Fly the Flag

After working convention after convention under the Incognito banner, the banner of whoever I was splitting a both with, or (too often) no banner at all, I finally got my own printed. Better late than never, right? John at K & J Speedy Print took care of it for me, he printed Spencer's last month and it's killer. So if you're looking for me in SLC, I'll be under this...

Salt Lake City Tattoo Convention 2011

I'm headed back to Salt Lake City with Tim Forbus for the Tattoo Convention at the Salt Palace; we'll be there February 18th, 19th & 20th. You can get all the details on the convention here. As of today I'm setting up appointments (I've got some spots left), so if you'd like to set something up I need...
  • Subject Matter
  • Size
  • Location
  • Color or Black & Grey
  • Preferred Date
And if you have any reference images attach those to your e-mail as well. See you in February.

Two Spiders

I did these two spiders at American Electric just a few days apart. Whenever you get to do more than one of something it gives you a chance to try different things, approach the same design different ways. I'm pretty into both of them. Mostly, I'm into the "FTW" hidden in the bottom of the web. Every once in a blue moon I get to do some funny tattoos.

Temporary Tattoos

People will come into the shop every now and then and ask about temporary tattoos, I never know what to tell them. I found these on Ebay, it turns out temporary tattoos used to be A LOT cooler. The seller said they were possibly from the 40's, but I can't find anything here that even says who made them. I was surprised how well done these designs are, they'd make killer tattoos if you just added nipples (or bras and/or panties for a more PG effect) and a little color. Turns out even silly stuff like temporary tattoos were cooler way back when.
