Tim has been tattooing for over 10 years, and has owned Great Whale since opening it in 2014. Generally Tim tim takes on traditional Japanese, and ornamental blackwork projects. During walk in days, however, he’s happy to do whatever you’d like. When not tattooing, Tim spends the majority of his time painting, writing music, doing yoga, hiking and rock climbing, walking his dog, and taking in movies and books that he feels “wrinkle the brain” the way he prefers.  

“As a multitasker to complete fault: tattooing has always been a place that i can escape to, for  total and singular focus. I find this hard to accomplish in most other aspects of life; and for that gift, I sincerely love tattooing and my work. “

While Tim specializes in Japanese, he also prides himself on being able to bring most subject matter into that stylistic realm. So, don’t think you have to get a Koi fish to get a tattoo with Tim!
