This Pony Needed Wheels!

Fresh ink on Baller, team Captain for the Delti Delti Di! This tattoo needed some wheels – gotta love the options you have with a custom tattoo. Now her MLP is ready to roll.

Best. Tattoo. Ever.

This is one of my all time favorite tattoos! Pony Bunyan and Babe! There’s nothing more awesome than a whimsical sense of humor, and a tattoo concept customized to reflect the wearer.
 
 Pony Bunyan was originally done at the Safe Schools for ALL Youth fundraiser that I held. Several tattoo shops around the country did similar events. In this context, those of us sporting the MLP tattoos are doing so in solidarity with youth facing adversity based on who they are or what they like.
 
 We say, be yourself!

Sweet Peas

Fresh pea pods! Originally based off of a woodcut design of a single pea pod, we customized this tattoo to represent a number of life passages. And added some greens to give the woodcut style vibrancy.

Duuuude, the Sea Turtle

So much fun! Teri’s newest ink, a memorial for her spouse (and my friend and client) Danny. Look closely to find (more than one) Celtic and musical references. This is one happy, chill sea turtle. Gotta love a custom tattoo!

Otzi rocked tattoos 5000 yrs ago

Otzi is who I have to thank for getting into tattooing. A 5000 year old art form used for art, for healing and for expression captivated me… And here I am 20 years later.

Plus, Radio Lab rocks.
