Go big or go home! Andrew rocked his first tattoo! (Even dozed a little.). We’ll add black highlights and fill in a couple of weeks.

The wonder duo of a cover up *and* a photo realistic portrait! That’s something you don’t see every day. Part 1 of 2… Next time, color!

Designorama!

So far this afternoon I’ve drafted a Borneo back piece, a half sleeve by Camille Rose Garcia, a Lichtenstein and a back panel of a Humpback Whale. Few things are as sweet as jammin’ to good music while creating sweet tattoos. Good times.

Something fun to do at work

So, I posted this tattoo *LIVE* on Facebook as it evolved in real time on May 4.

This was a lot of fun, so be sure to check out the studio Facebook page for more live tattoos in real time.

Something fun to check in on during the work day, eh?
