old larimer street tattoo
hi! please read all of this page and any subsequent links that relate to your tattoo project. this will save us both time, and set clear expectations about the work that i am offering.
i am not the right artist for everyone. i am prioritizing projects with a clear direction meaning you know what you want, how big, and where. of course there is some wiggle room to customize the piece on both ends.
i am also prioritizing predrawn images, which are shown on my my instagram. my current portfolio & booking timeline are available on instagram as well.
if you need a lot of hand holding through the process, or if you want to see previews, i may not be the right person for your project. i want to tattoo you if you like the work i make and trust me to make cool decisions for you.
it helps me to refer to projects i've done with elements that you like/want to include. hearing no is good for me too, so if there's something i like doing that you want to avoid, or my suggestion doesn't hit home, a decisive no helps the process along.
if you are passionate about a subject and think you can teach me something new about it, i can be convinced to go outside of my usual material.
right now i am pursuing tattoo work that incorporates these topics :
sketchy, etchy, colorful, & dead. i usually work directly from a reference photo, or several. i have a great collection of images - please share yours if you have favorites. consider the mood that you'd like your animal to show.
plants are usually the easiest, most intuitive design for me. i like to do email consultations for these most of the time, because if you have your plants picked out i can have options for you ready at your appointment and save us both time.
i have studied plants pretty extensively and am stoked to learn more about them from you.
large work takes priority. i love lettering that is large, conceptual, experimental. i have a lot of ideas for projects here, & welcome yours as well. the content is your choice. if you want a small text tattoo, consider getting it in the same session as a larger tattoo.
i like learning about geometric methods and concepts, so you get bonus points if you can teach me something about geometry. these clients brought in unique ideas for me to incorporate. i don't really care for "sacred" geometry, though i could be convinced. :)
this is a relatively new interest, as i now work with a number of talented portrait tattooists who help me learn. i'd like to do some black n grey or etching portraits, anything graphic/experimental. most interested in : science, politics, classic painting/sculpture, activism, history.
etching style, blackwork, blackout, dotwork, blastover, illustrative, comic book, video games, witchy, occult, books, literature, mythology, medical, teeth, glitch, experimental tattooing, nerd stuff. i am really interested in tattooing people with pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo, albinism, piebald syndrome.
if you like what you see here, we might be a good match. trust is important in the tattoo/client relationship - if you trust that this is the style you're interested in, then you can trust me to run with your idea once you figure out what you want and where you want it.
