Sol eyed salmon half sleeve

This was a really fun and challenging project. This young man was from Alaska and a fisherman. He wanted a sok eyed salmon, but he wanted it to be how they look when they are in the ocean, Which is this iridescent look. Now this is hard to do in the first place but then to translate that look into a traditional Japanese style tattoo was another challenge. I wasn't sure until I put the last color in it if it had worked out or not. So here it is. Let me know what you think.

A little free hand action

When I initially started this I had a Nicely drawn out golden eagle. But it just wasn't fitting in his arm right. I tried to re draw it a little, still not sitting right in his arm. So at last I just broke out the brush pens and was like "here we go!" it was a little sketchy before we started. But I think he could see where I was going with it. It ended up being a fun tattoo. I always live doing the feet in birds. Tends to be my favorite part.

here's a forearm dragon 1/2 sleeve ive been working on for a little bit. started as a stand alone piece, and ended up adding the rest on. rally happy with this, i feel it's the best dragon i have done as of yet.


every friday i do $50.00 old flash tattoos, no appointments just walk in and get a fun tattoo! please remember i literally do not make any money on these, so tipping is of great thanks!
 a couple paintings i did this week. it's winter time which always means it's slow for us tattooers. but just so you know it's a great time to get tattooed, don't have to worry about the sun, or swimming. just get tattooed and forget about it. anyway, so in these couple months i tend to be productive on painting. so here ya have it, this weeks paintings.
