Here’s a fresh spankin’ new custom coverup done in black and gray! Successful cover ups are all about flexibility with size, detail, textures and color. All of these elements work together to blend the old tattoo into the new tattoo. While color is typically necessary to nail a solid coverup, in this design the size, detail and texture came together beautifully to complete this black and gray geometric Mandala.

And my speakeasy neighbor comes above ground for one shining moment!
 
 Check out the article in today’s Minneapolis Star Tribune!
 
 ”Volstead’s Emporium opened late last year in Minneapolis with no promotion, website or social media listing of its Lyn-Lake area address. Emblematic of the Prohibition era, guests must navigate a dark alley until they stumble upon a door with an eye-level slot, leading to the subterranean sanctuary of red velvet and chandeliers.”

What an awesome morning! A first tattoo, on a chaplain, celebrating her 75th birthday. And she rocked it!

One of the best things about tattooing is the wide variety of fantastic people I get to meet and work with every day!

Awesome to see tattoo history represented at the Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention! This memorabilia from the collection at the Tattoo-Piercing Museum in Somerset, PA.
 
 I took a class in Tattoo Machine Building from Lyle Tuttle years ago. Top pic shows pieces of Lyle’s from the collection.

Fresh Ink! Had a great time tattooing this black and grey forearm panel of the Archangel Michael today.
 
 I elaborated on this classic image with detail including clouds, smoke and texture. Gotta love a custom tattoo designed uniquely for the client. That’s how we roll!
