Sleeve Finished

Made over at least half a dozen sessions, we’ve finally finished this sleeve. This is exactly the kind of tattooing I love doing best. There is a big mix here of Eastern and Western images, original drawings, traditional designs, and small symbols.


Recent Tattoos

Here are some of the tattoos I’ve been fortunate enough to work on lately at Historic Tattoo.

New Book

‘Handbook for the traveling tattooer’ a gift from a friend, he left with a gift of a tattoo from the book. Tattooing and traveling go hand in hand. This little book of Historic Flash would be perfect to take on the road. 



Full day rates available

My client Harry sat for 3 individual tattoos in a single session. My favorite way to work is to have clients who want to take the extra step by sitting longer to get some real coverage made. Contact me if you think you’d like to sit for a full day and get some serious tattoos.

We will be having our first Friday the 13th party at Historic Tattoo, in February 2015. Tattoos with a ’13’ available for $80 and up from the Sailor Jerry 13 posters painted by Tyson.


August 2014 Tattoos

Here are a few Tattoos from Historic Tattoo during the month of August. Thanks to my clients old and new.

Owl and Skull Tattoo by Tyson Arndt

Owl and Skull Tattoo

An Owl and Skull Tattoo I recently made at Historic Tattoo. The design is based on an image in the book Flash From The Past showcasing Tattoo Flash from 1890-1965.

Tiger Claw Tattoo by Tyson Arndt

Claw Tattoo

Made at Historic Tattoo on the same client with the Owl and Skull Tattoo. A small filler tattoo perfect for someone trying to fill a little gap between tattoos.

Trondheim Tattoo Convention

Trondheim Convention

There will be prints (A3 size) available at the upcoming Trondheim Tattoo Convention (5-7 Sept 2014).  Looking forward to traveling & tattooing in Scandinavia. I believe this is my 4th year at this Convention, it is the oldest Tattoo Convention in Norway.
