Tattoos in Progress

Tattoos in Progress

We got our new puppy today. His name is Lenny. He is asleep on the floor at the moment next to the couch as I sit writing this. Christmas is over thankfully – it was great, but the lead up felt a bit hectic. I did this rose tattoo the day before Christmas. I thought…

Flowers, Ships, and Lions

Flowers, Ships, and Lions

I added mama lion to my Fernley client’s chest and arm piece. I didn’t get finished but made a lot of progress in only two hours. He wore a shirt throughout his session so I didn’t get a picture of the healed up papa lion on his chest, but hopefully next week when we start…

So much to tell

So much to tell

I got this design drawn up tonight for an upcoming tattoo next week. Client is a first-timer and she seems pretty excited. I realized earlier today that I hadn’t written anything in awhile – lots going on lately. I started building a fence in the backyard for Lenny when he arrives in a few weeks….

Medusa And a Puppy?

Medusa And a Puppy?

My frequent client couple from Elko made the trek to Fallon again in a hideous snow storm with icy roads so the wife could get her new Medusa tattoo. We had to take a break at the 4-hour mark so I could go get my kid from school, and when I got back to the…

Concepts and Tats

Concepts and Tats

The weather has been changing here in the Nevada desert, and my body has been feeling it. I had a few days of artistic inspiration and worked on a conceptual design, mostly from the comfort of my bed. It evolved a bit from start to finish, and that can sometimes be frustrating when the finished…

Pandas, Art, and Video Games

Pandas, Art, and Video Games

I had a day off on Thanksgiving.  We ate at my sister’s house and then I fell asleep on her couch.  A couple days before Thanksgiving I started work on the big Panda Bear eating baseball bats. It went smooth, no problems – close to three hours.  I think I have about an hour and…

Putting in the Time

Putting in the Time

We’re getting close to the end of a full sleeve. I was able to fill a good portion of my client’s forearm with this menacing woman. I didn’t get completely finished with her. After 3 and a half hours we were both getting hungry. I was happy with the progress. I reversed the design last…

Rawwrrr!

Rawwrrr!

Look at that big ole cat! I got in session number two and was able to get the rest of him finished in just under 3 hours. My poor client was hurting for certain! I think I primarily used a 17 curved bug pin magnum and my four shades of Empire whitewash inks. In our…

Beggars and Collectors

Beggars and Collectors

One of our local beggars paid my son and I a visit while we were parked at Sonic. A friend of mine calls him Paco, says he’s well-known in that area of town. Gary Oldman played four versions of the famous vampire in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  I started work on the third one. That upper…

Mining and a Turnaround

Mining and a Turnaround

I have been avoiding checking reviews on my app since I first developed it 7 months ago out of pure fear.  A few days ago I looked for the first time and posted on the blog about how dismal they were.  There were only three reviews, and two of them were 1-star. I actually wasn’t…
