Russell Widner, Co-Owner/Artist at Trilogy Tattoos
After an apprenticeship in Macon Georgia, Russell started tattooing part time in 2000. Deciding it was time to make tattooing his full time priority, Russell moved to Tampa in 2004 and began tattooing full time. In 2010 Russell, along with friends Squire Strahan and Alex Knox, decided the time was right to open a shop of their own. January 1, 2011 Trilogy Tattoos opened. Russell describes his style a "tough and classy" and enjoys doing custom tattoos of all sizes, especially skulls. When he's not tattooing, Russell also does watercolor painting and the occasional oil or acrylic painting.
