Shaman Modifications Tattoo & Body Piercing!!
WALK-INS WELCOME AT NORTH LOCATION ONLY
My name is Daniel O'Driscoll, I was born and raised in a small town in Wyoming called Evanston. When I was 18, I stumbled onto one of my favorite artists and biggest inspirations, Alex Grey, I became obsessed with this new found inspiration in Transcendental Mind Expanding artwork as a gateway to experiencing life at its fullest potential.
I Love Tattooing more than anything except my Family. I try with every tattoo to better myself and work towards perfecting this craft by creating delicate, nice healing, solid tattoos, that will look as beautiful in 10-20 years as they do the day you get them. I love doing black work, traditional work, dot work, psychedelic, uplifting designs, geometrical work, faces, words, really anything, but I really enjoy doing highly detailed stuff, I honestly just love tattooing and am up for any challenge whether big or small! I promise to leave every client with a tattoo they love and make it my number one priority!
Other than tattooing, my life consists of my family, My beautiful daughter and her beautiful mother. These 2 amazing human beings inspire me and bring so much joy to my life, every time I see my daughters face, it inspires me to work harder to be the best me that I can be. So I plan on creating solid tattoos and pushing myself to be better until the day my hands stop working. LIFE IS AWESOME! Embrace Every Moment!
Daniel works Wednesday - Monday 12-8pm
I started tattooing in 2001 just outside of Chicago. I served a short apprenticeship at a very busy, well respected street shop, where I earned my chops as a walk in artist. We were doing 30-40 tattoos a day sometimes, between 4 artists back then...It was crazy. I bounced around for a few years and eventually opened a studio in the South Chicago suburbs with a fellow artist, that lasted a couple of years for me, when I sold my half to feed my desire to explore. I still worked in Chicago until 2010, when I decided to head west to Las Vegas. I worked in Vegas and San Diego, for the next couple of years.
I returned to Chicago to find I still hated the cold. At which point I received an offer to move to Knoxville,TN to work for a friend I had made at a previous studio. I worked in Knoxville for the next four years, this is also where I met my amazing wife and business partner Lauren.
Since We left Knoxville, we have been traveling the country with our three dogs in our '88 camper doing guest spots, and just enjoying life. Which brings us to today, We have discovered that Austin is a place we both love and have decided to make it our home, where I am excited to be a part of the Shaman Modifications Family.
I enjoy all styles of tattooing, though I'm heavily focused on surreal/dark black and grey at the moment. My work also focuses heavily on intricate, detailed linework. I just want to do good tattoos, and make sure my clients have a good time in the process. If you read that whole thing...then, Thanks!
