Fredd is the Co-Owner and resident artist at the 1001 Troubles Tattoo Studio. Fredd started his career in the little town of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. He eventually opened up his own shop a few years into his career with the help of his business partner Michelle Carter. Together they moved their shop to the wonderful little town of Warren and grew their 2 room private shop into a full-fledged tattoo studio complete with staff.
Fredd is an accomplished and skilled tattoo artist with 9 years of experience. Fredd obtained his bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Illustration from the University of Massachusetts. He prefers to create large full color pieces, usually in an illustrative style. He loves decorative botanical pieces, animals, marine life, lady-portraits, anything mythological, fantasy and sci-fi subjects. His style boarders on illustrative and neo-traditional work.
You can usually find him wearing flannel and goofing off and tattooing all his favorite people Tues-Sat, year round.

Dani Ryan came to us in 2016 and earned an apprenticeship under Fredd’s instruction. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, she excelled early in her career to become one of the best illustrative Black and Grey Tattoo Artists on the east coast. She has a delicate yet striking style consisting of tight linework, deep blacks, and peppery-soft gradients. While Dani enjoys a variety of subjects, she loves portrait work in black and grey and focuses her personal art on drawing faces.

May is our desk manager. She makes the calls, she greets the clients, pays the bills; May ensures we don’t run our business into the ground from impulsively buying that stupid useless shit every tattoo artist thinks they need. She is the gatekeeper and den-mother of this scab-temple. She’s basically the only adult in the room and boy are we lucky to have her! She’s our compass and her service to all our clients and friends is worth it’s weight in gold.
May started working for us in 2016 and she has quickly become our most valuable asset to our group. Quick witted and keen, she has helped propel our shop to become one of the best and most successful tattoo studios in Rhode Island.
Be sure to say hi to her when you swing by!
