Half Sleeve – The Process

Bigger tattoos take multiple sessions to complete. Each session is a progression, starting with line work and making its way through shading, background, and color, depending on the piece. Our client Jim came in for his first tattoo, a dragon half sleeve and we took a few videos of the progress of the piece. Rich Cahill and Jim wrapped up the half sleeve today and we were all excited to see the end result.

Pagoda City Tattoo Fest


I always have a blast at Pagoda City Tattoo Fest and this year did not disappoint! It’s an incredible experience getting to work with so many talented artists and fun clients. The staff did a great job putting together the event and running everything. These are just a couple of the tattoos I did during the Tattoo Fest. I’m already looking forward to next year!

Fall Tattoo Round Up / New Web Site!


I’ve been Pretty busy the last couple of months. Working on large and small projects. Im almost done with Two separate back pieces. I have a handful of sittings on Rich, who I’m tattooing a straight on view of a black and grey dragon. Then there is Nick . I started with a cover up of a wizard on Nick’s right shoulder then he wanted to go full back piece. Im stoked! One or two more sittings on this one and we are finished. I have to get photos of various tattoos from this year. So I will post them asap. Thanks to my brother Dave at Rivernet Computers for the much improved website.
