Traditional pro wrestling tattoo design

A pro wrestling inspired piece of tattoo flash. This was the funnest thing I created all week!

Pheonix wings cover up.

I was approached to help design a cover up for an old yin yang tattoo on a client last week. It was my first true cover up, and  I  was pretty stressed about it. But when the tattoo was finally finished, I was pretty happy about the outcome.

"Finding the quiet below. While warring with the calamity of above."

The ghost deer...

It was a cool November morning, and I was wondering through the woods. The leaves wore dark red and sepia hues and I could smell the cold in the air. But really my mind was totally focused on how much I wish I had packed a piece of bubble gum.. I really wanted a piece of bubble gum. Suddenly I heard a snap directly behind me. I turned to see the large hulking mass of a deer’s ghost. It stood silent and stiff. A very low audible sound whispered through its lips. The large black eyes slowly closed, and reopened. When cats did this. They are telling you they trust you. But I don’t think the deer doing it meant that. That’s when I chuckled. I realized what was going on.” Sorry deer. Your not the ghost.. I am.” I waved to my living friend, and turned back to my walk in the forest.

Spider-man painting, Montana marker illustrations, and some tattoo designs.

 Fatboy repping some ink!!!! Don't worry, I would never do anything to hurt my cats. I just tattooed a photo of my little homie.
 I did a Montana marker demo at a local art supply store last weekend. This was one of the illustrations I created.
 Just a sexy moon girl image.
My favorite super hero. I never get tired of drawing Spider-Man.
Another image from the Montana demo.

Owl tattoo designs, and a gypsy girl head painting.

Two recent paintings. The owls were painted for a client. The gypsy head  was a test at using my painting techniques on a wood panel... I think it turned out pretty interesting.

Some new tattoo designs.

 A blue lotus tattoo on a shoulder.
 A shoulder Lily tattoo.
 A traditional shin tattoo of Pinhead from Hellraiser.
 A lucky horseshoe and diamond tattoo on a lower hip/butt.

A shoulder tribal bear tattoo.
Some new tattoos I've done in the last few weeks!!!

Traditional Swallow tattoo design

Just a little sweet shoulder tattoo I did this last week!!!

large eagle and skull tattoo design painting, and painting influenced by Murder by Deaths song "It's a hard world."

I came up with this design while listening to Murder by Deaths song "It's a hard world." It's a great song, and narrates a strong visual presence. I just decided to try and illustrate what the song was saying.
A new painting I've recently finished. It's pretty damn large. I always like doing bigger pieces, they allow me to try to pack as much detail as I can into it.

Lord Humungus tattoo, and a few other designs.

       A Derby design a friend got, for his girl. She plays on the Cincinnati Roller Girls.
        I find myself tattooing a ton of bird designs. Which is cool with me, I love tattooing birds.
                I don't get to do much black and grey work. So I really enjoy it, when I get it.

 A large scary crow for one of my favorite clients. we are currently working on a bird sleeve for her.

 I put another flower on a clients leg...
 Another bird tattoo. But on a different client.

New tattoos by me...

 A Frankenstein/Bride of Frankenstein Kewpie doll mash-up... This was a total blast, to tattoo. My client was a huge Munsters fan... So she wanted something to commemorate that show.
 My take of a flying fish... I tattooed this on the loveliest woman I know... My fiance Sarah. It's based on some Greek pottery designs, mixed with traditional tattoo esthetic.
 One of my flash designs, come to life. This is tattooed on my good friend/art dealer Lauren. She has an amazing collection of tattoos...  So it was an honor to add to it.

                A David Tennant, 10th Doctor Who tattoo... Super fun...
 The judge from Pink Floyd "The Wall." This was a great challenge for me, with the colors. But I was pretty happy how it turned out.

 These two were facing back thigh tattoos... My client wanted a Lucha- Libre wrestler, and a strong man...
                              A fist bumping tattoo, based on some of my flash...
