AJ McGuire

     AJ McGuire has been tattooing for 12 years. Originally from Buffalo, New York, AJ made the move out West to experience new things and to spend more time in the great outdoors. He loves tattooing, art, fly fishing, his wife, camping, and his cat Bruce Wayne. He enjoys tattooing many different styles, but specializes in clean lines, fine details, soft black and grey, or bold colors. Check out his instagram for daily posts. @ajmcguiretattoos
