No, it's not a tattoo of Gary Busey.

I spent most of my day working on this awesome owl, on this awesome guy! It’s a cover-up of an old tribal armband. His lady got this bird on a branch last year, and she is also awesome.

The owl took two big sessions to finish.

Then a friend stopped by- and I decided to take pictures of the tattoos I’ve done on her over the years.

The end of the night, I was inspired by the work of Gary Busey to apply this startled samsquatch tattoo on Whitney. It’s not a tattoo of Gary Busey, it’s a tattoo inspired by the work of Gary Busey.

She took it like a man.

Curby had been finished for a while, and was drawing next door when I got done. Here he is, waiting for the Busey frenzy to have passed.
