Ok, it is officially that time.
I successfully handed out all 1,000 of my previous cards and I’m ready to order more, but before I can order more, I gotta draw and design them first.
Being as I am in an art profession I believe that it would be sacrilegious if I had someone else design my cards, not that I would do that anyways, DIY for life.
After I had two solid designs I decided I wanted to do a set of six and release them regularly, I came up with this design to do first.

Be sure swing by the shop sometime in mid October to pick up your card.
Yeah, I now have one.
It’s too hard to post pictures and videos to my site, so I’m just gonna post all that shit to my Tumblr directly.
The address is here
I literally draw inspiration for my artwork from everything: people I meet, places I go, I’ve even created artwork based off a conversation I had with a complete stranger. I am constantly studying images, breaking them down mentally focusing on the shapes and colors, and how I would do that image as a tattoo.
Everyday I find images that I would love to tattoo on people, if only I had the people who wanted to get these tattoos, haha. So from here on out every few days I’m going to post a picture or two of tattoos that I really want to do, and I’m going to do them at a discounted price, I’m going to call it my “tattoo wishlist” and hopefully it will be a break from the monotony of everyday street shop life.
This weeks tattoo is from one of my favorite games as a kid, Mega Man. I saw it on my 360 one day and actually stumbled across the image again recently. I will do this tattoo full color for $120, and probably way less if I know you personally. If you’d like to get this or any of the tattoos that I will be featuring, just give me a call at the shop: 301-333-1236
I’m obsessed with the number 13. I have it tattooed on my knee and have a ton of other planned tattoos with it incorporated.
Usually associated with bad luck, 13 is a good luck number for me, and good things always happen to me on Friday the 13th.
So when I saw that a bunch of traditional artists that I respect were doing tattoo specials on Friday the 13th, I definitely wanted to be right up there with them. For the past few days I have been working on a Friday the 13th flash sheet and I am going to try and do a tattoo special of my own: Any tattoo off that sheet on Friday the 13th will only be $13. There will be size and color limitations, but I’m not here to make money, all I wanna do is to do fun tattoos that I drew and have a good time. I already have 16 or more friends who have made appointments, so if you wanna get yours be sure to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 301-333-1236, the next Friday the 13th isn’t until May 2011… and who know’s where I’ll be then??!
Here is a page from my sketchbook that has a few rough drafts of what is going be on the flash sheet, just so you have an idea. Depending on who I have help me, I might even be able to draw some custom 13 stuff if you let me know right now. These are just a some rough sketches, I’m going to watercolor and laminate the actual set and sheets will be available for sale for $20.
I did this tattoo the other night.
