Tats and Rescues

I started work on this really cool art piece by the artist Olivia. My client was leaving after her session and realized she had locked her keys in her vehicle. I drove her to get her spare set, and upon returning she learned that her spare set did not have the microchip in the key….

New Year

It’s 2020. The holidays were relaxing and I got some time off. Now I’m just trying to get back into a new groove. TattApp is doing pretty good. I still have a lot of tattoo clients lined up. Obviously I haven’t posted in awhile so here are pictures from my sessions over the past few…

More Details

I have a new client who is getting a full arm sleeve. A few weeks ago we started with a deer on his shoulder. Last week I added Bill the Butcher to his forearm (my client is a butcher). Then today I started a horse under his deer. And I also recently did a drawing…

Color Tattoos

I finished Captain Spaulding from the movie “House of 1000 Corpses” and am really happy with how it turned out. I think I put in 7 hours across two sessions.

Sleeve Progress

Lots of sleeve work this last month. I got this colorful turtle finished on the underwater leg sleeve that’s been in progress for a while. I think we’re adding jellyfish next. I finished the coverup of the demon that was supposed to be a gargoyle. I believe it now looks like a gargoyle. I also…

Another Week

I met a new client today and started work on his very first tattoo, which will be a half outer sleeve. He is friends with two other clients of mine who both got lion tattoos. I was pretty happy with how this one Is turning out. A lady who I went to school with came…

Feeling Better

I used Hector to help me create a new tattoo design for a client who I met when she was 6 years old. I was painting a huge Disney mural in her parent’s house. It was my first art job after college and I think I made about $4 per hour. Anyway this mermaid’s face…

Couples and Japanese

The horror movie leg sleeve is finally done. I need to go back through all of it and do some more touch ups, but overall it’s pretty good. My tattoo skills have improved much since we first started it 7 years ago. I can still see areas where I need improving, but just looking at…

Drawing Health

For me, art has always been therapeutic. Feeling alone and unimportant sometimes permeates my life. Wishing someone would care or help doesn’t make life better, so if I’m paying attention to my downward spirals, I usually start drawing…a lot. It’s not an instantaneous cure, but it usually gets me through the days. I like to…
