Crosses and Flowers

Crosses and Flowers

The time change almost screwed me up on the additions to the Jesus tattoo.  I thought I had been working on his arm for three and a half hours, so when it was time to pay I almost charged him too much.  Luckily I realized I hadn’t set the clocks back in the shop yet….

Lines and Bad Reviews

Lines and Bad Reviews

Tattoos with hard lines have never been my specialty.  I tend to avoid them when I can.  Today’s session was a tattoo that was only lines – no color, no shading, just lines.  Well I got through it.  And so did she.  I think it was her first tattoo.  She heads off to Texas for…

Cosmic Stuff

Cosmic Stuff

Well I’ve fallen behind a bit as usual and today I remembered that I needed to update the blog. I got to show off my iPad Pro to a good friend today by sketching up this quick little design. Spontaneous art can be fun to do. I continued work on a sleeve a few days…

Back to Work

Back to Work

I got a new design drawn up for the video game villains piece that I think I am starting this week.  I had a server migration on both my website hosting accounts and I think it screwed up my email.  I had sent my client some wardrobe ideas a while back and a few weeks…

Some Time Off

Some Time Off

I was supposed to go to Jarbidge yesterday but the guy I was going with forgot the days we agreed on and he ended up going there 3 days early. I wasn’t going to have a motel room and I would have had to drive an hour longer because he said I had to go…

Advertising and Tough Tattoos

Advertising and Tough Tattoos

I figure TattApp won’t sell if no one knows about it.  I have some YouTube videos on my channel that have gotten tens of thousands of views, so I thought making a demo video with TattApp would be enough to get the word out. However after a few days the views on that video have…

Backpiece and Freehand

Backpiece and Freehand

Yesterday I got in a couple more hours on this full backpiece of a lady wearing a headdress behind a wolf. The woman had healed up well from the last session and I spent the entire time getting the wolf into place. I always put the stencil on with the body in a neutral position…

Skull Octopus and Copyrights

Skull Octopus and Copyrights

Today was a repeat client getting a skull-octopus on her arm.  Black and gray work is always fun.  I enjoy creating depth with shading.  We were going to run some tentacles down her back but ran out of time since I had to go pick up my son and my niece from school. Last night…

New Demo Video

New Demo Video

I spent all morning creating a new video for my YouTube channel. I wanted to demonstrate some high-depth tattoo shading techniques and also showcase my app. This is the piece of art I created on the video. I think I have a day off tomorrow so I’ll do all the editing then. I have like…

TattApp Updates

TattApp Updates

I have been staying up way too late this week. I’ve been making big updates on TattApp, trying to fix little issues that have plagued it since the beginning. I’m pretty happy with it at the moment. I started to make a new video to help promote it but I didn’t like the direction it…
