I did this off my flash today.  We got rid of the color and thanked owen jensen.

leather mail

i collect early american postcards. when christmas rolls around, think of me when you’re flipping through the antique store or local swap meet when you see a stack of these affordable bits of american history. i particularly enjoy the leather ones that were made only for a brief time in the early 1900’s and most of them donning themselves with the artwork of w.s. heal. this is the first one i’ve seen that wasn’t in the shape of a rectangle.

did this little bud on my friend, jason, while sitting in at taylor street tattoo in chicago, illinois. i was happy to be tattooing this on his arm where it will be seen. this little bud really adds to his collection of odds and ends. thanks jason.

chicago needs extra padding

i took this photo while stuck in traffic in the city on my way back to taylor street tattoo. i have a love/hate relationship with cities, but i don’t mind visiting as long as i know i can leave at some point. people piled on top of one another and constant deconstruction make me somewhat uneasy. this building is a prettiest thing i’ve seen in chicago in quite some time.

i did these three flowers on kat while guesting at TAYLOR STREET TATTOO a few weeks back. she picked it out of my flash which is always fun. i like how the girl head is done a little differently than you normally see on a tattoo. i’m glad we kept the hair huge. i am really happy with this tattoo and how unique it turned out.

the sheet is all referenced from tattoo/flash maker, owen jensen. perfect for tattooing. the other one was done the same night, it’s a drawing of what is now known as the pre-reaper. both are 12 inches by 16 inches.
