I posted this collaboration awhile back in video form. Several people that use the fb app said they didn't see it so I'm reposting as still photos. He brought reference from the web and we altered it to suit his form. As usual , when I drew it on, I tidied up the design theory/weaker tattoo mechanics often present in references that clients bring. You deserve more effort than a direct copy/stick on/stencil many use to rush the process. Also, I may put multiple pics together, but you'll never see me using editing programs to soften detail or change light or color. Thanks again for following along. And feel free to share if you just like the art you may find here, or if you think seeing/understanding how collaboration with​ me has benefited others may help someone you care for. ...

Do you have a tattoo you would like to have changed? Not happy with how it's aged? You've changed, so you would like your tattoo to change with you? Just aren't sure it was ever really what you wanted/or wasn't right to begin with? I enjoy helping others. I am happy that people trust in me to improve upon tattoos they have. Recently, new friends/clients Linda and Kristina had appointments to fix work previously done elsewhere. Below are before and after pictures of the art they had and the outcome of our collaboration on each of them. Thanks for looking. As always, if you feel these pictures or any others may be helpful to others/anyone that you care for, feel free to share. ... See MoreSee Less

Dina R. LoveSince you did my only two tattoos I don't want them changed because they were done so well and are perfect. But I have plans to add a new one!3   ·  6 days ago

Logan OgleI've been out of NC for over 10 yrs now. (you did my 2nd tattoo ever on my foot-which was beyond perfect & corrected the first tattoo I ever got on my wrist to look better from the original artist who didn't care). I moved out of town almost 10 years ago, but I got the "itch" for a new one.. so I went to a well respected artist here in town. (good portfolio, had to wait awhile so it gave me a better feeling of his work& clientel). I took him a picture of a tattoo you did, (this again was years ago)&asked for exactly that bc I knew it'd be forever before I got back home. I was so disappointed. So since 2009, I've not gotten anything else (as bad as I'm dying for one!) I will plan my next trip home around being able to get an appointment when I can. It's sad when, in the capital city of FL, there's not a single artist that compares to your care of your client, cleanliness, or talent.. And its worth waiting however long I have to go get all the way back to NC. 💜 You're truly the best.3   ·  6 days ago

My friend/client Chris was in recently to get these warrior feathers. He has a pretty broad arm and all forearms are basically tapering cylinders. There is a primary central line that visually runs from the outer wrist to elbow center when the arm is bent. The second and third pics show the possibility of balance achieved when that natural line is observed. I see many 'artists' miss the advantage of this placement and it is often disappointing to see (from my perspective) when that happens. Thanks for looking and as always, feel free to share. Especially if any pic or bit of information may be helpful to anyone (friend of family) that you love/care for. ... See MoreSee Less

First tattoo (her first, she went big in memory of a lost loved one and was a trooper) on new friend/client Maddie (Madi ?) recently. Though she went big, she chose to keep it simple in tone and style knowing it makes it possible to grow with in the future (or have a timeless tattoo that won't look like a fad in 10 years). She was recommended to me by other friends/clients and I appreciate the trust she gave in allowing me to help her. It was good to work with her. As always feel free to share this or any other post with others if you think it may be helpful. Thanks again for your support and for looking. ... See MoreSee Less

Friend/client Jim was in recently to get this portrait of his Father's (now his) shovelhead finished. To give you an idea of size, this is on his lower forearm/wrist. He brought pictures, and requested the space/area for the tattoo to be placed on. Though necessary for placement, I enjoy how it falls on the curve, and tapers away from the viewer. As always if you feel this or any other post may help someone you care for, feel free to share. Thanks for looking. ... See MoreSee Less

My friend/client and talented singer/songwriter Emily was in recently getting a birthmark turned into a map that matches a ship in a bottle (posted elsewhere on the page/have a look around if you like) we did on here a while back. Feel free to share this or any other post if you think it may be helpful to others. Thanks for looking. P.s. my fav part is the sea serpent.... ... See MoreSee Less

Finished this traditional style tattoo on a nephew/friend/client recently. This is my nephew Logan, his band is Long Shot. They are some of that pop punk stuff some of the kids today like... Check them out if you like. Link in first comment. The eye he wanted in this makes me think he might be a little Illuminati connected. I'm being supportive and trying to keep him out of bad company. If you feel others may benefit from seeing a clean lines, solid color, proper shading, feel free to share as you like. As always, thanks for looking. ... See MoreSee Less

And appreciate your shares even more, as I believe that helps me in my goal to help/serve all the right clients and friends in the future. Individual pics are in the comments below for ease of viewing specific detail (circles, perspective, line value, etc) ... See MoreSee Less
