two days til Vegas!

 So some interesting tattoos have come in lately... which is a good thing! Very excited for this weekend... heading to Vegas for the very first time!

This one was a walkin done in NJ, this is a version of her husband's badge... who has since passed on. Definitely a challenge, lots of gold and blue. Got to experiment with color and another challenge was all that lettering, some of which is really small! Looking back of course there's a few things I would have changed/done differently, however she was very happy with it and I got to do a badge. I asked her to come in when it's healed so I can see how the blue turned out and put some more highlights in there. Really cool lady, hope to see her back soon.
 This was a walkin from a month ago over in NJ... we did the outline the first time and he stopped in to get some color... really excited about this one, never tattooed a Koi before. I really enjoyed this tattoo, however I feel as though more shading is needed... I'm going to work on more sketches of koi and color studies to perfect this....














 This was a fixup/ add on. She came in with the name already there (see below) and wanted some filligree stuff and a heart added, as well as clean up the exsisting tattoo...











I was working 4th street the other day when my friend/client Steve stopped in to get more added onto his poly 1/2 sleeve we started. Very excited about this tattoo.. I get to try my hand at more polynesian style and have some fun doing my thing! We added a section to it, start to finish. Here is the drawing before we got started.....










 Finished product... had some fun with this one... can't wait to add more to cap off his shoulder and touch up the eyeball dude... definitely an interesting tattoo!

 A walkin in NJ the other day... this is a band logo and he wanted drumsticks behind it. The lettering could be more perfect, however he did give me some artistic license with the design a little bit so overall we were both happy with it. He plans on getting more work on this arm soon so I can get a good luck at those letters again....
Walkin in NJ as well... this is still my problem area when tattooing... can never get the best stretch! However I think after doing a bunch of these I've found a method that works best for me...










So this one is definitely an interesting design. I met this guy over at No Ka Oi about a week ago, we discussed the design he wanted, an infinity type symbol in blue with two happy faces inside the loops. He was very specfic about what he wanted, so after a week of emails and sketches and color studies this is what we came up with. I had some fun with this one because I love to draw faces, and fun ones at that! It gave me a chance to play around with the caricature-type style faces and put a bit of me into this design. I'm really happy with this one and so was he.





 I'm down at the South Street shop today, not too busy of a day so far. A couple walked in wanting a word on their wrists, so Clay and I both did one, here's mine... Clay's awesome script skills at work :) Forgive the crappy photo, damn iphone 3G certainly doesn't live up to the standards these days......
I did this one yesterday while I NJ.... the expression "early bird gets the worm" certainly applied yesterday. I'm usually on time for work, or a bit late depending on how my morning goes... and I decided to get in a bit early yesterday because I have my trip coming up and hey, ya never know what could come in... good thing i did. He was waiting outside the minute I pulled up. Lucky me :)




More to come! I'll be posting more soon!
