Meet Rick Trip, owner and lead tattoo artist at Trip Ink Tattoo Company. He’s known as being one of the most talented tattoo artists in Las Vegas and his involvement with the tattoo/art/music/film industry is also widely known.
“I just use true techniques from tattooing. Bold will hold. Make sure that my color blends make sense with the skin tone I’m working with, and my goal is to make my clients stand out in a room from people that are already tattooed. Its very popular to get tattooed now, but its not popular to think it out and try to stand out in the way that I’m doing it.”
Travis Hickman is one of our hardest working tattoo artists at Trip Ink Tattoo Company! He comes from Colorado, where he had his own shop, to work with us in Sin City! He loves to tattoo bold color as well as high contrast black and grey, so be sure to request him if you’re looking for an awesome tattoo! Also be sure to check out some of his portfolio on our website, so that you can get an idea as to how amazing he is at being a tattoo artist! And everybody who gets tattooed by him boasts about his professionalism as well as his generosity to the clients that he tattoos, at our world known and reputation driven tattoo shop!!!!
Alex (Goon) Kelley specializes in Illustrative and Realistic tattoos as well as many other styles, and he loves making his tattoos come to life like a living sticker. The Illustrative style takes the techniques learned in Traditional tattooing (solid line work, shading and color packing) and adds a Realistic element to each so that the end result is an effect all its own, leaving you with a tattoo that pops off the body. If you’re looking to get a tattoo that lasts forever like a sticker, look no further than our artist Goon! He is ready to talk with you about making your next tattoo come to life.
Kandi Rae has been with Trip Ink since before the beginning. She started with Rick Trip in 2013. He started Trip Ink Tattoo Company 7 months into her apprenticeship and she takes pride in what the shop has become. She specializes in drawing and tattooing the most precise and beautiful script designs as well as Neo Traditional with a European flare. She has quite a few projects in the works and she’s always looking for new and exciting ideas from her customers.
Belena was apprenticed by tattoo shop owner Rick Trip back in 2017, and she’s amazing at relating tattoos to what her client is interested in or loves. Just read a part of her BLOG interview below and then check out some of her tattoos!
“I like to tattoo by learning as much as I can about my client and their ideas so I can send them home feeling proud to have supported the industry, and to keep up the normalcy of tattoos in everyday society. While I’m working, my main focus is on what the needle is doing in each moment to create that end goal. I keep both the quality of the artwork and the happiness of the client in mind because I think it’s important to decorate our bodies with the things we like, or things that remind us to love our friends, our favorite stories, or anything we choose. I tattoo with the imagination of a surrealist, the background of circus performer, and the techniques of American or European traditional tattooing.”
