in the art of tattooing.
After 10 years of doing freelance artwork, which also included studying at the Glasgow School of Art, Craig completed 4 years of a tattooing apprenticeship before working full time as a tattooist. He has worked all over the UK, building up a loyal client base and has now found a home at the glorious 72.
After completing a degree in Product design Ben decided to pursue a career in tattooing, he has been with 72 Tattoo since March 2014
