I did a really fun/funny small tattoo on my friend Steve this morning, but the photos were all out of focus and crap... Second appointment today was Lindsay's hot air balloons.  A few touch ups and healed photos and we can call it done.

Kurtis was the first Canadian to break the 8 minute mark in the 800 freestyle swim which was 7:58.63 back in 2003.  Pretty cool... I can't say I've ever come close to setting a world record in any sporting discipline, and most likely never will...

My friend Andrew was in town for the holiday season and wanted to book an appointment, so I tattooed this small memorial for one of his dogs today.


Hope everyone had a good Christmas yesterday.  According to my Instagram feed... I had a few drinks over the last few days... back to work tomorrow...

Worked on a really cool rose today... but the pictures are completely unusable.... so shinny....

After my appointment, we had a surprise visit from our good friend Mr Jesse Young.   To add to the surprise, he brought me an early Christmas present.  Thanks a bunch Jesse!

I'm not bringing a laptop to Chicago with me tomorrow,  so I'll just post a bunch of photos when I'm back on Wednesday.   Ribs, round 2...

Here's a small portion of a 3/4 sleeve I outlined today.  Sherri sat like a champ, I'm just to lazy to edit all of the photos together tonight....

Tomorrow this peony will perform magic and change into a lotus... because she didn't want a peony in the foreground.

As the days get closer and closer, I find my self becoming more and more preoccupied by thoughts of going back to get tattooed this Tuesday.  I can never really understand anyone who claims to have "forgotten" about their tattoo appointment.... my body knows what's about to happen well in advance before it's about to get tattooed...

Black metal and upside down crosses seem pretty popular in tattooing these days... so Teagan helped me fix a few things I obviously missed in my line drawing for tomorrow...

Did this small skateboard tattoo on Justin today.  Super fun to tattoo, especially the grip tape.

Added the patterns to Brian's sleeve today.  Forgot that the battery charger for my camera is still packed away from my trip to Vancouver, so I had to use my phone's camera today.

I had a cancellation today, so Teagan and I went to see the new Muppet Movie.  If you have a soft spot for the Muppets, you won't be disappointed.


Quick day at the studio today.  Finished outlining Tessa's back/ribs.

Josh texted me today to let me know that he felt left out that his photo didn't make the last blog post.  Truth of the matter is that none of his photos really turned out that well... but to make him happy, here's the best of the bunch. 
 Tattooed this fun little one shot today on Matt
