Ben Verhoek

Ben, co-owner of Pastime tattoo and San Leandro native, has been tattooing since 2008. He specializes in doing modern takes of traditional tattoo imagery, often using a specific muted color pallet.

Over the years of his career, Ben has won some awards for his tattoos, has tattooed a handful of MLB/NFL players and coaches, and has recently released his first book of flash he hand painted.

When Ben is not tattooing, he is always painting new flash, as painting has become one of his most passionate hobbies. He also enjoys playing competitive Wiffle Ball, going to A's games, and attending local hardcore shows.

There's nothing Ben cherishes more than spending quality time with his family.
