Lilies and Swirls

Did this last week.  She wanted to get it all done in one session.  It took about 3 1/2 hours (maybe a little over).  She sure sat like a champ!

Did this tulip a couple of weeks ago.  It's only finished for now.  We may end up adding some more tulips around it later.  Those ribs are tough spot, especially for your first tattoo!

Cardinals on Dogwood Branch

Finished up these little birdies a few weeks ago but I've just been too busy to post them yet.  Hope you enjoy them!

Healed Dog Portrait

This is the same dog portrait I posted a few weeks ago.  The customer was nice enough to come back to the shop so that I could take a healed picture of it.  Fresh black and gray tattoos often appear far darker than what the "true" color will turn out to be, so it's better to get a picture once it's had time to heal.  However, when I did the tattoo originally I was just super excited and wanted to post it right away. :)

First Tattooed Dog Portrait

You all know that I paint pet portraits for people quite often, but I've never tattooed one...until now.  So here is the very first dog portrait I've actually gotten to tattoo!  I hope you like it!

Pirate Parrot Dream Catcher Memorial

I just finished up this piece this past Tuesday, 6/5/12.  If anyone follows me on Facebook, I'm sure you've seen the progress of this memorial piece since the beginning in January.  Enjoy!

Tree and Fox, In Progress

This one is only finished for now.  Eventually we're going to add some more things around this to make it a whole scene!

Butterfly and Calla Liliy fix up

This is a fix up/added to tattoo.  This lady originally had just the butterfly and the 2 swirls coming off the sides of the butterfly, but it was all just black.  To fill out the tattoo a little more, I added the Calla Lilies and some more swirls and colored it all to make it stand out more than it had before.

An interesting collage to celebrate her mom!

Finally finished this good/evil piece.  This is the "evil" side we just finished up.  I have also included a close up of the angel and demon so it's a little easier to see.  The clouds around it go on to the front of his check and lighten up for the "good" side.  On his chest are praying hands (which he already had, I just re-touched them) with light rays (photo included here).

Lilies and Ivy Cover up

This is a piece that we just finished about a week or so ago, but started this past summer.  In the bottom right corner you can see the tattoo that the customer had before we covered it up with these lilies.  Quite an improvement!

Dog Portrait- Cisco

I did this portrait as a (very) late Christmas present to my wonderful brother and sister-in-law.  This is their shiba inu, Cisco!

If anyone is interested in pet portraits, please email me at for information!

Sparrow and Rainbow

This is a little birdie I did a week or so ago.  It's been a while since I've posted on here, but it's certainly not for lack of things to post!  It's really picking up here at the shop now that we're out of our holiday slow season.  That's really good for us, but it may take a little longer than usual for me to post my projects.  Keep checking back for new stuff!

Ladybug and Peace Lily

A new tattoo from this past Saturday, February 11th.  This is probably my favorite type of tattoo to do.  It's bright, colorful, and of course I always love to do flowers!

Moth, Figure C.

I did this little moth last night.  Eventually the customer is going to add a couple of other species to the other side of her arm to finish off the theme of very scientific, text book style moths.  It's going to look pretty neat when it's all complete!

I did this tattoo on Saturday night.  I'm trying to experiment with using less black lining around tattoos to give them a softer appearance, especially with black and gray.

I was super excited to do this tattoo last night.  The Nightmare Before Christmas is my absolute most favorite movie and I always love getting to tattoo some of the characters!  I was also really happy with the way she turned out!

Breast Cancer Ribbons

I actually did both of these on New Year's Eve.  Sorry for the blurry photos!
