George Pahis

An admirer of all things art. A lover of all things created by human hands! Taught by Wendy, (his wife) in 1999, he has learned the ins and outs of this industry. George has nearly twenty three years of experience in tattooing. He enjoys all styles from traditional, Neo-traditional, Japanese, geometric, illustrative, color or his favorite, black and grey! If you can dream it, he can do it.

Liam Shelton

Laser Tattoo Removal Technician, Tooth Gems, and Body Piercings.

Liam, a Southeast Idaho native with a lifelong passion for tattoos and body piercing, developed his expertise while living in different parts of the U.S., notably in Texas, where he became acquainted with laser tattoo removal. After thorough research, he returned to his home area, determined to offer accessible and affordable tattoo removal services. His dedication quickly earned him a reputation as the leading provider in the region. Recognizing the need for tattoo removal beyond recreational ink, Liam initiated a nonprofit to offer low-cost or free removal for Property and Trafficking, Racist, Prison, and Gang-related tattoos. Additionally, he expanded his services to include safe and sanitary body piercing, walk-in and appointment-based services, along with offerings such as Tooth Gems and Hollywood Peels, a painless alternative to Microneedling and Chemical peels with no recovery time required.

Ryu Newland

I’m a tattoo artist from Utah. I’ve been tattooing 5 years. My favorite style to do is black and grey/soft shades. I’m at my happiest when I’m tattooing. I’m goofy and random as hell so be ready for me to say some dumb shit. Definitely a summer/outdoors person. Love wakeboarding and just being on the water. Also still a movie fan. My favorite game is League Of Legends. My Instagram @InkedByRyu you can msg me there for appointment inquiries or through the Black Pelican Facebook page. I’m new here so come stop by say hi.


Hi, I’m Gibby! (Yes, that’s my real name)
I’ve been apprenticing at Black Pelican since September. Art has always been my happy place and I’m lucky enough to do it full time! I especially enjoy colorful, surreal or psychedelic designs, but also find joy in black + grey. I love helping people express their individuality, and to feel more at home in their bodies.
