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.

So Many Mayans, So Little Time…

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.

Things happen and sometimes it takes ahold on you in such a profound way that you have trouble coping or even expressing your feelings. This has been my week. Today is another day, and all of this has shown me how precious every moment really is.

Here is a little number I did while I was PCB. A real good time, and a timeless tattoo. Thank you for reading!

Yesterday was a great day for tattoos. I had a chance to do some really fun stuff.

Hunter was a real sport. The elbow is not fun at all.

Justin is another trooper. Didn’t flinch a bit.

I will be doing a guest spot at Livewire Tattoo Aug.25-27th.  located in Jacksonville,Fl. I have heard great things about the shop and it’s owner Jason Harms, as well as Ms. Margot Audler. I am excited about making the trip and meeting new people. If you are close or live in the area, please call and set up an appointment with me while I am there. I did this tomahawk tattoo on a young lady who is an Atlanta Braves fanatic. The family and I are huge Braves fans as well, and so this made doing the tattoo even better.

Thank you for taking a minute and looking at my blog. I hope to make some new friends in Jacksonville. My good friend Justin is being nice enough to house me while I’m there. I will posting pictures soon of the chest piece that I am currently doing on Justin. Thank you!

 

Today at FYTG

Business is starting to pick back up at Forever Yours Tattoo Gallery, and this makes me breath with a sigh of comfort. I decided to paint something in between tattoos today, I had some scrap pieces of paper lying around so I put one of them to use. I used some old flash reference that I have been eye-ballin’  lately and started to drawing. I have to admit, lately I have been really diggin’ on a few artists and they’re approach to art. I suggest you take a look at Christopher Ayalin, Raymond Wallace, Bradley Thompkins, Greg Christain, and Claudia De Sabe. Those are just a few on a long list of awesome artists that I look at daily to remind myself to keep drawing! This is what I did today 7-30-11.
