ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (KWQC) – When Ron O’Tool was growing up in Alpha, Illinois, he knew he was gifted as an artist.
The only question is what he would eventually do with his talent.
In the mid-90s, O’Tool saw his first tattoo performed and was hooked.
He opened his first shop in Rock Island in 1999, becoming so successful that he later opened another location across the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa.
Today, O’Tool Design Custom Tattoo is a thriving business where people in the Quad Cities Area go to get inked.
