Sorry for the absence, I've been at Burning Man! Now I'm back in my own cozy bed, with my kids napping in the next room, and quietly looking at the few photos I brought home. I couldn't be more grateful for the experience. 🔥😍
YES. Have I mentioned that I've been totally in love with tattooing lately? Like more than usual? Part of it is that I'm getting to build this kind of thing for clients occasionally. Thank you for being such a badass, Danielle! ❤️ Hand painted onto the body with a sumi-e brush and tattoo ink, and then tattooed on.
I took my boys to the tiny town of Lathrop, MO to see the eclipse at 100%, but clouds swept in and ruined totality. Except... without the eclipse itself to focus on, I was sort of overwhelmed by how dark and quiet and suddenly nighttime the whole thing was. The birds with chirping and crickets started singing and it got cool... And two minutes later it was real life again.
Most days I do tattoos. Some days I do this?
Of course this is how I vacation. :) Drawing on the dock, surrounded by friends floating on rafts, friends drinking morning champagne, friends playing guitars upstairs in the house. There's a nice breeze, and I think it's about time to put away the sketchbook and sit in a giant pink flamingo and have some champagne of my own. Life is... pretty good.
Loved tattooing this little juniper sprig to represent my friend's daughter, Junie. Thank you, @chelseahilton! Mmmwah!
Feel like I'm on a roll. :) Ian Curtis of Joy Division, on my awesome client David. Can't wait to work on our next collaboration, dude!
This is not even close to finished, but it's just so much damn fun! Thank you so much, @littlebirdlou!
While you all were out getting silly Friday night, Casey and I were making this sweet Private Benjamin tattoo! @caseymccauley, you're the absolute best. Can't wait to hang out again!
I got to do this fun flaming heart today on one of my very favorite people. Thanks so much, @jasonaaron!
