Brian Kelly began tattooing near the turn of the century in Minneapolis, MN. He later moved to Ireland and then to Berlin around 2008 or 2009. Along the way, inspired by the great masters of tattooing, he taught himself how to paint tattoo flash. Brian Kelly considers his work to be New Traditional, which is a re-imagined version of Traditional tattoo designs, sometimes referred to as "old school". He is not offended, however, if you call his designs Neo Traditional or even New School. You can see and purchase his efforts here.
