Tats be Dumb

A couple days ago I started a dripping skull clock with chess pieces tattoo.  I didn’t design this one. The client had found a picture of it and liked it a lot considering his firefighter profession and dealings with life and death on the job. We got 3 hours in and hopefully can finish in…

Bands and Stuff

Tonight I worked on designing a coverup of a name. I was excited to finally order a new tv to replace my aging 12-year-old rear projection beast last week. It arrived yesterday and was so super awesome until I turned it on and saw the black splotch with cascading lines spread across the screen. I…

Forgetting Pics

The week has been very busy and I failed to take pictures of a couple tattoos. Two days ago I did the ‘skeleton hunter and dog in a boat’ tattoo. It took over 4 hours. I’ll be sure to get a pic when he comes back for a touch-up. And I forgot to get pics…

5-hour Tattoo Today

My son has braces and his mouth was very beat up yesterday so we headed to Reno this morning at 7am to see the orthodontist (60 miles away). We were supposed to leave at 5:45am but I must’ve turned the alarm off in my sleep. My tattoo appt was at 10am but I pushed it…

Jesus tattoo

Today I tattooed the Jesus forearm design. It went pretty smooth, 3 hours from start to finish. This evening I worked on an update for TattApp. There have been a couple things bugging me, mainly the cursor not lining up properly with the Apple Pencil tip. I still was not able to fix that. It’s…

TattApp and some Tats

I had a tattoo artist from Germany contact me a few days ago wondering how to find my new app after seeing my YouTube video. The app hadn’t been approved yet, but by the end of the day it was in the App Store. Pretty cool, I was excited. Yeserday I worked on the ongoing…

Recap of days gone by

I’ve spent so much time over the last week pulling my hair out over writing code and developing the new TattApp that I’ve neglected my other duties – including updating my blog. I finished up a black and gray skeleton on Kim who happens to be my most frequent client. She’s been coming to see…

TattApp

I have finished development on the first build of my new App. It is available in the iTunes app store! Check out TattApp in the app store! **IMPORTANT** It can ONLY be used on an iPad Pro with a pressure-sensitive stylus such as the Apple Pencil. It is a drawing app for tattoo artists that…

Mythology and Fantasy

Yesterday I worked on the tattoo app for quite a while. I made it so you can layout all your colors first, then you can “dip” your needles in them to select what color you’re going to work with. If you “dip” into another color, it will blend the two colors. I also added a…

Squirt and the App

Today’s tattoo took almost 3 hours.  For the size it doesn’t seem like it should take that long, but with my new style and trying to capture a decent amount of detail, there’s no way to avoid it. You can’t rush the needles. I was doing great for the first two hours, but then I…
