Ghosts aren’t the most common tattoo request at the shop, but Mike tattooed two of them this week. One being a goat ghost and the other being Oiwa, a vengeful ghost from the Japanese ghost story Yotsuya Kaidan. Mike had a blast tattooing these two! We’re so glad to have clients with such awesome tattoo ideas. Keep them coming!
Mike has been at the shop for a month now and we couldn’t be more pleased. He’s been creating awesome tattoos and we are proud to have him full time at the shop. These are some of the tattoos he did this past month. Come in and get tattooed!
We have some new things going on here at Big River Tattoo! We now have gift certificates available in the shop! If you need a great gift for the holidays or for a birthday or any celebration, stop in and pick one up!

This April Danny Boy from Rising Tide Tattoo in Colorado will be a guest artist at the shop. He’s been tattooing professionally for over 12 years and has tattooed all over the country. His specialty is bold, colorful traditional tattoos. We’re excited for him to be tattooing at Big River Tattoo April 15th and April 16th! Email BigRiverTattooNJ@gmail.com to schedule an appointment.

I am happy to announce that I have been studying and working in the art of Tebori, a traditional Japanese method of tattooing. Tebori, a form of hand tattooing, uses a long steel needle instead of standard tattoo machine. The insertion of the steel needle creates a dense richness in color, as well as allowing for a wide gradation of colors. Following tradition, I handcrafted my needle tool. Outside of Japan, Tebori is rarely practiced. I’m so excited to bring this ancient experience to New Jersey!
