Here we have a Native girl tattoo on my friend Kareena. This particular native girl tattoo was based on a Sailor Jerry design she had brought in. I’ve always been enjoyed flash like this Native Girl tattoo, they have a real folk art quality to them, and can be a reminder of who once roamed […]

Here we have the Sea Wolf tattooed on my dear friend, Rod. I originally painted the Sea Wolf last fall, when first dreaming up the idea of the company. I then hung it above my station, it sort of served as the carrot for the mule during this whole process. The name, Sea Wolf Tattoo […]
The Sea Wolf Tattoo Company opening at 11am, Saturday the 12th of May! That’s right folks, after a long and arduous journey, we have finally completed this magnificent specimen of a Tattoo Parlor. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the Sea Wolf Tattoo Company, it has a real Americana Museum meets Grandma’s kitchen […]
Here we have a mermaid tattooed on Kaitlyn’s forearm. I could do one of these a day and be a very happy camper. Kaitlyn has a good eye for tattoos, and I’m very thankful that she picked me to put this on her. Thanks for looking.
I sure do like tattooing ladies like this one on Nick. He asked for an evil pin up, in which I’m not too keen on doing much of, at least not the gory zombie stuff, which can be a bit of a bore if you ask me. I’m glad he went for this, which seems […]

Cory paints some amazing […]
Here we have a peacock tattooed on Christy. I loosely referenced a peacock from Sailor Jerry for this, but also found a cool floral pattern on an old mexican dress, which was a style Christy wanted integrated into her tattoo. I think it worked out well, and I’m very happy with the outcome. Thanks for […]
I was lucky enough to do this fun swallow tattoo on Mariah. These are such timeless tattoos, I very much enjoy doing them. This time I gave it a little different approach and didn’t go with the classic simple swallow, but rather a more stylized version. Mariah sat like a champ through the whole thing […]
Wow it’s been busy lately, hence me not posting in a month. Here we have a phonograph tattooed on Justin. This was a lot of fun to do, we will be continuing throughout his whole are with a similar theme and color layout. Should look real nice in the end. Thanks for looking.
Here we have a wolf head tattooed on Austin. He also has the black wolf head tattooed on his other arm. What a weird day it was, I had 2 different wolf tattoos, and while I was out back on a break, a large husky, strangely resembling a wolf, walked right up to me. He […]
