1st arm sleeve

1st arm sleeve

this is my best client. he got a full sleeve within 2 years time. he decided he wanted to get his wife tattooed on him without it being necessarily recognizeable. we took a picture he had of her and turned it into a murmaid. he also got a custom sea dragon to represent himself and to follow the whole pirate theme he has going. as we pieced it together it came together more and more.. this guy is not only my best client but one of my best friends. props to you chad!!!!

a daughters' memorial of her dad

a daughters' memorial of her dad

this client drove two hours to have me do this awesome portrait of her dad who has passed for a few years now. she says this is the only clean shaven pic of him. we also incorporated his one green and one blue eye. it made for an interesting tattoo. my client and i love it.

a father's memorial

a father's memorial

this piece is definately a change of the norm for me. haven't done a bold color piece in a while. i was excited to do this piece for this client because she wanted a memorial tattoo for her father without lettering which seems common in our shop. she let me run with the background some and allowed my color and shading suggestions. i even got to have some fun with white throughout all of the wings.

another rose!!

another rose!!

this time it's personal!! my good friend and co-worker mike decided he waned to get this rose on his neck for his birthday this year. it made my day. his approach was to have it done realistically. we went as big as we could without making it look awkward. i love the placement and the way the outer leaves spread throughout his neck, especially up top where a leaf hides behind his ear.

classical sacred heart

classical sacred heart

this client chose a sacred heart design from one of those old school jesus christ candles you can get at the supermarket. i really wanted to approach the tattoo with that old school painterly feel. but at the same time, i wanted to create some contrast because the client had a fairly dark tone to her skin.

collaboration of interests

this client wanted to find an interesting way to incorporate his beliefs in the asian culture and scuba diving. two of his most cared for interests. so, he came to me with a rough drawing that basically looked like his tattoo. i like the composition alot with the way the shark sord of swims around the ying yang. i also find it interesting the way the ying yang and kanji are soemwhat tilted. it creates alot of interest to the eye.

good and evil skulls

this client came to me with the idea of the theater masks. laugh now, cry later!! but he didn't want to go with the same old design. he decided he wanted to use skulls. so i suggested doing an evil one and a god like one. i think the designs came out very original. he was definately satisfied.

graphic portrait calf sleeve

graphic portrait calf sleeve

same guy who likes reneissance style tattoos. except this one he drew a graphic self portrait which is where the sleeve started. along with his own portrait, he brought me some pictures of some of his favorite authors and it just grew from there. the key with these tattoos where to keep them graphic and bold. i really liked his idea of keeping them in panels but we tried keeping the backgrounds sort of connected.

green man

green man

this piece i just resently did. it is a concrete version of the green man wall mask. this client and i have been friends a long time and this piece is an on going project based off of an abstract design we started a few years back. we wanted the green man to connect with the tribal abstract piece so we crossed over the background design so it ran under the green man piece. work still in progress.

one last time...

this has been an ongoing piece for me. i have put in about 30 to 40 hours on it. after i posted it last, i wasn't completely happy with it so i decided to rework it. i added more black shading in the drapery of the dress for more contrast and i used white all over the figure for high lights. i put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this piece. i just hope its worth being featured now.

razorwire and smoke

razorwire and smoke

this client came in with the typical idea of razor wire as a band. we decided to incorporate smoke in the piece to create depth and overlapping of the razor wire. we ended up coming up with the concept of the wire being constraining but the smoke being the opposite hence the yin and yang theory.
