a few days in November

flower tattoos, and a mantis.

frogs and toads and pops and Halloween dogs

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-

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.

And the main page has new image and links!

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.

spring thoughts ’23

I’ve been broke this month because I was sick in March. I’m thinking about doing a trunk sale, just maybe ten pieces. I’ll probably go on back to social media to see if there’s any interest.

I’ve been working:

 

and I’ve been busy in the garden as always.

a pleasant disaster
