Ever Onward and Upward

I spent three hours on the second session of the sea turtle, first working on the shell, moving to the head, and then to the front flippers. I mainly used a small magnum needle and a round shader needle. I used a lot of colors. I got in a couple more hours with the full…

Pixar, Poppys, and Damn Apple

I got Rex and Bullseye worked in to the Disney sleeve. Next session I’ll start Buzz Lightyear, then we’ll move downward with some Pirates of the Caribbean stuff and Nightmare Before Christmas. My neighbor came in for her 4th session and got some poppys added to her floral piece. Next time will be some daisies…

Eating Income and My Mug

My client with the video game character piece always pays with a check. When I was ready to deposit it, I couldn’t find it. I tore my house apart looking. I went through my garbage. Eventually I located a few fragments that I was able to identify as the check.  I concluded that the puppy…

Invites and Large Pieces

Yesterday I came so close to finishing the lion family piece. But alas I think I need another hour with it. I added more mane up top because the client said the lion looked like he had a mullet…and he was right. Looks better now. Last week I made more progress on the horror movie…

Bronson and Pain

This was a fun hand tattoo I got to do last week. I am curious to see how it will look after it is healed since hand tattoos are known for fading a lot during the healing process. I spent an entire session on the lion family tattoo just adding mane from the daddy lion…

Fighting Fires

A buddy of mine showed me an online tattoo photo of a firefighter helmet that he really liked. We discussed some ideas to make it more unique for his tattoo. I grabbed my nice camera and some flashes and went to a nearby fire substation where his firefighter gear was. He got all his gear…

Lights and Tattoos

Anyone who knows anything about Jeeps knows the stock headlights are garbage. Once a month I take my friend to Reno for doctor visits and we always leave before the sun is up. And every time I’m white-knuckle driving and cursing my crappy headlights. So I finally got some new LED ones. Her dad used…

Chucky and Stuff

I was a little nervous going into the Chucky tattoo on our ongoing horror movie leg sleeve – mainly because Chucky was only about 3-inches tall. But he actually came out really good. I still have to add some white highlights and color his eyes blue. I finished up the panda bear eating a baseball…

Sleeves in Progress

We added a heart to the chemistry/biology sleeve this morning. This particular tattoo took 3 hours. We have a couple more items to add then I’ll start adding the background fill. I started adding another cub to the lion family half sleeve on my Fernley client. Rather than finishing up the mining structure on the…

Ills and a Pup

Loss of income this week due to a yucky cold. I had to cancel a few sessions. Adding to my woes is a puppy who disrupts my sleep at night every 2 hours. Despite these temporary annoyances, I have still managed to work on some tattoo designs and keep the business rolling. Here’s a hand…
