Hi I am Darren Brauders, I have been tattooing since 2000. I dreamed about becoming a tattoo artist since I was a kid, I have always had a love and passion for art. When I started in the tattoo industry in 2000, it was extremely difficult to get into a studio but when you have a dream and you are persistent, things will fall into place and luckily enough, I finally got an opportunity. It was a tough old school apprenticeship, no wages and worked like a dog.
These are the moments that shape the adult you become. My passion for art and creativity is burning as bright today as it was when I was a kid. Going into Colour Works doesn’t feel like going into work. It’s more like a social environment where the best of the best can expand their creative minds to produce some of Irelands’ best tattoos. I am here to use my experience with your ideas to create a special memory for you. I specialise in Japanese large scale work or small, whatever suits my customers. If you are interested in being tattooed by me, we will be delighted to assist you with any questions, if you have made it to the end thanks for taking the time to read this!
