Thank you so much for your kind words and support (and anger and frustration) with the vandalism of our sign. We have a lot of great friends! ☺👍So for fun this will be our temporary sign while the new one is being made by the incredible @xicmarkx ...thanks man for stepping right up to help. It will take a few months to build the new sign, but will be very worth the wait!! #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #temporarysign #justforfun #dontworrybehappy #therewentourvacationmoney

Today is National Aviation Day! I've been waiting to post this until today to honor our friend and #airforceveteran Kathleen. This #b17flyingfortress was stationed during #ww2 right by the airbase in England she was at 40 years later. It's American base was in her hometown of Harvard Nebraska, so its really special to her! The #sheherazade completed 126 sorties over Nazi Germany! #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #colortattoo #warplane #b17 #b17bomber #b17bomber #airforce #bomber #flyingfortress #groundcrew #usairforce #armyaircorps #worldwar2 #wwiimemorial #wwii #bombertattoo #airplane #airplanetattoo #nationalaviationday #flythefriendlyskies

Here's a #closeup from the #previouspost of the #memorialtattoo on Lynzee. The signature is her brothers and the slight distortion is only in the photo, not the actual tattoo.#crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #musictattoo #musictattoos

19 years ago TODAY I did the tattoo on the right for Renee' on her birthday and TODAY we did this Super Fun new piece!! What a cool thing for me, to see work I did back then still holding up just fine! Thanks @renees_ceramic_cafe for giving me all the room to go wild with your idea, and #happybirthdaytoyou! She was inspired by tattoos from @sebastianbarone #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #powderpigmentsforlife #powderpigments #nationaldrypowder #freehandcolor #seetheresults #colortattoos #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #colortattoo #meltingclock #myrealityisjustdifferentfromyours
