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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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

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

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…
