We are SO excited to have Eric Hesseltine working with us again! Eric joined the BHTC crew in early 2019 but is no stranger as he formerly worked at Painted Soul Tattoos with Ricky. Eric has been tattooing since 2007, apprenticing at a shop in Hartford, CT after graduating high school. He wasn't sure where life was going to take him at the ripe age of 18 but decided accepting an opportunity to apprentice as a tattoo artist was better than doing manual labor. Thank goodness Eric decided to avoid that physical activity, as he is now one of the top traditional tattoo artists in the state. Eric specializes in American traditional, American Japanese, and single needle tattoos.
When Eric isn't busy working hard creating a-m-a-z-i-n-g tattoos, he's busy being a father to his adorable son, Raiden. Eric also enjoys fishing, woodworking, and going on tour with his band PUS!
