SFO Tattoo Convention.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by laughinghyena

Once again I am lucky enough to be working at the SFO Tattoo Convention this year! This weekend from the 26th -28th. If you’re in the area please take the time to check this out. Some of the best tattooers in the world will be in attendance tattooing, selling prints, and flash, and machines. Some will even be open to take walk ups! Do yourself a favor and swing by the convention. All the info is on the flyer I’m posting.

Twin Peaks.

If you know me at all chances are you know that I am, and have been for a long time, unhealthily obsessed with Twin Peaks.

Hence :

 

That’s my left hand after my buddy Jason June brutalized my finger sides.

I Painted a TP pork chop sheet and did a few tattoos based on the show and since then, I’ve gotten to do more and more Twin Peaks tattoos. I love it. I never get tired of these or trying to make new ones. Here’s a bunch from the past year or so. Some are real obvious, some are a bit more subtle, but I had a great time with all of them, and would love to do more. Hope you enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roses.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by laughinghyena

For the past few years I’ve been working on drawing roses increasingly weirder, but still based on real roses. More and more deconstructed, kind of like how I treated letters when I was a graffiti writer. Leave essential parts intact, while abstracting the image as a whole. I don’t know if I’m going anywhere with this, and I’m certainly not saying I’m doing some super original new dance or anything, I mean I’ve seen plenty of people do angular roses, but I’m trying to make something happen with these that feels like mine. Here’s a few examples. Again, in no particular order of when they were done, plus some process shots of doing one of these on a good friend, and fellow tattooer, Noah Moore’s head. Hope you enjoy.

Sleeve

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by laughinghyena

Been working on a sleeve on a client for about five months of trips to Three Kings in Brooklyn. Was pretty happy with the out come. I’d love to get healed flicks of this at some point.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Weirdo Ouroboros

This was a fun one. Strange Ouroboros type thing. Bummer that I couldn’t get any real clean pics.

Buncha Tattoos.

Another grouping of tattoos from the past year in no particular order. Hope you enjoy.

 

 

Funny one I got to do. Weird version of a battle royal. I had a great time with this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one was a fucking blast for me. She asked for a treasure chest on her hand, but it just never looked right when I was drawing it, so we went with this.

 

 

 

 

I think I just love tattooing hands. Especially when I’m allowed to bring that shit down on the fingers and crap.

Filler on a great client.

More filler on the same guy. The tattoos around the little cross are not mine.

 

 

Process of a Painting

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by laughinghyena

Been spending a lot of time visiting some of my favorite places in New England lately and it’s been influencing things I’m doing. I hope for the better.

This painting is the result of that influence. Not that it’s anything truly special or different, but I was trying to get a specific feeling out of it. No Prints.
