Tony Olivas

I’m originally from Tucson Arizona. I have been tattooing 37 years as of November . I started tattooing when I was 15. My brother Henry got me started. In 1989 I worked in Panama City Beach for Adam West at Dixieland Tattoo. Then I went to work for Jerry Riegger at Ancient Art. Jerry is the one that taught me how to make needles and build Tattoo machines. He is one of the best machine builders in the tattoo industry, and I owe him SO much for my career because he believed in me.

I’m the owner of Sacred Heart Tattoo Inc. in Atlanta Georgia. I founded Sacred Heart Tattoo in since 1994 . The flagship shop is in Little Five Points [Atlanta Georgia], and my partnered shop is in Norcross Georgia. I’m very blessed with my crew (familia) at both my shop. You can check them out by going to
