Bronson and Pain

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

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

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

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

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…

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…

Flowers, Ships, and Lions

Flowers, Ships, and Lions

I added mama lion to my Fernley client’s chest and arm piece. I didn’t get finished but made a lot of progress in only two hours. He wore a shirt throughout his session so I didn’t get a picture of the healed up papa lion on his chest, but hopefully next week when we start…

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…
