Gorilla Tattoo!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

The gorilla, largest of all primates, inhabits the forests of central Africa. The DNA of the gorilla is highly similar to that of a human, and are considered to be the closest relatives to humans next to chimpanzees. The name gorilla comes from the greek word “Gorillai” meaning tribe of hairy women. The gorilla is a […]

Tyrannosaurus Rex Tattoo

Monday, April 14th, 2014

The Tyrannosaurus Rex, first part meaning “tyrant lizard” in Greek, and Rex translated to “king” in latin, was one of the largest land carnivores of all time. Being the most popular of all dinosaurs, it’s no surprise that I have had so many opportunities to tattoo the Tyrannosaurus Rex. I am so grateful to do these, […]

White Wolf Tattoo

Monday, February 24th, 2014

I had the pleasure of doing this wolf tattoo on Mimi’s knee. Every year I give her a tattoo for her birthday, so this year she decided to endure the kneecap. Apparently it wasn’t as horrible as she thought, which is good. This wolf tattoo was lots of fun, I always end up doing either […]

Valkyrie Tattoo

Monday, February 17th, 2014

In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja “chooser of the slain”) is one of a host of female figures who decide which soldiers die in battle and which live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle (the other half go to the goddess Freyja’s afterlife field Folkvangr), the valkyries bring their […]

Sailor Jerry’s Tiger vs Snake Tattoo

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Got to do this Sailor Jerry version of the Tiger vs Snake tattoo on my pal Riley. Riley is a filmmaker for the House of 1817, a professional snowboarding film crew. He is a super savvy dude when it comes to tattooing, which is refreshing to find in a client, allowing me to flex a bit […]

Game of Thrones Tattoo

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Yes! Game of Thrones is one of the greatest things ever, so I was quite pumped to do this tattoo. Valar Dohaeris means “all men must serve” in High Valyrian, and is a traditonal response to the greeting Valar Morghulis “all men must die”. If you haven’t heard of it, Game of Thrones is a […]

Kraken tattoo

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

Below the thunders of the upper deep; Far far beneath in the abysmal sea, His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee About his shadowy sides; above him swell Huge sponges of millennial growth and height; And far away into the sickly light, From many a wondrous grot and secret cell Unnumber’d […]

Black Bear Tattoo!

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

I really hope this is the start of a new trend in my tattooing: the black bear tattoo! I got to do this black bear tattoo on my awesome client Alex. Alex and his brother are exemplary tattoo collectors. They don’t fart around. They drive out here from Wisconsin, and get as much work as […]

Lady Head Tattoos!

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Well here is another example of one of my favorite kinds of tattoos: Lady heads. If I could tattoo one of these a day I would not get sick of doing them. This lady was inspired by some old 1920’s era photographs I found. Her headpiece reminds me of something that could be a mixture […]

Halloween Tattoos!

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Happy belated Halloween! I meant to post this Halloween tattoo on the 31st, but life happened and I forgot. This tattoo is on Brooke, who is a very awesome person from Duluth. She wanted two tattoos for her favorite holidays, Christmas and Halloween. The Halloween idea was originally going to be a haunted mansion she […]
