Hand-crafted awesomeness  was received in the mail today!!!!

As well as some tattoos from the past week.

I did not initially do these letters, but they’re there and needed to be incorporated into the sleeve.

I also got to do a tattoo AND finish it the same day!  It’s nice to have these once in a while.


After the Storm

Work has resumed and I’d like to say thank you to everyone who’s contacted me this month eager to get tattooed.  It’s encouraging to see so many folks not letting Isaac hold them back and to pick up their lives and trudge on.

Walter was supposed to get tattooed last month but the storm delayed our schedule.  Luckily I was able to work on him this past week and we created this fun flesh wound starring none other than the pack leader himself, the Gray Wolf.  Progress was made on some other designs as well, but nothing was finished.

Biting Frost

The All-Father rendered in the flesh.  We put almost 4.5 hours into this today and still have a ways to go.

Odin’s birds are known to be Ravens, but the interesting point of doing them as Swallows was to: 1) Swallows work into the idea of Traditional tattoo imagery more frequently and 2) Swallows are smaller in size compared to Ravens.  Their exaggerated-small size really adds to this notion of Odin being more Giant-Size or Godly than of mere mortal stature.
