John Patrick has been working on Tuesdays at Big River Tattoo for a few months now, but has recently started working on Fridays as well! Unlike the other artists at the shop, John Patrick’s tattoos are hand poked. Many of his pieces mix the geometric with the organic, but his subject matter is continually expanding. We’ve enjoyed having him here on Tuesdays and are so stoked for him to be here more days of the week. Email us at BigRiverTattooNJ@gmail.com and schedule an appointment. Check him out on instagram @roguepokes

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment with Dave!

London was great! Had fun hanging out and tattooing with my good friends, Guy Sahar and David Kafri.
Guy and his baby twin
I went to the London Tattoo convention while I was there.
Got tattooed by Alexandria Wilkey while at Love Hate Social Club London.
Also got tattooed by Emily Johnson at legendary UK shop, Into You Tattoo.
Ended the adventure with The Body Suits Scrolls Exhibition art show at Seven Door Tattoos.
I’m already looking forward to getting back to London again next Spring.
