Real Big Fish.

Here's a Koi tattoo that was actually done over six months ago. I was really stoked to finally get a photo, and can't wait to keep working on it. I see a Dragon in the near future.....hmmmmmmm.......

Devils and Dimmons...

... that's how the diabolical Biz Markie says it. Here are a couple of different ways to approach devils and/or demons in tattooing. The first is a Japanese-style Oni in black and grey on an inner-arm- just finished today! The next is part of a much bigger "life and death" sleeve, which is still in the works, and will feature big roses and a snake as well. Keep an eye out for the finished product!

Baby Noa!!!

My daughter, Noa Belle, was just born October 18th, and I couldn't be happier! She's just awesome! Not only that, but I have a great Wife, family, and friends all around to top it off! Thanks to everyone for all of the love and support in these past few weeks.  I am back to work now, and my new hours are as follows: Monday-Wednesday 2-10pm, Saturday 2-10pm, and Sunday Noon-5pm. Here's a flick of little Noa for those who haven't met her yet.....

Shark Tattoos are cool!

Here's a Shark that I tattooed on Chris. I'd like to take it one step further next time and do a Sharkticorn. Not many people know this, but they were once the mystic defenders of the secrets of Lightning Magic!

Tyler's in town!

Our good buddy Tyler Borich will be in town for the next two weeks doing sweet tattoos. If you'd like one of his fine works of tattoo craftsmanship to wear as your own, give the shop a call or, better yet, stop by and see him! He is filling in for Nick B., who is taking a vacation- so, Bon Voyage, Nick!

Simple aint always easy...

So what, another classic style diamond tattoo, right? Keepin' it clean on the stomache isn't so easy, though-and props to the guy who sat for it, too! On another note, peace to our friend Scavenger Brandon- We're all glad you're still alive, buddy!

What I Did on my Summer Vacation...

  I had an awesome time in Ft.Wayne this past week. Did a few tattoos, and got to skate a bunch at Lawton Park with Tony Hawk. Okay, maybe it wasn't Tony Hawk. Thanks to Nick, Josh, Matt, and, of course, Cobra Kenny at Cardinal for being awesome dudes! Thanks to James and Chad for helping me find awesome food and being good buds! Thanks to my nephew Cole and his buddy Andrew for good times! Here are a couple of flics- one of Wally's Indian Lady tattoo, and one of Andrew's first session on a half-sleeve. Peace!

Bringin' the Secret Stash to Fort Wayne!

 As mentioned before, I'll be tattooing in Ft.Wayne, Indiana at Cardinal Tattoo August 26-28. I still have a lot of time available, especially on Thursday and Friday, so to promote my trip I'll be bringing along a big book of Owen Jensen flash that not many people have seen, and some copies of really rare Sailor Jerry acetates that I know nobody has, along with some other classic stuff like Ed Hardy and Doc King. I'll be happy to do medium size traditional tattoos directly from, or inspired by these collections for right around a hundred bucks- so get it while you can! As examples, here are a couple of pics- one is a really weird tiger from the Sailor Jerry acetates on my friend Mike Deye, and the other is a black and grey version of a Doc King sparrow. To contact me, call 513-841-2653, or email at, or at Cardinal Tattoo 1509 Spy Run ave. Fort Wayne, Indiana- 260-426-1509 on the 26-28th. Thanks!
