New York Adorned

I just updated my gallery on the New York Adorned website. A bunch of the photos haven’t been published before… check it out here.

back piece tattoo

Kelly came to me a while back wanting blossoms on her ribs. Then she decided she wanted to do a cover up on her lower back so we added a bird. Some time later she realized she needed another bird… and then another… and then maybe some more blossoms. So there you have it, a back piece in 6 steps! Not the way I would normally approach a back piece, but because Kelly is so loyal and awesome, I’ll always make an exception.

Black and grey week

 Can’t go wrong with a skull and roses

We started with the portrait and added the birds and flowers later… I also did a portrait of his dad on the inner arm

Dream Crusher. Her first tattoo and she sat like a champ

My take on a tribal turtle

Laurens sleeve

I have a lot of clients coming to me for half sleeves, and I love doing them… usually 2 or 3 sessions at most, and the upper arm is a great place for a big tattoo. I’d say about 9 out of 10 of these clients come back within a couple of years (or months in some cases) wanting to extend the tattoo into a full sleeve. That was the case with Lauren, who traveled from Portland Oregon for an all day session to finish up the half sleeve we had finished about 2 years ago. Luckily for me I’ve gotten used to people coming back for more and have started drawing most of my half sleeves to accommodate the inevitable extensions.
