Hawk and snake

March 25, 2010 § 2 Comments

Dug is a tattooer from NH. In the past he worked with me at Cobra part time.
We started this project close to 2 years ago! Hard to believe how time flies…
Schedules and the feeling of getting his front tattooed kept us from getting together as often as we had hoped for.
I was really excited about making this tattoo! I had been thinking of images like this for years. Many of my fav’s are projects i have had running around in my head and wished i could have gotten for myself! I am happy to have atleast made it for someone else so i can get it off my mind. Thnx Dug!

Owl’s for Mike

March 22, 2010 § 1 Comment

Mike is a tattooer from Rhode Island.
He’s one of the most articulate and interesting characters i tattoo.
Full of energy and word play, he makes time really fly by. These Owls and backgrounds repesent spring and fall.
A couple more sittings and the shorts will be completed all the way around.

Please keep in mind. I am shooting alot of these photos with my camera/ phone. I like to take quick in-progress shots often. Quality isn’t always the best but you get the idea.

Jared and I have been working on his full sleeve – chest panel pretty steady.
He’s super excited! And always into it.
He sits like a champ and wants to come in to get tattooed as much as possible. His step dad is a serious biker dude,no messin’ around Mofo
that i’m super cool with. He’s got alot of tattoos over the years also, so Jared’s got some big shoes to follow in.
Jared’s a tough kid with big heart and he’s doing great! This is only his second tattoo!

Albion was open minded to something different. We found these creatures to be very fitting to her spirit!
I made these at Blackheart tattoo in SF. This shop is so cool.! Thanks guys.
Albion you rule!

Andy came in with the idea of a skull on his chest. I said chest pannel? Side profile? He’s like na? Maybe middle? With wings? I said,dude! Thats kinda heavy man. check it out! Let me sketch a little w/ my red marker. I got an idea!
And it just kinda happened first try.!?
Thats pretty rare. I guess magic can happen once in a while…

This tattoo is one of my favorites. This is the style of tattooing i’m trying to create on a regular basis. If i could make this my signature style i would be pleased. I made this job for a guy named Mark. He flew up from Washington D.C. A few times to make it. It was his first tattoo of size, so he experienced the full effects of being tattooed on the torsoe. Very different from an arm or common leg areas. Even ones hardcore Military background can’t save you from the Tattoos Fire!
