I got to tattoo the love of my life today, my life and business partner, the one and only Becca!😆 She loves #monarchbutterflies and now she's wearing a male and female pair. Happy birthday my love😙, I hope the pain I caused you today is the worst I ever do to you (she said it wasn't bad at all!☺) #monarch #monarchbutterflytattoo #igrowmilkweed #milkweed #butterflytattoo #butterfly #crossroadstattoo #nationaldrypowder #powderpigment #boldwillhold #oldschool #crossroadstattoostudio #tattooiowa #tattoonorthliberty #tattoocoralville #tattooiowacity #iowacity #univercityofiowa #coralville #coralvilleiowa #butterflygarden #butterflies #butterfliesofinstagram

#Laceworkandpearls as a tattoo!! Steve did this on our good friend Ashley in 6 hours with only a couple of very short breaks! It was a real exercise in #linework but so much fun! Thanks Ash for always trusting me and getting such cool work! #laceworktattoo #laceworktattoos #lineworktattoo #lineworktattoos #blackwork #blackworktattoo #delicatelace #crossroadstattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #tattoonorthliberty #tattooiowa #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #univercityofiowa #iowacity #coralvilleiowa #coralville #blackinkonwhiteskin #blackinkonpaleskin #blackandgreytattoo

Bob stayed busy today working on our buddy Dave, adding the second dragon and the #devilhead in the center for #symmetry .Bob also did the cool #harrycaraycubs logo a while back (sorry it's not a better photo...) If you want some nice #linework Bob's the man! More to come on this project. #devilheadtattoo #symmetrical #balance #blackworktattoo #blackwork #dragontattoo #dragontattoos #cubslogotattoo #chicagocubs #harrycaray #cubbies #cubbies🐻 #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowa #iowacity #tattoocoralville #tattoonorthliberty #tattooiowacity #coralville #northliberty

#wordstoliveby #donotliveinfear With everything in our world so #upsidedown and #insideout these days, it's good to have some encouraging words to keep us positive!

Swipe right! Before/Stencil/After done by Steve this week. A tricky #coveruptattoo #reworktattoo on our longtime friend and loyal client Cassie. We left room on the lower right for a future project so that's why it looks unbalanced...(I promise, I didn't have my head angled funny, but I have been known to hold my mouth a little sideways while I work sometimes,😂😂😂) #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowacity #tattooiowa #tattoocoralville #repairtattoo #reworktattoo #watercolortattoo #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #nolongeratrampstamp #lowerbacktattoo #lowerbacktattoos

What do you do when you're turning 90 years old (young!) and you want to remember the day? Get a tattoo of course! It's for her dog, named "Happy Jack". I first tattooed Neia for her 80th, and when @ryanspangler worked here he gave her her first one. She says she wants a FULL SLEEVE for her 100th birthday! ! Thanks Amy (her daughter) and Chris for bringing her in, and for being such a cool family all these years! #ilovemyjob #tattoofamily #nevertooold #youngatheart #youngatheart❤️#crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #tattooiowacity #tattooiowa #tattoocoralville #iowacity #coralville #weinerdog #weinerdogs #weinerdogtattoo #dogtattoo #dogtattoos

Sorry we haven't posted anything lately, but we'll get caught up soon! Here's a cool piece Steve did in April. Our buddy Aaron's daughter's name is Shae, and her nickname is...you guessed it...Shae Butter! Pretty clever hey? Thanks man for the fun project!! #crossroadstattoostudio #crossroadstattoo #iowacity #colortattoo #coralville #tattooiowacity #tattooiowa #tattoocoralville #nametattoo #nametattoos #butter #buttertattoo #buttertattoos #foodtattoo #foodtattoos #playonwords #nickname #nicknames #shaebutter #coollettering #letteringtattoo #letteringtattoos
