My name is Brendan Grimes. I’ve been tattooing for 3 and a half years. I have been in a shop since I was 19 years old. I got involved in the tattoo industry as early as I could. I started by drawing tattoo designs for family and friends. After seeing a few designs of mine tattooed on people and getting a few tattoos myself, I knew this is what I wanted to do.

Personally, I love tattooing so it’s hard to pick one specific style I like most. Large scale Japanese and Traditional pieces resonate with me a little more than most. I really enjoy tattooing these pieces. I also enjoy some Black and Grey pieces as well as custom lettering. Cover-Ups are a possibility depending on the tattoo and the open-mindedness of the client. 

I’m always looking to push myself, so if you’re keen on starting a new project with me, please reach out! If you’re looking to buy prints/original artwork, you can buy them on this website or in person at the shop! I also do customized artwork as well so if you see something you like and want something specific for yourself or someone let me know!
