I did this sweet little jammer on my friend Maddie a few months ago but forgot to put up a picture. So here it is, straight from the sketchbook to the skin.
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.
Hey guys, I just wanted to give a quick update and let everyone know that I will no longer be working at X2 Ink in Germantown, however clients can still book appointments by giving me a call or text at 240.442.2868 or sending me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, describing in detail the tattoo you would like to get, the location and the size you would like to get it. Any photo references and/or links are greatly appreciated.
I am definitely excited at the opportunity to take a short break from the everyday grind of working in a street shop and work on my flash sheets, sketchbook, paintings, music and photography, but I am still on the hunt for another cool custom shop to work in 3 or 4 days a week. I will definitely keep everybody posted on where I will be working from in the near future, but PLEASE subscribe to my blog by entering your email in the lower right side of my blog.
In the meantime, these are a few tattoos that I have done in the past week at X2 Ink:
One of my easier New Year’s resolutions this year was to do at least one sketch a day in my sketchbook and unfortunately that’s the only resolution I haven’t been keeping.
However today I had a few free hours to sit down and actually focus on drawing and I came up with a few sketches I was half-satisfied with. The traditional eye I colored with my girlfriend’s Tombo markers and this was my first time using them, but I really liked them.
The other tattoo I drew needs no explanation at all, I think it kinda speaks for itself, but I would love to do either one of these as a tattoo and would do them at a discount price.
