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!

Watercolor Chickadee

Susie’s first tattoo! Inspired by a card she received, the subtle watercolor style of the design translated nicely into her tattoo.
 
 Tattoo tip: as you plan your next tattoo, consider what style your like for the design as well as the design content itself.

Portrait as Cover Up

“Ollie” came back for a photo, now that he’s all healed up. Nice to see that the portrait served well to cover the old tattoo!

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!
