I was inspired to do a bunch of water color paintings after long time friend and legendary tattoo artist Lil D came to my private studio from Portland to work for a few days.. It was awesome, we both set up and tattooed for three days like total madmen!! We worked from 12:00 in the afternoon until 2:30 in the morning telling tales of tattooing in Oakland from 20 years ago, trust me back in those days all kinds of crazy shit happened in tattoo studios including full blown fist fights, being tipped the most unusual shit, (once i was tipped a real human skull in a paper bag with a gun and bullets in it!!) and tons of other wacky tales to crazy to mention.. Studios these days are MUCH tamer and WAY more safe than they were back then.. Tattoo artists these days really missed the real experience of being a complete outcasts and rebel's with no desire to be part of normal society.. Getting a tattoo back then set you apart from everyone else.. Now tattoos are pretty much the norm and a true rebel has no need to go into such a commercial establishment.... Im just glad i got to have the true tattoo experience, that 90% of tattooers today missed out on.... Although i love tattooing more today than ever, i do believe that days like those will never be relived by modern day tattoo artists..

Here is a pencil portrait sketch for a tattoo i am doing in the next week.. I generally like to do a study before actually applying the tattoo, to prepare myself.. They usually are a hit with the people im doing the portraits on..

I have been doing lots of skull tattoos lately which is,as cool as it gets as far as I'm concerned.. If it was not for drawing skulls I probably would have never got into tattooing at all... Here is a rough sketch for Todd..

I did this on my buddy Evan.. He is very clear about what he wants and always brings lots of reference materials.. This tattoo represents his concept of time and this tattoo took a few minutes!! We have one more sitting to tighten this piece up..

This client wanted a tree that looked like it was painted on in this certain style, I was very pleased with the way this tattoo turned out... It was done in the center of her lower back.

Diana and her friend wanted matching tattoo's, "Two peas in a pod!"

zombie horse tattoo sketch for my buddy Kai...
Cool and fun sketch for a concept of time as per my buddy Evan, requested... I dig it when people have a very clear image in their head of exactly what they want... Makes drawing for them soooo much more enjoyable and easy!!

Meet my new puppy Izzard!! She is the swwwwweeeeetest little Japanese chin.. Me and Danica rescued her.. She was abused very badly and suffered a broken back and her eyeball was cut in half.. Not sure why anyone would abuse an animal but im convinced that some people are sick in the head and need a severe ass beating.. I am quite the animal activist these days and will not hesitate to stand up for any animal being abused..
