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.

Rich Cahill Studio is officially Big River Tattoo!

We’ve turned the studio into a shop. The walls have been repainted, we’ve got flash framed and hanging on the walls. Art from friends and from around the world have been matted and hung. New lights, new stations, new artists.

Shoot me an email at changfreely@gmail.com or bigrivertattoonj@gmail.com to make an appointment.
