My very good friend Mike came in the shop to get a dagger on his forearm that held a personal message and meaning for himself. I've always digged dagger tattoos, probly because I was obsessed with the VCJ artwork that decorated Powell Peralta skate decks back in the 80's. His dagger designed for the Tommy Guerrero board was wicked. That design was part inspiration for this tattoo in that they both have skulls on the handle. Thanks again Mike, your a great friend, and a great person who allows me to do sick tattoos on!
This past weekend I traveled to Little Rock to take part in a custom paint and pinstriping event held at the annual Auto Extravaganza. I was in good company with Spider Papa, Paul Quinn, Zeke Lemanski, and Howie Nisgor. This Elvis impersonator was right on! He put on a badass show while we painted! The panel above was done by me, along with the sloppy easel tag below I mopped on with silver Panel above painted by Quinn, he's got that faux chrome down! Howie doing his unique style above Above and below is Zeke and his funky striping. I really like Zeke and wish I had the opportunity to hang out with him more often
My very good friend Staci came in the shop to get two tattoos recently. She's a great person to tattoo because she supplies me with the general idea, and then allows me to take the creative process to a final concept. It's always good when I have input on the tattoo such as the colors involved with the cupcake piece. Thanks again Staci!
