Another new friend/client, Daniel was in recently to get the name of his Brazilian jiu jitsu studio on his calf. This is commitment to an idea/his business. He was recommended to me by several mutual friends/clients. They all mostly know each other through physical fitness endeavors. The trust given to me by all of those I collaborate with is always appreciated. So it is nice when that care I extend to all clients is acknowledged by those that make so much effort to care for their health. Again, feel free to share this post if you feel it may be helpful. Thanks again for looking. ... See MoreSee Less

I finished this tattoo on new friend/client Ethan a little while back. This was his first tattoo,that he had been considering for quite some time. He was easy to collaborate with as he brought me some really developed ideas. So drawing it on his arm to suit the defined flow/space was nice. Thanks for looking. If this or any other tattoo may be helpful, as always, feel free to share. Every exchange/opportunity to create should be about helping others. ... See MoreSee Less

First pic taken from above/higher perspective, second pic taken straight on; both so you can see how how it suits form/ how curves affect how it's viewed. This is traditionally influenced, but is beyond tattoo traditionalism. We worked on this a little more, recently. We still aren't finished but it is pretty close. This is a re-make of a 17 yr old butterfly tattoo. She wanted a whimsical/nouveau influenced hot air balloon incorporating the older tattoo. Thanks for looking. And as always, if you feel this may be helpful to a loved one or good acquaintance, feel free to share. ... See MoreSee Less

Nephew/client Logan was in recently getting this traditionally inspired tattoo. It is on the upper inside of his forearm, near his elbow. It's near his traditional dagger/flower/eye tattoo posted elsewhere on this page. I use the term "traditionally inspired" as I custom draw each tattoo to suit the form it is on (taking tattoo flash as inspiration) rather using a direct stencil. I also stack lines to preferred line weight using a finer needle, rather than using a 5 or 7 needle liner that may be more likely to blob with the fading of skin elasticity that comes with age. As always feel free to share this or any other post. Especially if you are doing so with a motivation to help others. Thanks for looking. ... See MoreSee Less

Both of these ladies recently got tattoos in memory of their fathers that passed. One of them a client/friend in her 30s that I have known for about 15 years. The other a recent client/friend in her late teens. Talking with both, I am certain that neither father/tattoo/experience was less important than the other. I appreciate the trust both of them gave me in helping them process their loss and commemorating their love for their father's. That said, I understand that I am not the choice for everyone, but if you are going to memorialize someone you love (or even get a tattoo just because you want to be tattooed for no reason as specific as love or loss), I suggest finding someone that knows how important/permanent‚Äč a tattoo of any type or size is. Thanks for looking. Share as you like. Especially if you think this or any other post may help keep someone you love emotionally or physically safe. ... See MoreSee Less
