Ali's Octoship

She said, "I want a pirate ship half sleeve." I said, "Let's add an octopus." She said, "That's what I wanted to but the other artist I went to said it wasn't possible." I said, "Heck yeah, it's possible!"

Choking Umbilical Baby

Choking Umbilical Baby

A reenacted self portrait of Sabastian Luis, a tattooer from San Antonio. He was born with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. No babies were harmed or abused in the making of this tattoo. The pixilation is not a part of the tattoo; it's just a blur out of someone else's work.

Good Fortune Kitty

Good Fortune Kitty

Sometimes it's frustrating when clients bring in someone else's tattoo photo and want it. Yolanda was pretty adamant. But it's still up to the tattoo artist to bring something original to the plate. It turned out alright in the end.

Koi & Lanterns

Koi & Lanterns

Jackie wanted me to tattoo a feminine koi fish with lanterns. I thought, why not. There was only one problem... she had a previously done kanji in the middle of her arm. So I incorporated it into the design.

Life is Like...

Life is Like...

A very untypical pair of dice with roses. Symbolic of the risks and obstacles one has in life. This was his first tattoo and next time we'll add the corresponding "death" tattoo on the other arm. It's gonna be cool, you'll see.

Moth to Flaming Lotus

Moth to Flaming Lotus

When you think about a moth going to a flame it's quite tragic. They're attracted to something that will inevitably engulf them; consuming them in it's flames. However, according to Bobby, this is a symbol of destiny; it's what compels you to do something in life and be somebody.

Snail & Fuschias

Snail & Fuschias

Just a nature scene of two favorite subjects chosen by Shera while at Off the Map. It was her first tattoo done on a rough area on the side of the knee joint. It could use some background in order to complete the tattoo further, but we figured this was enough torture for now.

Swan Phoenix

Swan Phoenix

After a few sittings and traveling to and from OKC, Stacy got the finished outcome of this endeavor. She was interested in portraying a majestic phoenix-swanlike creature in which she was very fond of. The last session we added the background, which added dimension, and touched up some of the phoenix's body at Atomic Lotus.
