Here is a healed full sleeve that I completed over the last several years. The majority of the figures were referenced from a painting by Dan Troiani. (Swipe to see the reference and more photos of the sleeve). I wish that I had the education, experience, and time to be able to compose my own images with period correct costuming for historical illustrative tattoos such as this one. I hold myself to a high standard to produce creative original works that challenge me and further my understanding of the tattoo medium and what is possible/ responsible to do within the constraints of tattooing. So with that said, when doing this type of historical tattoo, I’ve found that paintings like this one by Dan Troiani, make a wonderful source. I did buy Mr. Troiani’s book that offered a better quality image than what is on the web. I hope that he would enjoy seeing my adaptation- although he would point out that George Washington was not actually present at the battle of Cowpens- that was an artistic decision made by my wonderful client Jesse. I’ll end by saying thank you to Jesse for trusting me with this project, your dedication to your tattoo is inspiring and I’m looking forward to your next sleeve. #americanrevolution #cowpens #washington #dantroiani #illustrativetattoo #inkanddaggertattoo #atlantatattoo #atlantatattooartists

Just another day at the office...

Continued progress is being made on @great.jupiter.woman’s torso project.

Happy New Year! I’ve been busy planning my travel itinerary for 2018 and I have managed to get a few dates and locations confirmed. These are some of the places you’ll find me this year, I’ll add a few more soon!

Rococo influenced scrollwork done at @inkanddaggertattoo today. That’s it for me for a few days. Time to hunker down with some Netflix. Happy holidays y’all.

More progress on @great.jupiter.woman today at @inkanddaggertattoo. I’m very to lucky to have clients that are this dedicated. Thanks Crystal!

@explorertattoo is heading to St. Louis! Immediately following the inaugural Tattoo the Lou convention (which I’m also currently booking) Explorer Tattoo Conference is bringing me back as a presenter. This is for tattooers of any experience level who are searching for the next level in their career. If you’re curious, just ask the previous attendees, many of which are highlighted and celebrated over at @explorertattoo. Don’t take my word for it, find someone you know from the last two conferences and send them a DM. If you’re ready to secure your spot, or just want more info, head to explorertattoo.com #explorertattooconference

A snail and a fiddlehead fern I made yesterday for @straightedge.tattoo. This was a fun and challenging design to work on. Did you know that fiddleheads are considered a delicious delicacy? Well... so are snails for that matter. @inkanddaggertattoo is still accepting inquiries for guest artists and resident artists. See my earlier post for more details.
