Hey kids. I did these pretty tradition sparrow tattoos on the ribs a few nights ago. This dude came in as a walk-in and we got him in and out but I love doing pieces like this. If anyone wants to do some tattoos like this I would most definitely be down to do some more pieces like this. I am booking tattoos for September now so get at me before everyone gets back to school and I’ll be way more booked up. Love y’all and thanks for looking.
Did these fun dancing skeleton friendship tattoos a few weeks ago at the shop. I am currently booking appointments at my new shop so if you’re interested in getting tattooed in the near future shoot me a detailed email to email@example.com for details.
So, a few days ago I hit a huge milestone in my existence on this planet . 100 days without dependance on any substances for the first time in my entire adult life. It’s also ironic that it comes only a few days after I celebrated my 20th year tattooing. I don’t think words can ever express completely the feeling of immense gratitude that I have lately, so I’m not even going to try. But I really am so thankful to everybody who believed in me, supported me and stuck by my side through all those tough past years. Most importantly my beautiful girlfriend and my family. I now know how rough it must have been sometimes and also how ridiculously hard it is to see someone you know just blatantly throwing away their talents and life to drugs or alcohol.
All I know is that is I have achieved so much in these first 100 days and it’s been an uphill kayak battle to get where I am right now, but honestly just wait because I’m only getting started and with the help and support of my loved ones and friends I am striving to reach my full potential both in my art, tattoos and most importantly my life. Everyone knows I’ve wasted enough time and I’m so blessed to be where I am today: I have a job tattooing full-time that I love, at a shop that I love working at, in a city that I love being in. I couldn’t imagine a better situation to come back from being a total mess of a human being to. I know that there’s definitely a reason why I am still alive and where I am in my life today and I hope that I can grow into the person that I knew I was capable of being and to grow old into the tattoo artist I’ve been preparing to be for the past 20 years. Ok, enough mushy bullshit: let’s make some art and tattoos and catch up on lost time.
I have been trying my damnedest to keep most of my newer my artwork secret lately, that way whenever I come out with my sketchbook for publication, all my followers on Tumblr, Facebook or whatever haven’t already seen or tattooed everything in the book.
However, I scanned in the first real piece of flash for the book and I just thought I would share: I can’t wait to paint this piece later today.
I had a great Friday the 13th flash day at Underground Art yesterday. I seriously love these days and thanks to everybody that came out and supported local artists. These are the tattoos that I remembered to photograph but if I did one on you and it isn’t featured here shoot me a picture if it and I’ll add it to my story on Instagram
So it’s that time of year again, Friday the 13th is upon us. This Friday, December 13th 2019 I’ll be doing any tattoo on this sheet from $60-$120 depending on size and color. I will be tattooing at Underground Art in Memphis, Tennessee starting at 3 pm and will be on a first come, first serve basis. For more information please give the shop a call at (901)272-1864 or shoot me a email to firstname.lastname@example.org and check out my Instagram to keep posted on future events.
