Hi. Due to a minor setback, I've had to reschedule a bit for the past two weeks. I'll be in the shop and available for consultations beginning February 1st. Stop in and help me catch up in early-mid March. It's my non-dominant arm, so I can still draw and design. Thanks for the support. #langdaleart #baltimoreavetattoo #phillytattooartist #xray #titanium

The 'tattoo' on the left started out as a cross, then a vine, then 2 attempts at a rose. My coverup is the 5th attempt at making this right. This was my client's only tattoo. It's amazing to me how there are so many "artists" less interested in doing a good job and more interested in stealing people's money. I don't know how someone tried to cover a dark green and black vine with a pink rose with no outlines. Moral of the story: research your artist before you let them touch you. It's permanent.

Honored by @makoto_horimatsu for allowing me to share my tattoo of one of his awesome samurai frog sketches. #samurai #frogtattoo #langdaleart #baltimoreavetattoo

Alphonse Mucha has always been a huge inspiration to my art. Glad I was able to start this piece, which includes my rendition of one of his girls. The rest is designed by me. More colors to come next time. #mucha #alphonsemucha #artnouveau #muchatattoo #artnouveautattoo #lineart #blackclawneedle #langdaleart #baltimoreavetattoo #floraltattoo #flowers #artdeco #hatchbackirons

When you get a "realistic" style tattoo done with minimal outlines, if done incorrectly, after a certain number of years you are left with a blurry and blobby mess with no detail. Black outlines help hold the shapes of an image in place and, in my opinion, withstand the test of time much more effectively. Here is a before and after of a bird I rescued today.

Matching wife/husband Awen symbol tattoos. "The three rays are said to represent the harmony of opposites in the universe. For example, the two outer rays representing male and female energy and the central ray the balance between them. It also represents the three domains of earth, sky and sea; mind, body and spirit." The symbol is interpreted differently around the internet, but this was the definition my clients were going with.
