JOEY ARMSTRONG

Joey Armstrong started his tattoo career in San Francisco in 2003 at Goldfield’s. Working under Henry Goldfield, Dave Bobrick, Rob Merrill and Luke Stewart, Joey gained his beginning in his new career from some of the best.

After working at Goldfield’s for three and a half years, Joey moved on to Seventh Son Tattoo in 2007. He worked under Jason Kundell, Erik Rieth and Luke Stewart. He still travels on a regular basis down to San Fransisco in order to tattoo out of Seventh Son Tattoo when he’s not working from Thunderhand Tattoo.

Joey is a well rounded artist and enjoys many forms, but he specialized in Japanese style tattooing.

Painting is another artist outlet that Joey enjoys. He paints in many mediums which include: water color, oil, acrylic, air brush and aerosol.

Joey is a recent transplant to the Tri-Cities. After spending many years in San Francisco, Joey and his wife moved to Richland, WA to be with family and give their kids a better place to grow up.

When Joey is not tattooing, he trains regularly in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
