currently i work part time and as a guest artist in denver. i will post last minute openings on instagram stories :)
hi! please read everything that relates to your tattoo project. this will save us time and set clear expectations about the work that i am offering.
i can take on projects that have a clear direction. please know what you want tattooed, and where.
i am prioritizing predrawn images. this drastically reduces the amount of negotiation and email communication for both of us. also, you know what you'll get ahead of time!
with CUSTOM projects-
what helps me most is seeing images of work that i've done, photos from life (of animals, plants) or art in other media (paintings, printmaking). hearing no is good for me too. if a suggestion doesn't hit home, a decisive no helps the process along. please do not send me images of other artists' tattoos as reference. this limits the options as i will not replicate another tattooist's design.
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, dead, cute. 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 really intuitive and easy for me. i love always learning more about plants. the bigger the better!
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. :)
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, mythology, HANDS
etching style, blackwork, blackout, dotwork, blastover, illustrative, comic book, video games, witchy, occult, books, medical, teeth, glitch, experimental tattooing, nerd stuff, tools, ropes, chains, filler. i am really interested in tattooing people with pigmentation differences such as vitiligo, albinism, piebald syndrome.
you've made it through the first part of the maze!
if you wanna get some predrawn work or
bring me an idea with a clear direction and let me run with it or
have a design that's mostly ready to go or
want some stuff duplicated from comics, video games, anime
