Hey thanks for being a stand up human and leaving me a note... Oh wait no note, go figure another piece of shit that has no respect for other people's property. Thanks for making my morning 👍

Something a little different from last weekend. Thanks for looking. #dinosaurskull #triceratops #blackandgrey #dotwork #chicago #chicagotattooer

I am forever grateful to @patrickcornolo - Both Pat and I apprenticed under Mad Jack (Jack is in the first photo on the left). Patrick not only took on a big bulk of my apprenticeship but has been like family to me for these past 20 yrs. I first met Pat in 1996 when he came to South Dakota for the Sturgis motorcycle Rally. I remember he kept asking me "are you SURE you want to come to Chicago? Jack can be a little rough." He definitely wasn't kidding! I have been highly influenced by Patrick's love and dedication to our craft. Thank you Pat for always being there for me, I truly appreciate it🙏 The first photo is of Jack, Danise Wolfe, and Patrick. Not sure where this photo was taken but it's courtesy of @elsi1107 thanks Danise! The second photo is my favorite sticker that Pat did while we were at Body Basics. Pat has always pushed himself to perfect his style and this sticker definitely shows how far ahead of his time he was. He's always been very clever with his layout and was doing something Chicago hadnt seen yet. Bold bright tattoos that over-emphasized the subjects features making not only a strong design but unique to chicago tattooing. Pat is a big part of contemporary Chicago tattoo history and his style is inimitable. Photo three is Pat hanging with my daughter Beatrice at the Field Museum and the last photo is where you can find him. Pat and his wife @kellycorn own @speakeasytat and you should definitely give them a follow if you don't already. I love you guys 💜 #chicagotattoohistory #bodybasics #chicago #chicagotattooer #chicagotattooers

Spotted these yesterday at the grocery store. The phoenix head on the left was done by Cliff Raven. He didn't have money for the whole body. The one one the right was done on two separate occasions. The cross was done by Oakland Johnny and the roses were added after he got back from Vietnam by Lyle Tuttle. Best part about his story was he claimed a hooker friend played for the roses! @vintage_tattoos #vintagetattoo #vintagetattoos #cliffraven #lyletuttle #tattoohistory #chicago #chicagotattoohistory

Two more that will accompany the panther card for a group of rad guys. I really dig painting these postcards and appreciate everyone that has bought one over the years. So the next five people that comment "I'll take one" I'll send ya one for free on my dime. Celebrating 20yrs of tattooing this July. More free shit to come. #traditionalflash #postcard #postcardart #chicago #chicagotattooer
