Coverups to Cohesive

Fresh ink from yesterday at Art With a Point! This is the newest addition to a full tattoo sleeve in progress. We’re incorporating several coverups and additions to bring various design elements together as one cohesive sleeve. Good times!

Watercolor Portrait Blend

Today was an awesome memorial tattoo. Custom-abstract-watercolor-portrait-stylized goodness. Super fun. And honored to help honor her Dad. Here’s the preliminary concept sketch and the completed tattoo.

Custom tattoo your custom tattoo

It’s good to be back in the studio after a full week including (of course) tattooing, kicking off the Alliance of Professional Tattooists seminar for artists tattooing at the convention, recovering from a bug and then the convention itself!
 Today we created Kris’ newest tattoo, this one honoring two of her sons. We looked at a lot of styles for rendering the hand. I’m glad she went with portrait realism, right down to the 3D puzzle pieces in the Autism tattoo.
 I love it when a custom tattoo has a custom tattoo!

Forever Home

Hearing people’s stories is one of the best parts of my job. And this one made my day. Two pups who are safe and loved and have a forever home. I hope they like their tattoo. (I’m such a softie for dogs.)
