Hey gang! We have some very exciting news for you all! Last year we had such a blast at our Halloween Charity event that we’re deciding to do it again this year! We’re teaming up with some amazing people to help donate money to families in need for Christmas, and we’re looking for your support! We will be releasing original select Halloween/Autumn-y designs from both Michelle and Blue. Designs will be tattooed **as is** for a simple $40 or $80 donation (depending on design choice.) This event is WALK-IN only, and will be on Sunday October 28th from 2 PM - 9 PM. Help us give back to Iowa City this holiday season! We look forward to seeing you guys there! (More information / design releases within the next few weeks. Feel free to message/email/or call with any questions.)

@blue.lockhart just finished this brain piece for a client! She came in wanting just the top and bottom view of the brain, and Blue decided to add a bit of foliage filler! What do you think???

Here’s a little after / before cover up from @chelle515! The client still wanted her butterfly, but Michelle just made it bigger, bolder, and brighter! The last image is a concept sketch, but Michelle did have to draw on bits and pieces. What do you think!? -booking for Michelle (balhan515@gmail.com) and Blue (blue.lockhart@hotmail.com) available.-

This was a very special tattoo for me to do on our friend Darren. He and his wife Jenn recently lost their teenage son Peyton (also in a previous post) who was born with a very unique heart.The close-up is from their doctor's drawing of it. His actual #ekg runs through the wings of the #phoenixbird that's rising up from the ashes and cinders. Thanks Darren for giving me complete design and placement control on this deeply personal tribute to your beloved son, it was such an honor! #phoenixtattoo #memorialtattoo #outoftheashes #hisbodyisgonebuthisspiritliveson #tributetattoo #crossroadstattoo #colortattoo #crossroadstattoostudio #birdtattoo #hearttattoo #hearttattoos #tattooiowacity #tattoocoralville #tattooiowa #tattoonorthliberty #universityofiowa #nationaldrypowder #allaprimaink #allaprima #allaprimablack #ilovemyjob❤️

A client contacted @blue.lockhart about getting his first tattoo. He’s an Organist who also fixes Organs as well. Originally his idea was a music note in a shape of a heart, but Blue wanted to customize it a bit more for him! Do you have any musical tattoos??

@blue.lockhart produced this memorial tattoo of a Dove (carrying his friend’s initials) for one of his clients, who lost one of his buddies. A perfect way to carry someone with you, forever.

Had a great day working on and having a fun time with our friends Kim and Cheryl and their girls. Today is their daughter Hailey's 18th birthday, so she got her first tattoo, and I got this healed photo of Kim's arm.
