Bob Tyrrell’s Facebook page is testament to just how much respect and love this man earned over the years, with artists and collectors alike acknowledging Billy’s dedication to tattooing.

May Billy Eason rest well and those who follow in his footsteps remember that all of us involved in the tattoo world stand on the shoulders of giants.
