Tiksteve started tattooing in 2000 at a small studio Fantasies in Flesh located in Ridge NY. After his start there he moved on to several studios over the next year until landing at Lucky cat Tattoo a studio in Miller Place NY, where he stayed until 2006 when he opened up Electric Tiki Tattoo in Holbrook NY. He kept Electric Tiki Tattoo open for 4 years and then decided to downsize to a smaller more personal studio. In 2010 he opened Studio 520 in Oakdale NY, after 3 years Tikisteve decided to close his studio and move away from ownership. That is when he went to work at Irish Jay Tattoo in Miller Place NY, and has been working there since December of 2013.
Thank you very much for your interest in my work. This page is to showcase my artwork in both tattooing and other forms. Thank you for looking and hope to hear from you in the future.
I do cover-ups occasionally but what will work and what will not is based on what we will be covering up. Be aware that cover-ups will usually be larger than the original tattoo, and will often take more time and/or multiple sessions to complete.
With very few exceptions, there are some tattoo styles that I do not do such as tribal,celtic,and portraits
I also DO NOT tattoo FINGERS OR FACES
For larger work such as sleeves and back pieces, it is important to understand that it is a commitment both financially and of time. Appointments are set every 2-3 weeks until completion unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
On average, I am booked 2-3 months in advance; cancellations do occur and I am sometimes able to provide a sooner appointment with short notice. I have a current waiting list of clients waiting for openings, in the event of a cancellation, they will be handled in the order received; to be on the list you MUST have an appointment set up already.
