When someone comes into my studio and tells me they’ve been told the tattoo cover up they want is “impossible”, the smile on their face as they leave with their NEW custom tattoo is THE BEST.

I love the challenge of a cover up! Very few things are “impossible”. It’s all in how you approach it.

A great example of reworking an older tattoo to restore clarity and detail!

Alright – here’s a little spring break fun. I’ve long been a fan of Ötzi as well as Radio Lab. So it was fun to see the two come together.

Here you go – the story of Ötzi the iceman, dated at 5000BC, covered with more than fifty tattoos – all of which correspond to areas of injury suggesting the tattoos were used as a mode of healing. Check it out. Cool stuff.

I’m on spring break this week, and I have a few fun posts planned for this week on one aspect of tattoo history. But let’s start with a brand new tattoo from Friday – a colorful custom tattoo tribute to Pachamama!

This person has such a fabulous sense of humor. When we finished this custom tattoo cover up she said, “If you post this, make sure you write ‘NEVER do this!’” I love humor to lighten awkward moments.
 
 Life changes. And so can our tattoos.

Fresh ink! Just finished Scott’s new tattoo! Gotta love the striking silhouette, a dynamic use of black work in the medium of tattooing. Simple and beautiful.

Riley traveled from Rhode Island to Minneapolis to add on to the Tahitian tattoo we started last year. His tattoo design is a twelve year timeline telling the narrative of his life. This is what custom tattoos are all about – the narratives of our lives. Great work, Riley! And fabulous to see you, as always.

We just finished Amanda’s Dala horse, honoring her Grandmother. Amanda wanted black and gray, but she also wanted some color. I think the juxtaposition of the simplicity of the horse with the detail of the color gives this custom tattoo a *snap*

We just finished reworking Allison’s Celtic tattoo. It’s amazing what reworking lettering and adding Celtic knotwork does to bring the design together! One more reason custom tattoos rock!
