Rich Wren

Relic Tattoo Studio Owner and FOunder

Since childhood I was always interested in art/illustration. I would draw Yoshi, Mario and Street Fighter characters for the entertainment of my friends.
As time went on I became deeply interested in graffiti and spent countless hours in freight yards painting freights trains.

I went to community college and while taking all the art classes available I discovered Glassblowing.
Quickly became obsessed with glass and applied to and successfully got in Tyler School of Art (Temple University) where I received a Bachelors in Glassblowing. While at Tyler taking electives I became skilled in moldmaking, welding, and work with nearly all materials. Art school being super expensive, I figured I’d play into my Illustrative inclinations. I taught myself how to tattoo out of my house ( I know, I know it’s very bad, but 18 years ago there weren’t the same resources people have nowadays and very few shops around.)
After about a year or so of house tattooing I brought my tattoo portfolio to local shops and eventually got accepted to one that gave me little guidance.

I got tattooed by everyone I admired to learn as much as I could from watching them work.
After approx 9 years working for other people I finally opened Relic Tattoo studio and have been operational for 10 years.

I started to develop my own personal style and take the things I find deeply fascinating and attempt to make them interesting to others through my illustrations. The occult, the spooky, witches, magic, aliens and monsters.
