Rivals Match-up: "Absolutely No Brotherly Love Here," versus Jayvo Scott
Robbie Ripoll got his start apprenticing at his father's tattoo shop at the age of twelve, and was tattooing professionally long before graduating high school. After several years of working at the family business, the new school artist opened his own studio. Ripoll's competition is his older brother, Jayvo Scott. Although they were close as kids, the two have grown apart due to jealousy. Scott's struggling to catch up to his younger brother's success and Ripoll is getting territorial about the turf he acquired long ago. The feud has gotten physical in the past, but both ultimately seek to impress their dad, from whom they both learned the art of tattooing.
