Happy Tattoo Day to me!

Today I got more work done on my sleeve! <3 Its just the outline of the main elements of the top half of the design but its already looking so sexy. I can't wait to get the rest of the outline and some color blocking in a few months.

Serious stuff I have no where else online to write about.

Today (26/03/2014) Theres still some decorating to do but things are really comming together. This album is a peek at my life working as a tattoo artist at Twisted Artistic. In case your wondering yes, I wear the headlamp while I tattoo :)

The rough pinup design I'm working on it ended up looking kinda festive by accident.

Yesterday was my first day back at a shop after my surgery.
