Tyler Bloomingdale

Artist

Hi I’m Tyler and I’m the owner and operator of Warhawk Tattoo in Layton, Utah. I’ve been tattooing professionally since 2007. I specialize in neo-traditional, neo-Japanese and realistic/surrealistic tattooing.
Art has been my passion for as long as I can remember. It doesn’t really matter what medium I’m using I just need to create.
Personally I’m a father of two kids one of which is following in my footsteps in California as a young adult and my second is a toddler.
I currently train other artists in the craft of tattooing and try to preserve the traditions of our culture by sharing what I have learned along the way.
If I were to leave you with anything to know me know that my legacy will be passed on to those who have the desire to push themselves further than they believe possible and that humility is the goal.

Casey Shaw

Artist

My name is Casey Shaw and I'm a tattoo artist from Keene, TX.

I'm happily married to Brittany Shaw and we have  5 babies.

I started my apprenticeship in 2008, since then I've tattooed off and on but didn’t take it seriously until the last 4 years.

I specialize in color tattoos traditional/neo-traditional small color.

My favorite thing about tattooing is the bonds you can make with people over a piece of art.  If it’s a meaningful tattoo or even just a funny tattoo there’s always a good story behind it. I do it for my kids also to show them to never give up on their dreams no matter what.

I plan on tattooing for as long as I can and hopefully at least 1 of my 5 kids will take over one day.

I have won a few awards in the past two years thanks to friends and mentors guiding me along the way. I think the key thing is being around like-minded people. I never thought I would get here and I still have a lot to learn and plenty of room to grow for my future.

Micky Dagger

Artist

I left the Kansas City Art institute, and wanted a viable career in art.  Through life circumstances I found tattooing and fell in love with the art and culture, and decided to start an apprenticeship.  I started in 2006, so I've been tattooing for about 16 years now.  My favorite style is anything XXL.  The bigger the better.  I love imagery that promotes emotion and is in your face.  The best part is being able to connect with clients and be a part of their journey in my small way.  Whether it's helping them grieve through celestial tattooing, overcoming past trauma, or even giving someone their first tattoo and helping them make a statement of individuality, it means the world to me.  Dagger knows best!

Jessica Star

Artist

Hey there! I'm Jessica Star, the owner of Kestrel Collective in Bucks County Pa. I’m a neuro-divergent tattoo artist and I've been tattooing professionally for 12 years. My favorite styles are neo-traditional illustrative, Japanese, and Black & Grey. But I’m not just a tattoo artist; I enjoy working with other mediums as a commission artist. My talents range from digital design, fine art, to oil, acrylic, and water color painting. But tattooing has always played a huge roll in my life. Whether it was drawing tattoos for classmates in high-school or just witnessing family members journey their own tattoo careers. I just adore the physical action of tattooing as well as helping someones vision come to life! Its my world and is always a topic of discussion for me! But as much as I can't stop working I definitely love my time at home. Where I get to spend time with my loved ones and my 4 fur babies! I have an Italian Greyhound name Herman and a Chiweenie mix named Ted. They have 2 kitty siblings named Jake the snake and Bobby haha she's a little orange tabby girl. My animals and my family are my everything. Without them I wouldn't have gotten through some of these tough times this industry provides. So to them, I love you and thank you everyday for being by my side and showing your support. At the end of the day, tattooing is my passion my love and my life and I look forward to the many more adventures in the future to come!

Greyson Grimm

Artist

I am Greyson Grimm based in Midvale Utah at the dark arts tattoo . I have been tattooing for eight years. 

 

I was inspired by my brothers Branden and Thomas to push forward with my tattoo career , my previous background before tattooing was graffiti. Once I was introduced to tattooing an obsession took over and tattooing became my world . I was a Street kid that had never been anywhere, until tattooing I realized with skills behind a machine I could go anywhere! I did exactly that, I spent 3 and a half years in Germany tattooing in 2016 . I Returned back to my home town of Salt Lake City Utah in 2019 where I’ve been for the last 5 years. I focus and study impressionistic and contemporary styles of realism in High contrast black and gray technique , I have been focused in this style for the last three years and I have loved every second of it.

 

On my days off you can generally catch me hanging out with my beautiful woman, relaxing at home ,  life , and plotting world domination!
