I always love getting healed photos of my work. I learn more from seeing my tattoos after they’ve settled. You never tattoo just for the fresh photos. I had a lot of fun with this piece and I’m really happy with how it healed up. Thanks for taking care of her Kat!
I’ve quickly realized that lettering is the single most popular thing I’m doing now a days, especially at the beginning of my career. I’m not about to complain about it either, I really have a good time with it when I’m allowed to do my thing. So I always try and talk the client into letting me draw up what they want, it always looks better as a tattoo that way. And there is no shortage of inspiration with the likes of NORM, BJ Betts, Big Meas and loads of others slaying the writing game on a daily basis.
as are some of my latest efforts. The top two were spontaneous walk-ins, the last one we scheduled out so I could map it all out. No matter the flavor I have fun and am always humbled that I get to do this for a living.
Thanks for looking. As always you can find me at Inkman Tattoo on 64th st Saturdays – Tuesdays 1-9pm.

A little while ago I was approached by my buddy Josiah (Ape House) to do a video interview. His work is a way of highlighting the people he knows and gives you some insight as to what they are about. I’m honored he asked me. Hope you enjoy it.
If there is one subject matter I may never grow tired of it’s skulls (of any sentient being). I started and finished this sheet this month; the bottom two designs are reworks of some Bob Wicks flash. Since the page was kind of crowded already I decided to use the background as a Japanese study. There were some good learns: how to shade in clouds (I fucked up the left half and did a better job on the right) as well as some of the rules of waves.
I’m excited to say I got to do my first Misfits tattoo yesterday! Without a doubt one of my favorite punk bands. I was honored to have Matty ask me to tattoo him as he’s been a client of Danh’s for some time.
Thanks for looking.
So I had the pleasure of tattooing one of my oldest riding buddies here in NYC yesterday. It’s always good catching up with old friends.
The old, about a year or so since we did this Panther head.
Thanks again Phil!
