Its been a minute since the last time I posted anything. I have recently returned from a guest spot in Panama City Beach,Florida. Black Cat Tattoo is my old stomping grounds and where I was tought to tattoo by Albee. I am grateful for all that I was given, and the things that were shown to me by my co-workers. I get homesick from time to time and need a fix of  that familiarity, the very place I call home, and always will. This trip was a little different from the last few, I want to thank everybody that came in the shop to visit me, and the friends that gave me they’re hard-earned money for a tattoo. It really meant a lot to me to have that love still there waiting for me when I visit. I don’t like to look at people like “clients”, I prefer to look at them like friends who allow me to do the very thing that I love the most, I am very blessed to have every one of them in my life. I am going to show you a few pictures from my trip, and then a few paintings that I have finished up.

The picture above was done on the inner thigh, ouch…

These are always fun.

These picture were taken with my Iphone, so I apologize if they don’t look as good as they do on Instagram..

I miss this place, and my family that works here.

How could you not love this?

Here are a few random pics of projects and paintings that i have completed.

566 Boulevard SE Atlanta Ga. Come see us.

This was a paint trade to the Mrs. Lana Gooding who works at Virtue Tattoo in Houston,TX. Lana is an awesome tattooer and person, take a minute to look at her work.

I painted this and have plans to tattoo it on my girlfriend ASAP, she called dibbs and I aint about to try her!

Here is a fun tattoo “Sailor Jerry” piece that I finished up not too long ago.

Above is a painting that I finished, it is also a tattoo that I will be finishing next week, I am pretty excited about it.

I did this painting and handed it to my mentor and good friend Albee. I hope he liked it because I about threw up doing all that stippling!

A little background I finished on this elbow rose.

My trip went way better than I thought it would. I would like to give an open apology to those that I did not get to, I got in a little over my head and lost track of time. It was great hangin’ out with my old crew at Black Cat Tattoo, Darren Anderson, and Megan Fernandez are on my page for you viewing pleasure, so check them out! Picking each other’s brains for a new way of doing things is always my favorite thing about working with other artists. Getting a chance to work around the crew at Black Cat was refreshing and helpful in guiding me towards something a little better than what I was currently doing. Here is an owl below that I did on an existing client and friend of mine.

This was great piece, and I was grateful to have had the chance o do it. Below is a panther eating a girl’s head. I have seen a good bit of these done, and most of them are incredible. I took a few tips from Megan, and did a version that could fit on the top of a foot. It was fun, although I believe the next time I see Kevin, I will bug him to add something around it. Kevin Roth was the gentleman that received this tattoo, a very kind and appreciative soul.

Right below is my buddy Scot Thorpe. We have been working on a sleeve piece by piece. This is what I added while I was in PCB.

The piece above was taken from some old flash by Ben Corday, very awesome imagery.

The picture above ended up being a little shiny, but it’s the best one out of 500 that I took! I started this tattoo a while back, and this time to PCB I got to finish it. The random flower at top was already there before we started, I plan on re-doing it and adding it to the present tattoo.

Below here is a Sailor Jerry Hula Girl, this young lady was a walk-in at Black Cat, and I love me some Sailor Jerry .

And one more for  the road, below is a swallow and horseshoe that I tattooed on a young lady’s shoulder. PCB was real good to me, I will being seeing them again real soon!

Thank you for stopin’ by!
