Patience - Tattoowise
So I went to visit my cousin, who is an amazing tattoo artist, the other day. Imagine my surprise when I walk in his studio and find him tattooing on himself. Apparently he needed a daily reminder to be patient!

i have to wait a couple more weeks for color, but i'm so thrilled with how this turned out. Lexi at Laughing Buddha turned my crappy little sketch into an amazing work of art and she did an absolutely flawless job on the outlines. I'll blog sometime soon about what this whole "patience" thing means to me and the specific plants represented.
Three random tattoo ideas
I met these two in the park. He was tattoing her, and she was drunk. They let me take their picture. He was using a ball point pen and a needle.
This peice was inspired by the Mark Ryden "St Barbie" piece. She didnt want an exact portrait replica she wanted it a little more illustrative. and with some changes that were personal to her. She flew all the way from California to West Palm just to come see me. It was really a fun tattoo and she sat like a champ for me we knocked this bad boy out in about 5 or 6 hours.
