One Man's Story

Wally is the resident tattooist & big boss at UGT.

He has been tattooing since 1998, training in his craft in Sydney, Australia, where he was tattooing professionally for several years. After returning to Ireland, Wally worked in Dublin for a number of years, before making his move to the glorious north west in beautiful county Sligo.

Wally is well experienced in most styles of tattooing (see gallery) and is well known both nationally and internationally for his evocative and fluid freehand Polynesian & Tribal work.

Having lived Down Under for over ten years he has had extensive personal & professional exposure to Polynesian art, culture and tradition. These experiences greatly influence his work, tattoo & life style today.

Urban Gorilla is an easy find along the well traversed Water Lane. We are located on the first floor opposite Winterwood Kitchen design place. The lane runs down from Castle Street leading to a pedestrian bridge across the Garavogue River. Parking is available in Stephen Street car park, John F Kennedy Parade, Connaughton Road and Tesco/Dunnes car park.
