EDIT: OMG I almost forgot to say, THIS WHOLE TRIP started with an Instagram poll! I asked where I should go, you guys picked Iceland over Peru or Greece, and here I am!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sending me here, and for keeping me company through long, bright days and nights. . I came to Iceland solo, because I wanted to be selfish and rent this silly camper van (best idea ever, thanks again Travis), and because I wanted the kind of transformative experience it's sometimes easier to have alone, when you're surrounded by... you. I wasn't disappointed. I'm coming home today happy and refreshed and totally in love. . . . . . #iceland #ísland #takk #skál #solotravel #kansascity #jökulsárlón
I'm pretty flighty, so renting this camper "van" was a great idea. Thanks for the tip, @mrtravisyocum!
Oh my goshhhhhh this is so good for my soul. This is how I recharge, how I get inspiration, how I soak up all the good energy. To everyone who's getting tattooed on the next few months, be prepared to have some magical Iceland vibes find their way into your tattoos. I'm totally in love with this place and this time. #iceland
I'm travelling solo, soaking up the vibe in Iceland, and I gotta say, the Blue Lagoon is not overrated. 💙
This client is a Swahili-speaking, mountain-climbing, forward-thinking badass. Look for more finished work on her in a few weeks, when we finish up with the two pieces that correspond with this one. ❤️ Thank you Macie! You're awesome! . . . . . #tattoo #tattoos #tattooartist #girlswithink #girlswithtattoos #instatattoo #drawing #instadaily #ladytattooer #kansascity #kcmo #igkansascity #vscocam #blackwork #blackworktattoo #me #tattoodesign #instagood #inkstinctsubmission #thebesttattooartists #thebestbngtattooartists #blackworkerssubmission #wtt #wheretheytatt #theartoftattoos #btattooing #TAOT #radtattoos #blxckink @best.of.kc #tattooistartmag
I love my job. Thank you @laceygreve, for letting me splatter ink all over you, and paint you with brushes, and make this pretty iris for you! 🖤🖤🖤 You're the best! . . . . . #tattoo #tattoos #avantgardetattoo #iristattoo #flowertattoo #blacktattoo #kansascity
PROGRESS - We're getting close to being done with Connor's sleeve, adding a layer at a time. Next comes the rest of the flower detail, some darker shading on a few leaves, and some background diagram stuff. You're the best, @theconnore! Can't wait to get you back in my chair! . . . . . #tattoo #chrysanthemumtattoo #blacktattoo
Had the BEST TIME in Belize... I hiked through a jungle, explored a cave with crystalized human skeletons inside, stayed in hostels, ate stuffed fry jacks, got my ass sunburned snorkeling all day, swam with sharks, drank rum out of a coconut, and swam at a place where the Earth was cleaved in two by a hurricane. It was magical. Can't wait to get back to work and bring all this magic with me!
I'm posting this from the first day of vacation, and I'm feeling awfully warm and fuzzy about this tattoo on @jtns2910. I painted the brushstrokes on her body, and the number and size and the way they move represent something important to her. We created it together, which ends up being the case with most tattoos I do. . The top of this tattoo is a little dark and red because we just finished a tiny little section up there... When it's healed it will all be a nice, velvety gray. . You are a beautiful soul, Char, and I'm excited to work with you again! Thank you!! . . . . . #abstracttattoo #brushstroketattoo #ilovemyclients
Still in progress, but I'm having so much fun with Mark's half sleeve. Thanks for letting me get weird, dude. You're the best! . . . . . #skulltattoo #kansascity #hellyeah
