Dallas, Texas

Another awesome visit to Elm Street Tattoo for a weekend in February.

This tattoo shop is so much fun, open late into the night and there is an awesome crew of tattooers working.

I often visit Dallas to work, if you want to get tattooed at a future visit send an email to tonybigtime (at) gmail.com


Instant Sleeve

Here is a project I’ve just started. Came prepared to work with several traditional images I put together at home. I stenciled and outlined everything, he was able to handle the shading and coloring for half of the tattoos. All this work took 3 hours. I love working on these kinds of tattoo sleeves.

From Hawaii to Helsinki

Spent 2 nights on airplanes traveling from Maui to Portland and a few hours later took the flight to Amsterdam and directly got my flight to Helsinki. Landed just a few hours before the convention started!


After Party

After party for Heksinki Ink was at a really cool antique store. They had the party here 2 years in a row. There is food, alcohol, and a live band.

Charity Auction

Charity art auction with Finnish artists.


Helsinki Ink Tattoo Convention

Helsinki Ink Convention is held every year at Kaapeli ‘Cable Factory’. This was the 21st year of the show, Europes 2nd oldest tattoo convention after Berlin.

I’ve been at this event every year since 2010. It’s an awesome tattoo convention with something new or different to offer every year. Luckily I have a few repeat customers who get tattooed every year.

Shared my booth with Seth Ciferri also from Portland. It was awesome working together at the show.

Old Stomping Grounds

Inside the studio, Stockholm Classic Tattoo.



Food is a big part of any culture. These images are from one of my favorite Bakeries on Södermalm. Typical that we go out to eat or get coffee before starting a work day at Stockholm Classic Tattoo.


A few tattoos from Stockholm.
