There’s no photoshop alterations here...there’s no focus on breast or buttocks to share my art. More and more pages are supporting highly, I mean HIGHLY photoshopped photos of tattoo art. That’s not reality. There are also pages supporting tattoo art that try to generate likes by unnecessarily showing breast and buttocks. Not my cup of tea. Saw this clients piece healed and it looks the same... rich blacks and deep saturation of color. She still needs another week to heal as to not have reflective skin then I’ll share a healed photo. Don’t fall for that other mess. I refuse to fall for the vein acts for likes and comments. I hold my dignity as an artist close to my heart and keep it real for me and my clients sake. It would be a bummer if clients out there, after getting tattooed didn’t feel theirs was up to par with what the artists shared as “their tattoo art”. Obviously tattoos age but there is a difference between fresh, fresh/altered, healed, and 5 plus years old. And as for other upcoming tattoo artists, don’t get fooled by those you look up to if their work is photoshopped. Know what whites look like... KNOW how whites heal, know to look for pores!!! If you don’t see swollen pores and it looks flat as paper well, you know photoshop brush tools were used. Stick to you, what you do and how you do. Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder🙏🏻🖤🖤🖤

I would like to open up about something I find extremely painful and difficult to accept. That is the predatory behavior, sexual assault, and harassment perpetrated by Watson Atkinsun. He preyed upon numerous women who have come forward, sexually violating them from a sacred position of power which is tattooing. This has hit me especially hard as one of those women was a friend and client of mine who was introduced to Off the Map through following me. This was a friend who brought me into her home and trusted me. She trusted that Off the Map was a safe place for the arts. I had thought the reason Dana grew away from me was due to some other life events, and had no idea the horrible nature of what had transpired under my very nose in 2014. When I had left Off the Map tattoo at the turn of 2018 I did so in a Proffesional manner, not mentioning that I had experienced a hostile environment with decision making that I saw as dangerous and unethical, and often neglectful of the safety or well being of my coworkers. I saw over time that the morals that once attracted me to the studio were no more than propaganda targeting and falsely aligning with various alternative social groups that became more and more clear were only for monetary interests. I left because I felt I could no longer trust Gabe To morally represent me, and felt the name I had built was no longer safe tethered to him. Apparently I had no idea exactly how correct I was. I hereby condemn the disgusting actions of the sexual predator Watson Atkinsun, and his knowing enablers. I permanently sever all ties to Off the Map, TattooNow, and the Paradise Tattoo Gathering.

2 Johan's are better than 1.... sometimes you don't always win but as always I gave it my all. Sprained my wrist and pulled my back 😩😢🤒🤕 this is as far as we got.... due to swelling you can't really see the white pattern we are layering over the black. 💀

Come take a trip with me 🏁🔱🔞⚛️

Thankyou Laura 🙏🏻💫
