Tattoo Snob


The good folks over at Tattoo Snob were nice enough to post a picture of mine. If you haven't checked out their blog you're missing some great work; lots of nice tattoos and some cool traditional pieces scattered in there as well. I was going to watermark this screen grab and make it a three-peat, but that felt like overkill. Also, I'm not giving a dime to that crook Pat Riley.

NEW JAMS

No rhyme or reason here, just a grab bag of tattoos that I'm putting up. This arrowhead was a pleasant surprise, she came in as a walk-in first thing when we opened. 

This lantern was a a fun project. Memorials can get weird, but I think we made it into something nice... and you can't go wrong with The Smiths!

I tattoos lots of walk-ins, this rose is on the bigger side of the scale. The best part was when I said, "You can go show this to your boyfriend before I put a patch on it," and quite loudly she responded, "He's not my boyfriend!" I'm glad I didn't have to catch a ride home with those two lovebirds.

I did this Sailor Jerry partners tattoo on Kevin a while back but never got around to posting it. I could do these designs everyday and be smiling the whole time. There's nothing quite as fun as getting to tap into the history of tattooing by retracing the steps of a legend like Sailor Jerry, and that's how it feels every time I tattoo one of his drawings.

I did this Sailor Jerry indian girl head on Chris. We broke it into two sittings, I definitely prefer to work that way, you can get so much more more depth and detail. We're supposed to add some roses around her sooner or later.
