Here at Tattoo Angus, we have a team of six tattoo artists that absolutely love what they do. Their love for their art shines through in their amazing tattoos and the way that they interact with their clients. With more than twenty five years of collective experience between them, you are sure to find an artist that can help you achieve your tattoo dream here at Tattoo Angus. While all of our artists can achieve great results with any style, they are well aware of their colleagues talents and if they believe that another artist in the shop will execute your idea in a way that you like more, they will bring you to that artist. We realize that a tattoo is the one thing in your life that you will pay for and have forever. We want to make sure that you have something you love.
Bill Rhine is one of our artists here. He specializes in realistic style tattoos, both in black and grey as well as color. In addition, Bill also has a knack for doing cartoon pieces, such as Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Zelda, Mario and more. Bill is a great artist to sit with, as his bedside manner is top notch. He has years of experience and has traveled to many conventions, leaving a wonderfully executed tattoo on so many clients. Anyone in the market for a realism tattoo should definitely visit Bill!
Matt Wilcox is another member of our team at Tattoo Angus. With an extensive history of tattoo experience, Matt tends to specialize in the traditional Japanese style of tattooing. He is especially skilled with hamsa masks and Japanese dragons, executing great pieces that are saturated with color (or not, depending on what the client wants). He uses tried and true ways to tattoo his clients, with a great end result and a happy customer. If you’re looking for a Japanese style tattoo, Matt is the artist that you want to visit!
Dave McCormick has about twenty years of tattooing experience. He has been with Tattoo Angus & Spider-Bite Body Piercing for a great deal of time, not only producing awesome large pieces but taking on any walk in tattoo that he can. He has great skill in floral work, as well as black and grey tattoos. Pretty much able to take on anything, Dave M. is a great artist who has a wide variety of talents so if you have some crazy idea, Dave is the one to see!
Jeff Lindh is newer to the industry and has only been tattooing for four years but has managed to find a solid niche in traditional tattooing. With thick lines, whip shading, and heavily saturated color, Jeff is definitely your guy for traditional work. From eagles to skulls to mountain ranges, you are definitely going to be a fan of his work! Not to mention he has an excellent bedside manner that will make you feel welcome and comfortable during your time sitting with him.
Ray is another jack of all trades, specializing in soft colors and solid lines, who has a great deal of experience tattooing under his belt. His style is definitely the most illustrative of the group and he does wonderfully with the whimsical tattoos. With a great deal of drawing and painting in his background, he especially loves to execute anime, cartoons and other popular references. If the tattoo that you are after sounds whimsical and fun, it is probably something Ray would love to do!
Our sixth artist is Dave Costella, who is the newest addition to our shop. He joined us over this last summer and like Jeff, specializes in the traditional style of tattooing. His lines are solid and his color saturation is on point. Even though Dave has not been tattooing as long as some of the other artists here, he is definitely able to execute a great tattoo that you are sure to love! Stop by and see him if you are interested in a traditional tattoo! Dave is also really skilled with lettering and fonts so if that is what you are interested in getting, come see him!
