Almighty Ink was established in 2002 as a private studio for Chris Delaney to continue developing his style as a large scale custom tattoo artist after a 2 year respite. His flagship studio is situated on the east coast (US) near Asbury Park, New Jersey ..but also has a sister tattoo studio in Europe located in a small town on the east coast of Sweden in Oxelosund , and is run by good friend and tattoo artist, Ubbe Rydeslatt.
Chris began tattooing at the early age of 16 and purchased his first professional tattoo equipment in 1989 from the back of an Outlaw Biker magazine. Being an artist/illustrator all his childhood, he imediately began implementing his vision of custom tattoos designed for the individual. He is practiced in most popular tattoo styles, but prefers to work in a bold new expressive fashion, as well as exploring the more obscure low-brow art genres. His influences vary widely and he consequently enjoys an intelligent clientele that allow him to freely express his ideas.
About 10 years ago, he began to experience signs of overuse in his hands and wrists, which has unfortunately diminished his ability to produce as much work as he would like. He is currently trying many different methods of healing so that he can continue to create art and fulfil his creative vision(s).
This year, the opening of Almighty Ink Tattoo Brand store will signify the expansion of his creative visions onto clothing and other assorted stuff. Keep checking back often as we will be offering new and exciting works from Chris Delaney.
