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…

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…

Squirt and the App

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…

Shirts, Lines, and an App

Shirts, Lines, and an App

Today’s tattoo was tough. It was all straight lines. And to add to my troubles, the liner needles were struggling to drop ink. The goal was to get the initial pass in so no stencil would be needed for next session. Therefore I did not spend time cleaning up lines as I went because I…

Shop Declutter

I forgot to take pictures of today’s tattoo session. I need to start remembering to do that. I’m using my new release forms now so getting started with a client is taking awhile. At the end of the session I am logging the lot numbers of all the needles and inks that I used on…

Shirts and Jesus

After dropping my son off at school, I took water samples from my shop sink and then drove to Reno to give them to the lab for analysis. This should be the last item to complete for my health permit. I drove back to Fallon and worked on a Jesus design for a client who…

Floor and the Cranium

I hate when I fall behind on my blog. I finished up the day of the dead full sleeve a couple days ago. Yesterday I finished the Alaska half sleeve (wow her inside arm swelled up a ton!).  I didn’t take a picture, but I’ll post an older pic from a few months ago. After…

Inspections and Dracula

Inspections and Dracula

I was working on round two of a big dragon side piece today and I had to stop after 2.5 hours to get ready for the health inspector. My client was doing really well but I think she was happy to be done for the day. We’ll finish it up in a few weeks. I…

Tattoo Brushes for Procreate

Tattoo Brushes for Procreate

I’ve been using my iPad and Apple Pencil for over a year to draw and design artwork. I, like a gazillion other artists, am using the Procreate app. One really cool feature of Procreate is that you can make custom brushes to draw and paint with. Today after my morning tattoo session, I decided to…

Website Remodel

Website Remodel

I decided to update the Underground Tattoo website. I think I built the previous website in 2013, and since then I’ve updated it only a handful of times.  I forget it is there. Most of my posts regarding Underground Tattoo have been on the shop’s Facebook page.  After recently finishing a website for my fine…
