Sugar is sweet but vagina is betterI had a good time tattooing this gentleman. His my name is my name too. There are so many twists that you can put on this type of  imagery, I feel like you should stay true to its design yet make it creative enough to show that you can go above the Google Stampede.

 This young lady by the name of Lori was a pleasure to meet and work with. Lori was passing through Atlanta and wanted to get a tattoo at our shop before she left. This was the image she asked for and I was pretty excited to draw it up or her. There were a few really great tattoos that she wore proudly, honored to be next to some of them.

I did this butterfly on my good friend and great tattooer Cori James. I work with this young lady and I can tell you that she is tough as nails.

Titties…. need I say more

This gentleman came to me on his way through Atlanta as well. I had so much fun with him and his lady. Truly great people.

Tattooed this on my new friend Nick. I was pretty stoked to put this next to a Krooked Ken piece.

A day with out a dagger is like a day with out water.

I have not posted in a long time. I have a lot that I have been doing, I have just been lazy on this end of my social skills.

Well, I figure one last update is in order before the end of the world, or at least until I wake up on Saturday and find out that I still have bills to pay,Christmas to celebrate,and a headlight that still needs to be replaced on my recently renewed, crash tested 2012 Kia Soul. Thank God the officer was kind enough to keep me waiting in suspense, while he questioned my child’s age, and school district as though I had decided to steal this mini toaster with a missing headlight away from an under middle class single parent. Anyways, here is what I have been up to the last few months.

wuff head, ya dumb dumb

This tattoo above was done on my good buddy Mike. We are still in the process of adding a dream catcher underneath of it.

Below is a tattoo that I did on Pippin. Pippin came to me with an idea from the movie, “Lawless”. Lawless is an incredible movie and I highly recommend you watch it

heart, balls, who gives a crap, they both get you in troubleAfter watching this movie, I became obsessed and read the book as well.

Above is a painting that I did for my friend Lucy. Lucy is expecting a child and I congratulated her with this token for her daughter’s room, and she also was awesome enough to get tickets to a show for me and my lady!

063The tattoo above was done on one of my really great clients and friend, Corey. He brought me in the reference and I changed a few things and added my own take on it. This was a fun tattoo because I don’t typically use some of these colors in my custom work.

Below is a rad tattoo on a client that wanted some type of family tree oriented theme.

intials dont grow on trees silly..There have been so many great people coming to me for work, and I feel very blessed to have them in my life.

The last few months have taken a minute to get used to, but I can say that this is the happiest I have been since moving to Georgia. Now this isn’t to discredit the time and efforts leading up to this, but things are starting to take shape.

Tom Wates for no oneI had a petty good time doing this little hour-glass tattoo.

meee yowThis was a fun walk in, she had many great tattoos and I was excited to add another one to her collection.

Roses are red, fuck you..What a fun little painting, I based it off of a photo from the 20’s. It was a tattoo on a lady’s back, I really liked it and felt like painting it. I later gifted it to my good friend and co-worker’s daughter, Brett Pundt. Talented artist that guy is.

I am very happy to announce that I am now working at “Live Free Tattoo”. Located in Grant Park and owned by good friend and all around bad ass, Jason Kelly. The shop is in transition as well as an overhaul from the previous owners, Phil Colvin (Memorial Tattoo,ATL) and Shay Cannon (Liberty Tattoo, ATL.) The change of hands has been a great addition to the Atlanta tattoo scene. I am happy and proud, as well as honored to be working with such great artists. So many things about  this new studio has got my head buzzing. I will keep this page updated and for anybody who is interested in checking it out, you can do so at: Livefreetattoo.com

If you have an instagram, you can find us there as well- Livefreetattoo@instagram

I am in a place where I am finding another kind of happiness. Thank you Phil Colvin for bringing me to Atlanta, thank you Jason Kelly for surrounding me with positive vibes and believing in me, and for giving me a spot in your life, and studio.

I also have to thank my friends  Brett Pundt, Jason Smalley, Cori James, Tad Coleman, Kaki Cannon, Shay Cannon, and The Liberty Crew as well as The Memorial Crew for being by my side and being my strength in times when I thought the dark would stay forever, I love you guys.

Most importantly, I could have never moved forward in my life as an artist, or anything else without my loving family’s support. Thank you Melissa and Stiletto
