SAY HEY TO THE CREW
James is originally from South Florida, and has been working in the body modification industry since 2017. His piercing career began that year, and tattooing followed in 2018.
Since then, he worked his way up the east coast of Florida where he refined and improved his craft, before deciding to move to Maine in June of 2022. His work is constantly evolving, and he loves a good challenge. He enjoys designing custom pieces for his clients and bringing their ideas to life, especially in American Traditional, Blackwork, and Soft Black & Grey styles.
When Kaley began her tattoo career in 2015, her main goal was to find a career in which she could be creative, expressive, and authentic. Over the next few years she learned from artists in 3 different shops, but never felt that she truly had an artistic home. In 2022, she and her fiancé James decided it was time to create that atmosphere they truly desired, thus, Shipwreck Tattoo emerged.
Kaley has experience in most styles of tattooing, but definitely shows a favor towards bold lines, vibrant colors, and heavy saturation. She loves doing Traditional, Blackwork, and Cartoon style pieces, and is always excited for something different and unique, so give her a shout and chat about your ideas!
