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.

Big River Tattoo is home to a large collection of vintage flash. Rich recently put up new flash, filling the rest of the entranceway. We are proud to display flash by Bart Bingham, Paul Rogers, Jensen Detroit, Bill Loika, Lee Roy Minugh, Owen Jensen, L.L. McKeevey, Herbert Hoffman, Horiyuki (Jill Bonny), and Colin Laroque. We have a little bit of everything and we would love to tattoo these pieces, so feel free to pick one off the wall!

A Day With Dan Santoro

 

Screen Shot 2017-05-05 at 4.07.51 PMDan Santoro joined us yesterday at Big River Tattoo and spent the day tattooing at the shop. It was great having him here! Dan was booked all day with his bold, traditional tattoos.

16 years ago, Rich took Dan as his apprentice and got him started in the world of tattooing. It was great for the two artists to work along side each other again. We’re looking forward to having Dan guest spot at Big River Tattoo again in the future!

Check out Dan’s work on his instagram @dan_santoro
