I have been trying my damnedest to keep most of my newer my artwork secret lately, that way whenever I come out with my sketchbook for publication, all my followers on Tumblr, Facebook or whatever haven’t already seen or tattooed everything in the book already.
However, I scanned in the first real piece of flash for the book earlier and thought I would share: I can’t wait to paint this piece later today.
I have been tattooing for long enough now for me to have my own set of tattoo aftercare instructions and here they are. Honestly, I can’t believe I am still awake at 7 AM working so hard on sheets of paper I am going to hand out to clients to be casually stuffed into purses, pockets and glove compartments all across the county, but I do it for the love of the art.
I just designed this new flyer to advertise for the tattoos shop today. It’s been an very relaxed afternoon at the tattoo shop as we are all planning on heading out to the Montgomery County Fair after work and we are counting down the hours.
Anyhow I’m about to take my 2-wheeled death cycle to Kinkos to get these printed so I can have them this evening, while I am gorging myself with fair food and risking life and limb on carnival rides. Hope I survive so that I may continue to blog..

My new business cards finally came in today. I am super excited about how they came out, especially since they feature my own original artwork and I designed them. I can’t wait to start handing them out and I really feel as though they are an accurate representation of the tattoo work I do, clean and professional.
I figured that by my 50th post I would have already designed a header for this site, however, how ironic that my 50th post would be about a header that I designed for this blog.
I had started this site randomly one day last June and have been running it by the seat of my pants until I recently decided that I needed to start writing more. I am still shocked and honored that I have had almost 4,000 views, and I wanted to personally thank everybody who has read my blog. Please bookmark the site, check out my tattoo work and feel free to contact me about questions you have about a tattoo or piercing at X2 Tattoos, Capitol Heights, 301-333-1236.
This is the original header I decided not to use because it was too big, I will find a use for it though. If anyone would like some graphics designed or any photo editing work done, please contact me, I need work for my portfolio.
Winter is right around the corner, unfortunately. And every tattoo artist knows what happens in the winter… absolutely nothing.
It’s the “dry season” for tattooing and in resolve not be forced to get a part-time job selling my semen to lesbian couples wishing pregnancy, I have been hitting the street old-school DIY punk fashion.
I’m not gonna starve this winter, nope, not me. I made thousands of flyers and plan on hitting the streets of this beautiful district and spreading the news of good tattoo work.
I spent a good six hours Thursday out in the streets of DC with my friend passing out business cards, flyers and stickers. We had a ton of fun, met a ton of cool people and actually made some appointments to do some awesome pieces that I have been dying to do.
That being said I am now taking appointment for the winter season and I do all my larger portfolio tattoos during the winter at a discounted price, especially for my friends, local artists, musicians, and people I just think are over-all cool people (this is all subject to what I think haha).
If you’d like to make an appointment to get a tattoo, please give me a call at 240-498-6527.
This is the mock design for my newest set of business cards. What do you guys think?
They’ll be available to grab in a few days so get them before I start with the new design.
