But, it wasn’t always this way

In his early years, he fell in with the wrong crowd, which led to a 7-year stint in prison. Many believe that a jail sentence can lead to even darker paths. But, for a young Robert Pho, it was a lifesaver. It was here that he fell in love with the art and technique of black and white tattoos and his passion for the genre was ignited.

After he served his time, Robert decided to open up a shop in North Carolina but was faced with bureaucratic red tape and community disapproval. Thankfully, his determination helped him to cut through his obstacles and gain the approval of the community. His passion was palpable and his ability to share his love of the art turned him into quite a successful tattoo activist.

Just a few years later, he relocated to Las Vegas and opened up a new studio. His intention wasn’t to build one of the largest tattoo shops in the area. But, somehow, things just happened to work out this way. His only desire was to create a space that would accommodate artists, families, and friends. And, in so doing, Skin Design Tattoos turned into a space that personifies the spirit and essence of the Las Vegas Nightlife.
