We are almost done working on the new location! All of us are really excited about the move and the brand new space. We’ve been working hard to make it our own and there are only a couple things left to do before we can move in. Our new location is just down the road on the second floor of 29 Race Street Frenchtown, New Jersey 08825. It is right next the National Hotel and the sculpture garden, featuring sculptures by Christopher Hiltey from the Merge Gallery. There are a lot of cool galleries, shops, and things happening on that side of town! We can’t wait to be apart of it!

We will be in the new space November 1st, 2016.

Pagoda City Tattoo Fest

I always have a blast at Pagoda City Tattoo Fest and this year did not disappoint! It’s an incredible experience getting to work with so many talented artists and fun clients. The staff did a great job putting together the event and running everything. These are just a couple of the tattoos I did during the Tattoo Fest. I’m already looking forward to next year!

Dave Shoemaker

Big River Tattoo is in full swing! Our doors are open and we have new artists on board.

We are very proud and excited to welcome Dave Shoemaker to the shop! Dave has been tattooing for over 25 years. While Dave is diverse in style, he brings something very new to the shop: Polynesian tattoos. His Polynesian tribal tattoos are rich and clean as he pays close attention to how the designs contour the body. Dave has said that he wants his tattoos to “be grounded in the past, enabling them to stand up to the test of time”.

He will be here every Friday.

Email changfreely@gmail.com to schedule an appointment with Dave!
