It was a pleasure creating this tribute to John Steinbeck for Erica. It features the Coastal Mountain Range and California Poppies, which is very fitting since Steinbeck lived and wrote many classics here on the Central Coast of California.
I had a blast doing this Smoking Popes tattoo today for Jered.

Finally back from a long weekend in Nashville, TN for Ink N Iron. It was action packed. Thank you to everyone who got tattooed and hung out. Here are a few photos from the trip.
The above tattoo is a design from Todd Noble's new book "The Look of Love". I really enjoyed tattooing it and I took a few artistic liberties with the face. If you are interested in getting any of the 66 ladies from this book or any other flash I have here at the shop, please let me know.
It seems that there is a negative stigma around getting flash (a painted design intended to be tattooed) off of a tattoo shop wall, but the reality is you'll have a nicer, more original tattoo with flash than you would with any google search or pinterest image. Avoid the current trends and get classic, timeless designs whether they are custom or flash. You'll thank yourself in 10 years.
