Tyler Straw (aka Strawberry) began his tattoo career in 2011 in St. Paul MN. He joined the Thrash’s crew in early October, 2017. “I’m grateful to my mentor, Garrett Rautio who pushed me to excel and inspired a love of learning. You’re never done, and there’s always room for growth.” Early on, he fell in love with all things Black & Gray as well as Traditional, but is by no means limited to a certain realm. Inspired by “Low Rider cholo lettering” he can lay down decorative script like no body’s business. Also a talented painter, you will often see herons, cranes, and other birds as his subject matter; ideas he would love to see in his chair as a tattooer. “I always loved painting since I was a kid, and tattooing just seemed like the next step for me” he said. When Tyler is not tattooing, you might find him somewhere in the hills- fishing pole in tow.
