These assumptions, I guess, could be due to our appearance and maybe your preferred shops vibe, or the nastalgic fantasy of the type of craftsmen/craftswomen of yester year and in a time when the industry was dominated by the hardest of men and or the occaisional female artist whom most likely did indeed lead crazy life styles, and in most cases ve...

Posted by mike on January 24, 2018 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (0)

  I have owned my Ipad Pro for a little under a year now and am impressed with its capabilities and with some helpful apps like Pro Create, streamlining the menatonous task of bring a clients concept to fruition has become less chore like. The Ipad has come along way since I purchased iPAD2 years back and quickly abandoned due to lack of practical applicabilities for a tattoo artist, but the pro is definitely an asset and has redeemed itself with me. A Necessary tool for busy artist, no ...

Episode 1: Oh my God, He's dying

 This didn't happen to me, but I was there when it did, heheheh.

conveying tattoo design to your artist

Posted by mike on December 5, 2011 at 8:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Have you ever tried to guess what somone is thinking. Well thats what its like for your artist when a client is giving a vague description of their idea for their next tattoo.specifically when the description includes " i want it to look beautiful" or "I want it to pop", beauty is a matter of opinion or is in the eyes of the beholder. in other words, one persons idea of what is beautiful or visually appealling can and will vary from one person to the next.

Tattoo Design Choice

Posted by mike on April 1, 2010 at 1:26 AM Comments comments (1)

 The best thing you can do is ask yourself why you want a particular design. The more thought that goes into a tattoo design, The less likely you are to regret it later in life or not so later. Do not get one on impulse, it is a lot more permanent than you think, even with painful laser removal. Also, not all ideas or art work will make a good tattoo. run your idea or art work by the tattoo artist to head off any disappointment if your tattoo idea isn't workable.
