the happy customer 🙂

to get this:

had a !LOT! of fun on this one. i love old skool monsters & horror + this portrait had a ton of color to play with – all super kickass winners in my book.

will be posting the video footage of this piece soon — check back to see it!

did this piece on a music lover (obviously) the first day of the convention.  after a shit load of humidity, waiting, + bad ride situations, we finally got this piece done just in time to enter it for the tattoo of the day contest.  think the plan is gonna be to lace out the whole leg in iconic musical legends — can’t wait to see who will be on his leg next!

Any artist out there working on a large piece knows the agony of waiting. The particular pain tolerance of the client, their ability to SiT, how their skin heals out, their schedule to even come in, etc., etc., the list is endless… it’s like bart + lisa in the backseat chanting, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet??”

I don’t know if it’s all those episodes of Miami Ink & LA Ink, but people, most large pieces are not done in one sitting – let alone 10 minutes. come on now. 😛

Here are two wonderful, consistent, committed clients – just 1/2 sessions away from being complete…

dragon backpiece

fudog rib piece

both of these pieces were started a few months ago and are finally on the homestretch of being DONE — can’t wait to finish them up and then hurry up and wait for them to heal out. 😉
