Covers and Designs

I started another classic horror movie piece beginning with Hannibal Lecter from the movie Silence of the Lambs. She already had the moth from the poster tattooed on her forearm so we put Hannibal right next to it. I’m also going to add Jason Voorhees, Mike Myers, and Ghostface Killer. This one took about two…

TattApp and Eternal

TattApp and Eternal

I finished with a client this morning and saw a call coming in from Detroit, Michigan. Now normally I don’t answer my cell phone, but I know what resides in Detroit: Eternal Tattoo Supply, the makers of my favorite tattoo inks. So I answered my phone. For the past few days I’ve been working on…

Finishing and Covers

Finishing and Covers

Got so busy I didn’t post a blog last week. I finished up a lot of in-progress tattoos lately. Now technically this floral piece isn’t finished – I still want to add some more leaves around it to frame it better, but we’ll get those in a touch up session before she moves to South…

Feathers and Scams

Feathers and Scams

A client wanted an eagle and a clock added to a flag tattoo he already had on his leg. He and his wife have a dog who is the sister of my dog. I spent just over two hours on this black and gray piece. His wife is also a client, and she originally didn’t…

Ships and Scars

Ships and Scars

The sailing ship and Kraken piece is shaping up nicely. My client has me listening to an audiobook while I work on him that is set in the Star Wars universe 1000 years before the movies. The lore is pretty interesting, and I realize I don’t know too much about Star Wars for someone who…

Athena

Athena

I had a request to draw the Greek goddess Athena based on a tattoo design the potential client had found. I spent some time trying to change the design enough so it wasn’t a copy, changing the helmet, face, and altering the outer design motif. Taking on a tattoo design based on an extraordinary tattoo…

Fire Fighting

Fire Fighting

I finished up the firefighter tattoo with a late night 3-hour session and filmed it all. I spent the next two days editing the new footage with the old footage and cutting 7-hours down to 45 minutes.  I uploaded the video to my YouTube channel last night before bed. This morning I finished up a…

Dragons and Krakens

Dragons and Krakens

Our second session of the dragon heart design ended after I finished the coloring on the red dragon, which she said hurt way more than the lining. We now know it should take about two hours and fifteen minutes to complete the other dragon. My Disney Cruise client got another session in, but we were…

Videos and Tattoos

Videos and Tattoos

I set up three cameras and shot video of me working on the firefighter tattoo. All the cards in the cameras filled up after 3 hours so I decided to stop the session and finish it in a couple weeks. I really want to capture the entire session on video. I spent a couple days…

TattApp Back

TattApp Back

Apple approved my appeal so TattApp is back on the App Store and updated. I had made a new  promo video for it and threw a shout-out to Kent Bartley at Evolution Tattoo in Troutdale, Oregon because I used one of his tattoos in the video. He actually liked my video and shared it on…
