Yer Mum.

Here's a freshly finished Oni with Snake and Crysanthemums. I was particularly excited about the fact that I was allowed to put crazy, googley eyes in- Most people aren't into them for some reason. I think they were a wise decision. The image is a simple representation of life and death, and the squiglley, venomous line between the two. In other words, It just looks cool:)

Real Men Wear Flowers

Casey wanted a nice tattoo as a dedication to his Daughter- something feminine enough to represent her, but simple enough to make a good tattoo. Nothing too deep or contrived. In these cases, flowers never fail, and a Lotus was the perfect pick! Really great and beautiful things pop up in the most seemingly unlikely environments sometimes.

The Key to Life

I just found a bunch of photos that I had forgotten about, and in that bunch were these two keys- both done on the same day, both on equally excellent fellows named Chris. Coincidence?

Shark Week!

Griffin takes Shark Week very seriously. This time around he opted to commemorate the event with a nice little classic-style tattoo. Okay, so MAYBE it was just a coincidence that he happened to get this during said television event, but I'm not so sure... What I am sure about is Griffin's good sense of humor- If you look closely, you'll notice the shark has one gold tooth!
