Twin Peaks.

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

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.

Tattoos.

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

Here’s a bunch more tattoos I’ve done over the past year, in no order.

I’m not re-inventiong any wheels here, but I’ve been trying to work on water and clouds so they look kind of like they do in my head when I think of maritime imagery. I feel like it finally started to work on this one.

 

Finally got to do this one from my flash in an area that I could get a semi decent picture of. Lovecraft influences abound.

This was a different one for me, but I had a great time with it.

I got a fun idea for a page of flash, and I’m going to do more along the lines of this in the next month or two. Hope you enjoy these pics of the different stages of the sheet. No prints. But the original was sold to my buddy, Xam.
