Bubba Irwin is no stranger when it comes to tattooing country superstars, the famed tattoo artist has inked stars like Kane Brown, Jason Aldean, Brett Young and many others.
On Monday (Sept. 28), Irwin added Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard to his star-studded list of clients with a very impressive, detailed lion tattoo.
The Ink Master Champion tattoo artist says that this tattoo brought his career full circle as when he first met his client Kane Brown on Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Dig Your Roots Tour,’ which happens to be Brown’s first-ever tour, he knew he had to tattoo the FGL guys one day. While watching the country duo’s set, he told his friend Carter Mitchell that the duo is “so rad” and that he has to tattoo them one day.
“When your career comes around full circle!!!!!!’ Today completed a chapter in my life that means more to me than most people will ever know, and it started when i met @kanebrown_music, @katelynbrown and @nikkiboon on their dig your roots tour with Florida Georgia Line. I was so pumped to meet Kane and the gang, and the show was amazing as you can imagine. As I was watching the headliner’s FGL, I told my buddy @cartermitchell_az I have to tattoo those dudes some day, they’re so rad…” Irwin captioned the video clip of Hubbard’s new ink. “Well, it finally happened and @tylerhubbard is so dope. I cant say enough how lucky i feel with this life and the people in it, everyone I’m meeting along the way just keeps humbling me in every sense of the word. So i just thought I’d share with you all how important and fun manifesting can be… hope you all keep at it!!!!!”
Country artist Mitchell Tenpenny even commented on the piece saying “That’s f-cking amazing man.”
