I love this dude and miss hanging out with him. I always look forward to his random texts with ideas for future tattoos. Never a dull moment, Sean has the most tattoos by me out of all my clients and I’m grateful. He has a really great collection going as well by some very rad […]
This post isn’t about Pirates at all but it is about one of my favorite clients who is well on her way to rivaling Sean for caring the most tattoos by me. Shannon is awesome. She picked up my skull hydrangea piece I had hanging up in the shop after I had done a little walk-in […]
I think most people start off drawing with a pencil. I have a thoroughly stuffed box of drawings from my childhood and I’d say 90% of them are from a #2 pencil. Up until the pass 3-4 years I never “got” color. That is to say I never learned color theory, never studied it or […]
I started doing mandalas this year and am having a lot of fun with it. Now that I have a decent template and workflow I’ve removed most of the geometric stresses and am able to concentrate more on flow and design. If you have been wanting to do something like this I am interested in exploring this subject […]
Sooo I moved, if you hadn’t noticed. My family and I are now in St. Louis, MO and I’m kicking out the jams at TRX Tattoos & Piercings on South Grand Blvd. You can find me working Sundays thru Wednesdays every week. I’m currently booking larger work for January, so if you’d like to get […]
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!
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 […]
Happy New Year everyone, especially as we near the Year of the Horse (for those if you following the Chinese calendar). It’s been a slow winter so far, which means I’m compiling a great deal of drawings and paintings that are ready to be tattooed. I’ll be updating our flash wall at the shop with […]
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 new. The old, about a year or so since we did this Panther head. Thanks again Phil! Peace, -J
