My name is - Anrijs Straume. Born in Riga, Latvia.

Specialising in Black and Grey Horror/Realism Portraits and Lettering tattoos.

Founder of Dark Trash Realism Tattoo style. 

 

"I began my tattoo career back in 2008 in Latvia. 

It led me to find a tattoo apprenticeship at “Studio One Tattoo” in Derby, UK in 2009.

Many years of working in "street shop" studios introduced me to many different styles of tattooing. Experience I gained there and working in many conventions around the world, helped me invent my own remarkable style of tattoos that is known today as - Dark Trash Realism. 

Combination of Horror Realism/ Dark Lettering  and atmospheric surrealism."

 

By creating a new style of tattoos, my unique work has become well known within the tattoo community and sought after by tattoo collectors all around the world.


 

I also strongly believe sharing your knowledge is incredibly important which is why I have run a YouTube channel for many years sharing my knowledge and educating other artists in the Tattoo community, as much as I can!

 

I'm passionate about art and always want to help new artists find their own path.

With that in mind I self published my own book - "10 years of tattooing , Art and Story book"

Together with a Documentary -  "10 years of tattooing - The Story" - Available for FREE on YouTube.

It follows my journey through life, art, studio experience and the journey of creating my own style and the path to world recognition!

 

Currently I work on appointment only basis in studio - Bold as Brass Tattoo Co. (Liverpool, United Kingdom)
