Toby Gehrlich is a soft-spoken guy that lets his tattooing do all the talking. Toby Gehrlich is a refined oil painter that brings his rich talents to the skin as a resident artist and part of the talented crew of RedTree Tattoo Gallery. Toby enjoys working in many mediums of art and consistently creates smooth and flowing images on skin as well as with oils on canvas. Toby grew up on the outskirts of the village Botkins, just 50 miles north of Dayton, Ohio. Spending countless hours in the woods surrounding his home, Toby formed an imaginary world that has influenced his artwork even to this day.
Toby began drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil. Only interested in graphite or black and gray drawing as a kid Toby, after long encouragement from his parents, picked up painting in acrylics at the age of 20. In 2000, an opportunity arose in the form of an apprenticeship in tattooing. Toby jumped at the chance and soon found himself tattooing full-time out of a small shop in Wapakoneta. After spending a year and a half in that first shop, Toby thought it time to move forward to larger opportunities. He has recently moved back to Columbus and has had the pleasure to work alongside great artists in Columbus’s premier tattoo shop.
When Toby isn’t officially on the clock, he’s working to perfect his art in all aspects or working on paintings for his personal art shows as well as various art shows that he exhibits his work in around the world. Be sure to check out his portfolio on the RedTree website and contact him to begin your next tattoo project.
