Steve Bayman apprenticed at A Different Drummer in Wichita Falls Texas. Owned by Steve Blakely and guided by Rodney Schneider he was trained for 2.5 years starting in mid 2006. Steve Bayman finished his apprenticeship in 2009 and acquired his tattoo license after passing the Wichita Falls Tattoo exam. His first Job in the tattoo industry landed him at Classic Tattoo Company which was also owned by Steve Blakely. Steve remains grateful to all the artists that helped him initially learn tattooing. These artist include Steve Blakely (RIP), Rodney Schneider (owner of Shine on Tattoo in Lawton , Oklahoma), Robert Ulman (owner of Home Port Tattoo in Corpus Christi, Texas) , Rob Harris (RIP) and John Saucedo.
Steve is also grateful for the time he spent with the crew over at Butchs Tattoo in Blue Springs, Missouri. Having worked with Butch and his crew for 7 years it’s bitter sweet to open his own shop. He will always be part of the BTC at heart.
Steve's tattooing is influenced by Neo-Traditional style of tattooing that has bold line work and bold color. He was trained in a high volume fast paced walk in environment and is used to tattooing walk in style tattoos as well.
