Renew Your Old Tattoo

I just finished reworking this old tattoo… And I’ll go with the sentiment.
 
 Have a good night everyone!

Pig on a Bike Coverup

Tattoos are a commitment, and they’re only as permanent as the passing times in our lives.
 
 Coverups are a way for tattoos to change and grow with us!
 
 When considering a coverup, I recommend temporarily forgetting it’s a coverup. Think of two or three ideas that you’d love to have if you were getting a brand spankin’ new tattoo. Email me with questions or to set up a consult and we’ll discuss and plan the piece. Once we have the concept in place, the key to a quality coverup is flexibility in size, detail, texture and color – these allow us to transition the old into the new!

Stained Glass coverup

I love a good coverup – and what makes a for solid coverup is a client knows what they want their new tattoo to be, and who’s open to the creative process and flexible in how we get there.
 
 This is a fantastic example of having a solid design idea to begin with –
 a stained glass inspired Cicada – and then flexibility in size, detail, color, texture and flow to let the new tattoo take on a life of its own. LOVE this piece!

Semicolon

All the feels around this tattoo!
 
 “A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended, but chose not to. That author is you and the sentence is your life.”
 
 Yes this. Kindness is free. Be good to one another. And to yourself.
