Evan Olin - View Tattoo Gallery

My name is Evan Olin. I enjoy taking my classical art background and applying it to my tattoos. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. My tattoos often take on a painterly/ realistic style. Some of my favorite subjects include:  anything dark or horror related, wildlife/ animals, portraits, and anything else I can render in a realistic or illustrational way. My goal is to deliver one- of-a-kind tattoos that my customers can be proud to wear and show off for the rest of their lives.

Mike Ledoux - View Tattoo Gallery

I have been tattooing in several Rhode Island tattoo studios since 2003. I attended Rhode Island College, and hold a Master's Degree in Art Education. Shaping impressionable young minds since 1997, I also taught art at West Warwick High School until 2015. While I have experience tattooing in a wide variety of techniques, I feel my strength lies in my illustrative style, which fuses realism with inventive physics and questionable secondary lighting. Think Dr. Seuss meets John Audobon. Or Salvadore Dali sitting on Norman Rockwell’s lap.

Jay Blackburn - View Tattoo Gallery

Although I’ve been creating visual designs since my days with Crayola crayons and macaroni art, it took me a while to find out that skin was the canvas that allowed me to best display my distinctive and original perspective pieces. Throughout my schooling I cultivated my abilities in the creative arts, it wasn't until a few years back that I realized that my true passion lies in the art of tattooing and wasn't until 2011 when I could make it my profession.  While I enjoy most styles of tattoo, from lettering and black work to bright and vibrant color pieces, my professional focus is on illustrative and animated perspective point-of-view imagery. I love to take an object and twist it, creating an unusual and dynamic perspective with the illusion of space and depth. By concentrating on line weight, light sources, and focal points, I can use perspective technique to create a completely original work of art. (And given some paste and construction paper, I can still make one bad-ass macaroni snowman.)

I've been tattooing locally in Rhode Island for nearly 10 years. I consider myself lucky enough to have been working with and learning from some of the top artists in the state. 

I feel a tattoo should be clean, readable, and made to last. Because of that, I hope to give my clients a unique custom piece and a good tattoo experience. 

Stylistically my work has an illustrative lean with elements from japanese tattooing,but I enjoy all styles from black and gray, bio mechanical, new school,etc.

You can find me at the studio every day except mondays and



Larry DiGiusto - View Tattoo Gallery

  Hello! My name is Larry DiGiusto . I've been tattooing for over 15 years and enjoy working in a variety of styles. I studied illustration at The Massachusetts College of Art before begining my tattoo apprenticeship in 1998.  I'm  a huge Sci-Fi/Fantasy nerd and have participated in way too many live-roleplaying events. I welcome the challenge of every project that comes my way and try to push each piece beyond its creative limits and your expectations.

   Over the years I've come to love the the diversity of styles and subject matter that tattooing has to offer. Whether its the drama of black and gray realism and portraitwork or the complexity of designing large color sleeves; I respect it all. Please take a look through my portfolio and I look forward to working with you in the future! May the force be with you. Always.

Mike Romasco - View Tattoo Gallery

My name is Mike Romasco and I am a life long resident of Massachusetts. Since a very young age I developed a great interest in art and could usually be found with a pencil in hand. I mainly focused on graphite drawings. As time went on, my attention began to lean towards portraiture. Currently I have been tattooing since 2009. My main strength is black and grey realism and portraiture. I also enjoy working in an illustrative neo traditional style. Whatever the piece is, my main goal is to create something unique that flows with the body.

I’m co-owner of PowerLine Tattoo with my husband, Evan. I am the business yin to his creative yang.

I’ve been with Evan for several years, and share his passion for the art and am extremely knowledgeable about tattooing, though my artistic abilities lie in the kitchen. Working together at the shop allows Evan to focus on his art and the creative aspect of the shop, while I handle the “businessy” duties.  Although I'm not at the shop everyday anymore due to mommy duty, I'm still completely dedicated to the shop and our clients.  I miss seeing you all on a regular basis!
