This little #gnometattoo has been in one of my #photoalbums for about 18 years now, and I just got to add some cool environment around it! Thanks Niels Juhr for stopping by on your cross-country travels for a nice surprise visit...so glad I had some time! #welovevisitors #stoponby #wedlovetoseeya #justpassinthrough #roadtrip #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #colortattoo #majicmushrooms #majicmushroom #mushrooms #mushroom #mushroomtattoo #mushroomtattoos #gnome #gnomes

Big #coveruptattoo project today by Steve! I love doing water and these #fingerwaves and #lotusbloom sure did the trick. Thanks Hanna for letting me run with this one. #crossroadstattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #coverup #tattooiowacity #tattooiowa #tattoocoralville #lotustattoo #purplelotus #colortattoo #ilovewater

I'm sure you've heard the old expression, "When pigs fly I'll...". Well,now you can say you've seen a hog flying on a Hog tattoo!

What's your favorite brew? Here's one for all you #beerlovers out there! Bob got a healed photo today of these #hops he did a few weeks ago.

Some #memorialtattoos are emotionally much harder to do than others! This one's for a 16yr. old son born with a #badheart. His case was so unique and his heart so different that it became a case study and was regularly reported on in medical journals. #walkamileintheirshoes #memorialtattoo #deadpooltattoo #deadpooltattoos #deadpool #captainamerica #captamerica #captainamericatattoo #captainamericatatt #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #colortattoos #colortattoo

Another fun one on our buddy Matt. The meanings and reasons behind people's tattoos are always diverse and interesting. Sometimes obvious, sometimes cryptic,and sometimes a little of both! (SO WIERD...I CANNOT get this post to share over to Facebook...WHY???) #yestherearetwopathsyoucangoby #butinthelongrun #theresstilltimetochangetheroadyoureon #whichwaytogo #forkintheroad #standingatthecrossroads #compasstattoo #compasstattoos #truenorth #magneticnorth #crossroadstattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #colortattoo #colortattoos

Sometimes what may look like a simple design,without any fancy frills or tricks,turns out to be something with a story behind it that's very deep and truly profound. I feel so honored to be able to be a small part in a person's life story."Good medicine" on both sides of the tattoo machine!!

Just got some healed photos of this cool stuff on our friend Bobby Bryant. You can find his arm in an older post, and we recently added the shoulder blade scene around the #4leafclover to make it all one big piece.

One of the coolest things about being in business for 20 years is we have such a great following of people we call friends...some that we've known for a long time now! I did the #burninghearttattoo back in '98 or so, and just tuned it up and added the #flowersandleaves🌷🌿 to turn it into a full #chesttattoo! Thanks Jessie for letting me run with it...SO much fun! #flowersandleaves #symmetrictattoo #symmetricaltattoo #symmetry #geometrictattoo #geometry #colortattoos #colortattoo #chestpanel #chestpaneltattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowacity #tattooiowa #tattoocoralville #pinkflowertattoo #pinkflowers #pinkflower #stylizedtattoo

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!

Steve and Becca spoke to a group of students at Tate High School in Iowa City yesterday in the career class. We had lots of good questions and discussion about what it takes to be a tattoo artist today,and run a successful small business.#crossroadstattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #aroundiowa #tattoocoralville #publicspeaking #careers #tattooartist #initforthelonghaul #tattoocareer #29yearsandcounting #lovemywork #teachyourchildrenwell #giveback #communityrelations #goodexample #positiveimpression

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

Bob recently did this #kunai #dagger from the #anime cartoon series #naruto .This is the weapon of the character #minato (Naruto's father). Sean's arm has a bunch of tattoos from this epic series. #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooedarms #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #animetattoo #knifetattoo #daggertattoo #japanime #animeart

It just so happened that Steve's client,our buddy Rick was here to get tattooed when the electricity went out all over town! We just hooked up some remote power from his mobile repair truck 🚚🛠🔧and in no time we were back in business! Thanks man!👍😎💖 #crossroadstattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #aroundiowa #ingenuity #whenyougetlemonsmakelemonade

Check out the great stuff our buddy, the ever-cool and mellow Dan @schllbrg just gave us! He's a local #artist #friend with a very #uniquestyle.We always love seeing what other #artists and #crafters are doing!

People bring us all kinds of reference material for their tattoo ideas. This one on our buddy John Hamilton is pretty cool because he's had it for years and always wanted a tattoo made from it(with a couple of minor changes). Now when he looks at it on his wall it will be even cooler! #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #sunmoontattoo #sunmoon #thesuntorulethedaythemoontorulethenight #luna #sol #cosmictattoo #space #solarbodies #solarsystem #astrology #astronomy #themaninthemoon

Got some good photos today of this cool #halfsleevetattoo I did in 2011.This is a #drahthaar which is a type of #germanwirehairedpointer.They are used as hunting dogs.The numbers are this dog's registration,and this is him as a puppy and full-grown.Unfortunately he's now hunting in #doggyheaven, but his master still wears him proudly. #crossroadstattoo #nationaldrypowder #crossroadstattoostudio #tattooedarms #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #dogportraittattoo #dogportrait #dogtattoo #drahthaartattoo #colortattoo #colortattoos #puppytattoo #doggytattoo #germanwirehair #sitbooboosit #gooddog

I just got some healed photos of this #portraittattoo repair and rework I did recently. Original work was done elsewhere a couple years ago. This was a very challenging project but I think we saved it!
