TEN YEARS GONE

Hello friends. I hope you and yours had a lovely holidays. The end of 2012 marks many things, but also my ten year anniversary of living in this beautiful place. January so far has been so busy! So many new projects for you to check out. Also, I am booking into April/May right now so if you want to schedule something before the sun comes out, get in touch with me. If I owe you an email, I am so sorry for my negligence. I have trouble hanging with every email that comes through and sometimes things fall through the cracks. Feel free to send me a follow up email and nag me a bit.

Anyways, happy new year.

First tattoo of 2013 was on my dear friend Essence. She came up from the bay area to get this tattoo of her kitty. We met in 7th grade! So awesome to get to tattoo and hang out with an old friend.

As you can see, I’ve been doing a LOT of botanical work lately. I am loving it! Pretty excited about doing some traditionally influenced pieces in between, and animals too. If anyone wants any Angelique Houtkamp flash, get in touch! I really want to tattoo one of her pieces.

“Let the good times roll” NOLA tattoo on my friend Azmo. Amzo sat like a champ and brought me plants and chocolate and coffee. Thanks Azmo!!!!

This was so fun. This was based on a drawing from a comic book (that I can’t remember the name of). When I post healed pics I’ll have a proper reference.
