 Jeff has always picked nice tattoos, but his latest addition is my favorite so far! He and I have gotten to the point where he really gives me room to run with his ideas. Mint green skull with magenta teeth? No problem! He fully trusts my imagination, and I feel like it has paid off in skin! Unending gratitude, my friend!

Steve Finished His Sleeve!

In mid-October, 2010 we began tattooing this sleeve on a monthly basis, and were making great progress. Then- BAM!- Steve got transferred to Michigan by his job. So, after a three month hiatus, he made the journey back to our fine establishment and did what all Men must eventually do- he finished what he started! Well done! Please pardon the swelling.....

Sagent's Coming Back!

It's about that time again! This coming weekend Sagent Staygold will be back in town to do some serious tattooing. Be sure to get ahold of him ahead of time if you'd like some work done- his spots book up pretty fast.
We're looking forward to the visit, as always!

The Arsenal

I recently had the pleasure of corresponding with, and purchasing some fine hand-built tattoo machines from, the Great Ernie Carafa. Having owned (and tattooed with) one of his frames already, this was really exciting for me. Shown here are three examples of his awesome machine heads- from left to right: the Paul Rogers V-frame, the Cap Coleman 1930 reproduction, and the Teacup frame, with a sideplate by Mike Pike. These will all be in my daily line-up. Anyone who is serious about tattooing should consider one of Ernie's frames in theirs as well!
