I pushed for a gold tooth to top it off, but no dice.... yet.
Isaac has been getting tattooed by me fairly regularly since he started coming in, but this fall he decided to move back to Sacramento. He has the sleeve with the large nurse head I posted previously, and we added an octopus taking down a ship and a Join or Die snake later on. It's a shame to see him go since he's been a great customer, and a nice guy as well. Have fun up north, hella fun.
The silver lining is, I outlined his chest the night before he left, so I know he'll be back soon.

I got this sheet off Brain last week, and it's the single coolest piece of tattoo anything I've ever touched with my two hands. This sheet is from Col. Todd & Bob Shaw's shop in Hollywood, just a few miles away from where I work now. Beyond being a great sheet, there aren't many sheets that tell you the shop they're from and the year they were made. Hell, probably half the sheets out there (maybe even more) aren't even signed.
Santa, ya did good.

David Liebe Hart paint the windows at American Elelctric. You might know David from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, you can check out his website here. Tim Forbus has been wound up about this since Adrian sent him the flyer over a month ago. It turns out David's rates are absurdly reasonable, far below any comparable sign painter, and can you really put a price on creativity? Also, we picked up 3 CDs, Trains of the Past and Present being the clear winner of the bunch. Originally Craig wanted penises wearing santa hats, but we're across from a grade school so he settled for a shirtless Santa, Snowman, and an alien (behind the door) all packing huge junk. Compromise is the name of the game in 2010.

This isn't what I'd call a set of flash, but it's all the pages I have available. The Indian girl was censored for MySpace, but I assure you there are titties under there. The convention sheets are two separate sheets that make one image, so they're 14" tall by 22" wide. Everything comes with lines and reversed lines, 'cause I know what a headache it is to trace this shit on the spot.
If you're interested, call the shop and let me know which sheets you'd like, I can give you a $$ with shipping.
