and it’s snowing

it’s been up into the 70s F the past week and today it froze and snowed.

Halloween flash time coming up!

I LOVE HALLOWEEN as you all know. So I drew some things and set aside a day to do them, October 28th-

use this link to book time that day directly,

no need to email or call. just click through and scroll down to pick a time.

smog monster!

Thing Dog!

IT IS BATS

let me know which design number you want; each has an orange number next to it. if you’re not sure, add a lil description.
come in costume if you want, but you don’t have to- I just love halloween.

if you are far away and want to take these to a local artist to be done, please just drop me a few bucks via cashapp, paypal or venmo. 

(these flash designs are mine, but you can get another tattooer to tattoo them if you pay for the reproduction right)

minor site updates!

I’ve rearranged and freshened up a little.

there’s now a garden page, I will be fleshing out a little better.

I finally put in a portfolio gallery, it still needs a little work.

And the main page has new image and links!

fresh tattoos under the fold.

flash vs “want to do” art – what’s the difference?

 

22×30″ sheet of flash.

it’s pretty simple.

flash is a drawing or design that a tattoo artist will do on anyone, repeatedly, it’s not a unique or singular image.

they’ve drawn or purchased the rights to tattoo it as much and as often as they want, and it’s often really cool.

want to do this” means the artist has drawn a custom design and wants to do it, once, on one person.

the word “flash” is the difference: flash means images you can “flash” to show customers what you can do.

in the old days it was up on the walls, or in racks, in every shop and you would walk in and pick something.

it was all pre drawn, repeatable, ready to go.

adding to an older tattoo.

finishing a sleeve; mushroom and snail and fern

One of my favorite clients and favorite projects, a sleeve full of mucky color washes, woodcut lines, snails, ferns, moths and blackberries with mushrooms. there’s a few smoky quartz crystals in there too.

Halloween week!

Saturday!
