Welcome 2018!

Happy New Year everyone! We are off to a great start here at the shop and hope you are too!

Rich has been taking a lot of photos using a 35mm film camera of his healed work, so we figured this would be a great to update the site with some new photos! Take a look at them here:

Happy Holidays from Big River Tattoo

 

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and are getting ready to enjoy your New Year!
This has been a great year at the shop and we are all looking forward to 2018. We’ve had so many wonderful clients come through our doors and so many rad tattoos leave our shop. We’ve had amazing artists tattoo with us this year at Big River Tattoo. Thank you to everyone who made 2017 great!

November Tattoos

This past month flew by. Between having Mike Riveley join us, Thanksgiving, and all of the great tattoos and clients we’ve had, November was a whirlwind of a month. Here’s a little selection of the tattoos that were done at the shop this November. We’re booking for the new year so be sure to send an email to bigrivertattoonj@gmail.com to get something in the book!

Rich did this rad black and grey octopus for Stephanie.

Rich did this mandala for Patrick, featuring some teal as a personal touch and meaning for the tattoo.

A tiger for Dane by Rich.

This is a work in progress shot, but Mike put a lot of hours into Justin’s sleeve that day.

Tattoo videos

Sometimes a photograph doesn’t do a tattoo justice. Since the body moves and the tattoos wrap around limbs and curves, it can be a totally different perceptive when viewed in motion. Here are a few videos taken of Rich’s and Mike’s tattoos.
