Tattoo videos

Sometimes a photograph doesn’t do a tattoo justice. Since the body moves and the tattoos wrap around limbs and curves, it can be a totally different perceptive when viewed in motion. Here are a few videos taken of Rich’s and Mike’s tattoos.

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.
