Artist – Troll 2017-10-14T21:05:06+00:00

About Troll

I started Tattooing around 1993, back home in River Oaks, Texas. Been a long and winding road to where I am today, but worth the costs. Spearheading about six years at Bonehead Tattoo, then breaking ground on my first shop, Munkeewrench Tattoos in 2000. Six years later I opened The Salty Dog Tattoo Shoppe.

Tattooing is and has always been a consuming force, Tattoo is a Way of Life not a Job.  The Traditions and Standards of the industry demand a higher level of commitment to achieve a higher standard of success. Social responsibility to the Clients is underrated by many younger artists today. I remember when it was all sex, drugs and rock and roll, with experience comes the severance for tattoo.

They say harsh seas make strong sailors, and with that so does decades of tattooing. The Salty Dog name reflects that. Ive worked in many styles and genres of art and tattooing. This leaves me versatile in Color as well as Black n’ Grey.  Japanese, Realism, Portraits, Traditional or Neo Traditional, I can provide you.

to quote the great Norman Collins, ” My work speaks for itself.”


Some sample shots from the life of a sketchbook . Drawing is the lifeblood of art.

An artist that doesn’t feel more alive  when creating is no artist.  Never stop creating!


Attention: As of today, Troll is Fully Booked through the end of the year. He will open his schedule again December 15th 2017. If you’re a fan or friend come by and hangout, listen to music and tell jokes,  we encourage you to come by the shop and check out his work in person in the mean time. 

Want to Book now with one of our artists? Easy Breezy. Just send us a message and get in touch with us. Just a few details about who you are, what you’re thinking about doing and how to get ahold of you. We’ll respond to you as fast as we can. Don’t forget to mention which artist you’re looking to book time with.

To ensure your appointment time and price, it will be necessary to make a Deposit. This amount will be credited to the final price of your tattoo. How much of a Deposit may you ask? That’s going to depend on two things. First, how long your tattoo will take will affect the final price. Second, how far out your tattoo appointment is will require a higher deposit amount. Lots can change between now and then, and if it does you can get your deposit back. Provided you give us 24 hours notice, otherwise, it will be forfeited.

Usually small to medium tattoos will require 25-100$ deposits if they’re less than 30 days away. Larger tattoos will require larger deposits to secure. For appointments booked further than 30 days out the deposit will be doubled. And of course, if you’re truly committed to the cause you can pay larger amounts to pay towards your final costs.

Why do you need to pay a deposit? Well, it’s necessary to ensure clients respect the time, we, as artists put into the quality, planning, and commitment to your tattoo and our art. We are craftsmen and want to provide you with the product we both deserve.  When a client doesn’t show up, we lose both money and valuable time away from our families spent working towards Your satisfaction. Please don’t leave us waiting around on people with commitment issues. BE A GOOD CLIENT AND SHOW UP FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.

Thank you for understanding. It’s not just Your time, it’s Our time too.
