Oh darn. forgot to add in the last post. Here is a fun rose I done a week or two ago and meant to post. Was really fun to do just this on its own. She is getting a Violet i believe on the same spot, but other arm. Her Grandmas name is Violet Rose i think. cool idea!!!

Rise or Die aka The Collect.

Seriously have been picking away at this since 2008 when i worked in Gastown at Irezumi Tattoo with Jamie. got the original idea back then, sketched it. lt it sit for a long time. Looked at it and revised small things at another shop i worked at after that. The started at Eastside Tattoo Parlour, and finally did a final outline on watercolour paper. sat on it for oh say about 6 months now. Painted about half of it a few weeks ago, and finished it today!!! Been to busy to give it the tim eit needed. But had a slow week so i took advantage of it. Now im right back at it, so i hope i can still squeeze in time to do more things like this. I got a cool owl in the works. same size. Im doing it for an art show im hopeing to get into. Called "The Cheaper Show". Its pretty awesome, lots of amazing artists sell there art for one basic equal price. So fingers crossed for now, but may aswell get an early start considering how long it took me to do this.

p.s. more tattoos soon, got lots on the go. so make sure to check back!

Finally! got to colour this thing! His original plan was black and grey only but after some convincing he decided to get colour! We outlined it a couple weeks ago, and did the colour today. All together it took about 3 and a half hours of fun time. Sat like a champ the whole way through. I should have some healed photos in a couple weeks aswell. Also on a side side note i started the Final Fantasy half sleeve. Pretty stoked so far. ill post photos when we make more progress, and the same goes for the octopus and umbrelli-fish hal sleeve. Can not wait to get that done! until next time....

It seems when I do one thing, it always comes in waves of it. Like there was a time were I did a lot of girl faces, and now it seems to be hearts, and i think the next wave will be full of sugar skulls! wich im really looking forward to.....
I think its a good thing that happens, because I get in the habit of drawing that particular piece so many times by the end of the wave it becomes so natural. But this one in particular was really different, and easy to play around with. Thanks!

This was probably one of the most fun little tattoos I have done in awhile, I dont know what it is about it, but I love it! Maybe its my passion for tennage mutant ninja turles, and this is like there baby version or something. either way, had tons of fun. would like to do more sea creatures!

This is a sleeve I have been working on for the past few months, and still have a bit more to go on it, but he moved to the east coast for school for awhile, so we have to put it on hold :( but here are some photos of it until then!
Done with tattoo ink and pen on regular lame paper. ran out of water colour paper, but worked out okay I suppose.

Year 2010 is officaly the year of the Jackalope! I came to this conclusion after doing my first tattoo of the year, wich was ofcoarse the jackalope. I also did a really awesome sugar skull with a candle and some roses, wich i should be finishing soon! On top of that I have a bunch of really fun pieces in the work about to be finished, such as Godzilla v.s. Gamera half sleeve, Ocotopus in the clouds spilling out ink rain from his umbrella turning into crazy waves with stuff strewn about, and maybe another cool octopus. Also, I've found a bit of spare time to paint latley, so keep your eyes peeled and check back on the regular for all the new things I have to share this year! I'm absolutley stoked on how this year has started and the anticipation for all the things on the way is killing me. So stay tuned!
