The above tattoo is a design from Todd Noble's new book "The Look of Love". I really enjoyed tattooing it and I took a few artistic liberties with the face. If you are interested in getting any of the 66 ladies from this book or any other flash I have here at the shop, please let me know.
It seems that there is a negative stigma around getting flash (a painted design intended to be tattooed) off of a tattoo shop wall, but the reality is you'll have a nicer, more original tattoo with flash than you would with any google search or pinterest image. Avoid the current trends and get classic, timeless designs whether they are custom or flash. You'll thank yourself in 10 years.
Last week, I had the pleasure of guesting at Monument Tattoos in Tallahassee, FL, owned by my good friend and mentor, Craig Beasley. I always have a great time there and consider it to be my home away from home. Thank you to everyone who got tattooed and to all of my friends, Heidi Beasley, Cody Klein, Matt Manning, Chris Villiers for all of your hospitality.
Here are a couple tattoos from the trip.
I'm now back in SLO, feeling inspired and excited start new projects.
As always, thanks for looking.
