Half Sleeve – The Process

Bigger tattoos take multiple sessions to complete. Each session is a progression, starting with line work and making its way through shading, background, and color, depending on the piece. Our client Jim came in for his first tattoo, a dragon half sleeve and we took a few videos of the progress of the piece. Rich Cahill and Jim wrapped up the half sleeve today and we were all excited to see the end result.

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!┬áDave 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!
