Finished my first sleeve. Here’s a quick write up about the process.
I haven’t painted in a while and it’s bumming me out. However I’ve done some fun tattoos and am working on some bigger pieces that I’m excited to show off soonish. Here’s a fun warrior girl walk-in that I did. It’s based off of some sweet Mauricio flash from the 90s, hope you enjoy.
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!
It’s been a fun year so far. Built my first liner from a Danh Vu Goliath frame. Had fun with this tribal wolf tattoo that I took horrible photos of.

I love walk-ins. Some can be done on the fly, while others require hours of research and drawing. These two are my favorites recently. Kristy’s Roses were done over two sessions and Kat’s compass/clock took me many hours of cross eyed drawing before we sat down to knock it out in one session. I also […]
It’s typical for someone to walk in with a drawing or photo of what they want tattooed. Certain people are dead set on the picture in their hand, others (thank the stars) are as flexible as snakes. This is an example of a client trusting me enough collaborate on the final product. This is what […]
So I’ve not forgotten about the internet… believe me, I’ve wasted far too much time on it in the past several months. However I have been really busy. I am working at Inkman Tattoo on 18th ave now, I’ve been there almost a year at this point. And I can’t thank everyone there enough for what […]
