"I started tattooing in 1965,when I was in the army Posted in Edmonton Alberta, although I must say I didn't tattooing or what I had learned about the art seriously till 1975,as I became more interest in airbrushing, sign painting, screen printing and fine art. Even though I work successfully in all these fields in the late sixties and early seventies there always seemed to be something missing,and after spending the winter of 1976 working with severe breathing problems that turned out to be walking pneumonia my doctor ask me if I was still airbrushing and spray painting and when I told her I was,she informed me that if I continued,because of what I was breathing in when working that it was unlikely that I was going to get better and would likely die,so after some consideration I decided to take tattooing seriously,within a week of that decision I meet Paul Artue and Bill Freeman also known as Tattoo Manitou. Bill owned Midway Tattoo and Paul work there,they both invited me to work with them, which I did and have never looked back.In 1978 I opened Dragonfly Tattoo at 1382 Danforth Av in Toronto and that shop stayed opened till 1986 when I moved to New York city NY after about six months there I moved back to Toronto Tattooed privately and worked in the movie industry for about a year till I moved to Ottawa and reopened Dragonfly I was there for five years closed the shop and went to work for Boundless Ecstasy in St.Catherines On.for a year and a half and with Steve Stricker at Wyld Tattoo in Hamilton On. for six month when I had my fifth heart attack and had to take time off to recover. In 1998 moved to Gardenhill On. and worked for Taboo Tattoo for six months,in Whitby ON. than opened In The Skin Tattooing on Dundas ST and after two years changed the shop name to Indelibly Yours freehand Tattooing after a falling out with my partner,and continued to work under that name for the next seventeen years, closing the shop after a triple bypass in 2011, after recovering I worked for a short time in Prickering ON. at Ink Monkeys Tattoo shop,than for The Madbohemian Tattoo shop in Bowmanvile with Mark Peterkin for four years. After leaving Madbohemian I took a year and a half off and now work for BlackWatch Tattoo in Oshawa. CREDITS include the first Canadian tattoo artist to receive from Outlaw Biker magazine and the Professional Tattooist Guild a tattooist aware of the month 1986,along with many articles in the magazine about tattooing. First tattoo artist to be interview by the Canada AM television morning show 1985, Interview in 1985 on air by CHUM FM, Three documentaries filmed about tattooing and myself by York university,( Midway Tattoo) 1978 channel 9 ( CFTO) 1982 and Rogers television 1985 (Dragonfly Tattoo), Interview by Jamie James for his book History of Canadian Tattooing in 2014 which I believe is written from a academic point of view and Ned Burwells book on the same subject but from a artists point of view First Tattooist to be invited to work at the Toronto Motorcycle Swap Meet I believe that was 1981 or 2 , Worked with an helped Dee Day of Adventure Tattoo put on the first tattoo convention held in Ontario in Barrie and I believe that was in the winter of 1983, Was a judge at The Great Northern Tattoo convention in Pettwawa ON, put on by the Wizards Den Tattoo shop located in the same town. Worked and judged at the Royal City Tattoo Convention I believe that was in 1995 or 6." Richard Bear
