Tattoo Artist & Owner
Robbie Ripoll is a name known around the world. His artistic specialties include New School, Realism, Surrealism, Bold Color, and Undetectable Coverups. The things this guy can achieve with a needle in the skin have been referred to as magic more times than can be counted.
A 25+ year tattoo veteran and Florida native, Robbie has been on the number one tattoo competition tv show Inkmaster, featured in Inkedmag YouTube videos and a ton of other press, won a bunch of awards for his tattoos, and is an overall super Rad human!!!
Robbie is one of the most badass amputees and motivational speakers you’ll ever meet! His story is not for the faint of heart but will make you feel… growth is his most impressive skill as he turns every situation into a winning or a learning experience. Speaking of learning experiences, Robbie is the creator of The Rad Movement, a motivational platform that he created to change the lives of humans who resonate with the message of love and living our best lives.
An avid wakeboarder (even with one leg), gym rat, lover, father, tattoo artist, car enthusiast, visionary, spouse, friend, and someone who gives a fuck about you, Robbie is the choice for anyone who wants to have the Rolls Royce of tattoo experiences.
Billy Haydock has been one of the best things about tattooing in Brevard county for over ten years. Coming to Florida by way of California, Billy has achieved many things in his life from being a sponsored snowboarder to working with members of the legendary punk band The Misfits, to becoming one of Melbourne Florida’s premier tattoo artists.
Billy and Robbie started working together about 5 years ago and the rest is history. Doing an array of art styles through his tattoo career, Billy has found himself gravitating towards the art forms of Illustrative Pointillism, Geometric, and Japanese inspired dark imagery.
Billy is a bright shining light in the world and is a massive pleasure to be around. If you find yourself lucky enough to have a tattoo from him your life may be forever changed. A family man, a sweetheart, a beautiful soul, you’re sure to love any piece of artwork he creates on you for this lifetime and possibly a few more after.
Abby has found her tattoo home at Rad Ink. From Costa rica to the Bronx, She soon cut her teeth into the tattoo shops of South Florida where life is more fast paced and crazy, so the laid back nature of Brevard county and our shop are a greatly appreciated change for her.
It’s amazing how seamlessly she has integrated into the culture here, and we’re so excited to work with her! She’s got such a light and fun personality while also holding space for all that grace her chair. Being zany and down to earth are the opposite ends of the spectrum that she brings and we love that dichotomy so damn much! Being a sparky human and artist makes it easy to get the most enjoyable of tattoo experiences from Abby.
She does super clean and solid tattoos no matter what style or subject matter comes her way. A tattoo style she is super passionate about is lettering and is always willing to put together the lettering tattoo of your dreams. On her off time she enjoys the people who mean most, plays softball, and makes watercolor paintings. She’s finally found a place to grow and build by making a move upto Melbourne and joining our team, and we couldn’t be happier for her to find us and become a part of the family.
If you’re looking for an upbeat, creative, super quality tattoo then you will never go wrong booking with Abby. She’s happy to take a walk-in for anything mild to wild and will also be excited to schedule you for an appointment at a later date
Donna is one of our owners and the original “shop mom”. She is one of the originators of Rad Ink and has been a huge part of studio design, customer service standards, branding, operations, human love and support, our website, and more.
Being a full time mom to her and Robbies son Zen has her stepping back from the day to day roles and is focusing her attention on taking care of baby Zen, managing and editing our website, as well as handling a number of behind the scenes tasks including promotional work.
