Clay Walker — Senior Tattoo Artist
Clay Walker is a co-owner of Bigfoot Tattoos. Clay has been tattooing in Kamloops since 2009. Clay also paints canvases and murals.
Clay started with a 3 year apprenticeship at the once prominent Eye Candy Ink Tattoos by Tania Henigar — who has retired. As a self taught artist Clay began drawing and painting at a young age referencing the natural world for inspiration. Realism is a strong point in his art so he tends to use that technique in custom pieces that bring the imagination and fantasy to life with forced perspectives, use of negative space, body flow, etc.
Kevyn Harper — Senior Tattoo Artist
Bigfoot Tattoos is proud to have the talented Kevyn Harper joining the team.
Kevyn trained under Canadian legend Tom Coles. Under an old school apprenticeship he became versed in all styles of tattooing. As a student of art history, Kevyn is now most interested in dark expressionist forms of art — but is able to meet any style from 17 years of experience.
Kelly Wright — Apprentice Tattoo Artist
Bigfoot Tattoos is stoked to have Kelly Wright as part of the crew and learning the trade.
If you’ve walked around Kamloops chances are you’ve seen Kelly’s bright colourful mural work in multiple places in the downtown core and north shore.
Kelly has some prints and paintings available for sale too.
