Recent News, Recent Tattoos

Hey guys, I just wanted to give a quick update and let everyone know that I will no longer be working at X2 Ink in Germantown, however clients can still book appointments by giving me a call or text at 240.442.2868 or sending me an email to bobbyrotten13@gmail.com, describing in detail the tattoo you would like to get, the location and the size you would like to get it. Any photo references and/or links are greatly appreciated.
I am definitely excited at the opportunity to take a short break from the everyday grind of working in a street shop and work on my flash sheets, sketchbook, paintings, music and photography, but I am still on the hunt for another cool custom shop to work in 3 or 4 days a week. I will definitely keep everybody posted on where I will be working from in the near future, but PLEASE subscribe to my blog by entering your email in the lower right side of my blog.
In the meantime, these are a few tattoos that I have done in the past week at X2 Ink:

Watercolor: Revisited

This is the first watercolor that I have done in probably about 3 years.
I lost all technique that I once acquired and feel like I am starting over but this one painting that I did sparked a whole new desire to start painting with watercolors again.
This painting was a lot of fun because I used a traditional rose that I recently did as a tattoo for my reference. This is the first in a series of watercolors that I am doing, so be sure to look for more coming soon.

Dog Teeth

I started a new watercolor painting yesterday. It’s called Dog Teeth..
I am really going to force myself to sit down and start painting everyday, rather then only when I am stressed out and pissed off.
Painting can work wonders for the soul, and it brings my mind to a place of peaceful focus.
I am not really finished with this painting, so I feel odd posting a picture of an unfinished painting, but I’m gonna finish it Thursday, so why the hell not.

I’ll post more pictures here whenever I finish this one. Let me know what you think so far, I am open to criticism from any established artists.
