Here's two more from Vancouver.  Thursday I tattooed a few chickadees on Hanna. 
Friday I worked on Ted's sleeve.  I tattooed the tiki on him a few years ago.

I'm back from Vancouver safe and sound.  Had an AMAZING trip working at SETCo with Chad and Dax.  Tomorrow I'll go through the rest of my memory card from the trip.  For tonight, here's Mary's tattoo which I finished on Wednesday.

Appointments today had to cancel at the last minute.   So I spent most of the day slowly packing for my trip to Vancouver this week.  All packed up and off to bed so I can hopefully be on the road by 5am.
My cat misses me already...


Today's doings- Added another little connecter piece to Rodney
Finished this add  on to Alison's arm that we hadn't worked on in about a year.  We figured out today that the original robot half sleeve is about 7 years old.   Always good times tattooing Alison.

...even though my tattooing is fully booked, come visit me at Chad's shop next week.  I'll be bringing T-Shirts, flash, stickers, etc for anyone interested.

Kevin was back in today to finish off what we started a few days ago when the power went out on us.  Finished the green peony on the inside of his arm.

Tattooed this girl with horns on Chelsey today.  Everything went super smooth... no power outages... no pigment explosions... client sat great... pretty awesome.

Here's the first tattoo I did yesterday... the one where I dropped the bottle of blue 30 minutes away from being done....  Although I'm not happy it took me forever to clean up all that blue, I'm really happy with the tattoo.


No tattoo photos today.... tomorrow...

Just got home from 4 hours of cleaning up this mess.  During my first appointment today, I accidentally dropped a full 6.8 ounce bottle of dark blue, and the bottle broke when it hit the floor, exploding everywhere...dark blue concentrate... everywhere...
Good thing it's 2011 and everyone has and iPhone with and amazing camera.  Photo credit to Chelsi.

Interesting day today....

Started colouring Kevin's arm today.. and about 30 mins into the session, the power on the entire block went out for well over 2 hours.  Super shitty... but at least all I was doing was colouring... It would have been horrible had we been 2 lines into outlining a half sleeve.  Unfortunately, this was all we got done today... I know there was obviously nothing I could do about it... but I still felt pretty bad...
After the power came back, I tattooed this rose and horseshoe on Brad for his daughter.  The power stayed on the rest of the day... which was awesome.

That's a lot of 1's up there....

Anyways... I'm super excited to get the opportunity to head out west at the end of the month and work with Chad Woodley at his studio Sanitary Electric Tattoo Company.
Coloured in John's wild rose today.  Super fun.

Sometimes it's amazing what you find when searching for reference photos.  Found this searching "goat horns"

Outlined Sarah's backpiece today.  It's much bigger then the photos show... it goes halfway down her leg.  Sat like a trooper.
...then I hung out and had a beer with Simon and watched him freehand a chrysanthemum add on to a tattoo he did last time he was in Edmonton.  Sad to see this leave us and head out to Calgary this Tuesday....


Put a few more hours in on Rodney's front today.  It's getting there but there are still a lot of small tweaks I'd like to do before calling it "done".

Patroller above Windy Gap, on the way to Boomerang- Lake Louise Alberta - Nov 1, 2011

From this photo... I'd say things are looking pretty good so far...


Simon's back in town!  Watched him tattoo for a few hours, then went our for an amazing night of beers, whiskey and food.  Thanks Simon!  I owe you one!
