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.

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.
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.
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.
