a bunch of stuff happenin!

semi healed photo of a teapot for her grandma. her first tattoo, felt like i was tattooing in a jeep, lots of unexpected twitches haha. really nice girl, tattooing her again soon.

friend of the teapot girl, again, first tattoo. beginning was rough for her, but she chilled out. possibly the skinniest girl ive ever met. thanks francesca!

My friends Chris and April came up from good ol kentucky to get some inkslamz. My good friend Dusty is working on an amazing marvel superhero leg sleeve on Chris. April has had a less than desirable sun on her back for sometime that finally had to go. my second cover up ever, pretty stoked on it.

Hey my name is Nick and this is my first tattoo. Next to my friend zach, nick is the best sitter ive ever tattooed. i put him through all of the hazing for ribs as a first tattoo and he totally surprised me. really stoked on this piece, but so much more to go.

tom petty pinstripe inspired collar rocker, another first tattoo...jeez, theres a re-occuring theme here.

Here's a couple pieces i did on a large session. im particularly excited about the direction im going with these tattoos.

as of late, ive been drawing throughout the night with Dusty. weve been throwing ideas at eachother and doing some collaborative drawings. some awesome stuff is in the works from us as a unit, so stay tuned for more!

I need a lil zzzz zz

This is Tony Biard. He is my best friend and mentor on subjects widely varied. I can only hope to someday grow as old and crude as he is.

Jake posed for a lower back pinup tattoo. Pictures of the piece soon...

My friends stay over alot, as you can see, my living room looks like Auschwitz.

Andy is from Paris, Tennessee. The thing to do there is grow old and become a drunkard. Andy got out, and is in a band. He decided to pay tribute to his hometown with some Hank Williams Jr lyrics as well.

My first and last pinup i far as girls go. I did a male version, of Jake...

My friend Steve.

My friend Bill came over and visited. He showed me some of his new artwork, which I'm really into. He has a very quirky, sick animation/flight of the conchords-esque style. Jake felt compelled to have Bill draw on his arm.

I did a bunch of script this week. The best part about it was that it was on good friends of mine. I'm starting to love script more and more.

Donny tattooed a gnarly biker dude by the name of "Huckleberry." He was super nice for just getting out of prison. This was one of the tattoos he got while incarcerated. He's full of tattoos like this! Craziness.

Here's a start to one of the pieces in an upcoming art show with friends.

more paintings, and jake

working on a coverup of my first rib and script tattoo from about 18months ago. A gnarly black and gray wolves head. i plan on packing some gunmetal gray into it, as well as pink in the tongue and some small, fine lining. We're about 60% finished. Zach is a great sitter.

My 5th draft of Continuance's cover for the upcoming release for Rise records.

2 quick little paintings for a silent auction at a local coffee house.
