Fun times this week tattooing flash from the past.  Did this first one off an old sheet of Bob Shaw flash on my friend Steve's ribs

Then the next day tattooed Sailor Jerry pinups on a father/son.  They got the exact same tattoo, so no point posting 2 pics of exactly the same thing

I was able to get a few healed photos of Heathers tattoo before doing a few minor touch ups.  Always nice when people come back for photos and touch ups!

I've known Jill for a while but haven't seen her in a long time since she's been living in Vail, Co.  Super fun tattooing this key and roses on her,  and just the key on her mom.  I'd also never tattooed a head until yesterday.

Tattooed this super fun rose on Kalum's foot last week.  Small cover up under there so we'll probably hit it again in a month for good measure.

Finished off Tamara's sleeve yesterday by tattooing her hand.  Super fun!  Excited to get photos of the entire arm.

After having a morning no-show, Dara came in yesterday and got this really fun wren and flower.  Turns out she live 10 houses down the street from me.  Double awesome!

Too bad, for whatever reason, all the pictures of the other side of this tattoo came out too blurry to use.  Sucks because it was a fun one, but I assume you get the idea.

Finished Keltie's 1/2 sleeve today and good thing since she's off to the Okanagan Valley at the end of the month.  Photo is 1/2 healed 1/2 fresh...  I'll find her for a touch up and a healed photo soon hopefully.  No questions, the tattoos I'm most happy with are usually done in the shortest amount of time.  3 sessions in a month and ten days, super awesome.  Thanks champ!  All the best in BC!

Stuff for Sale

Blog overload today...

I'll be doing a bunch of fall cleaning around the house the next few days/weeks, and positing stuff on the blog for sale randomly as I find it.  Some of my older paintings that I chose not to sell previously for whatever reason, books, some of my collection of paintings/prints, vinyl toys.... I have too much stuff and need to clear some space.

Today this 8X10 is for sale.  Playing around with colour and liquid acrylics 2 years ago.  If you're interested in purchasing it please email me at  Local pick up or shipping can be arranged.  Thanks!

SETCo Bound

I'll post this on other social media things later, blog first.  I'll be back at Sanitary Electric Tattoo Company tattooing with my good friends the 16-20th of Oct.

I still have a few 3 hour apts available.  Smaller sized preferred of American Traditional or Nature themed tattoos.

I'll also be bringing a book of hand painted flash I've been working on.  There are 8 sheets so far, hope to have at least 15 done before the trip, so 50+ designs to chose from.

Email me at to set up an appointment


Super fun tattoo on Kyley's foot a few weeks ago.  I'm fairly sure her apt for the other foot is coming up soon as well!

Just going through all the older photos on my phone.  Excited to work on Kevin's arm again soon!

All of my apts canceled today, so I'll post this before starting drawing.  Dan is a beast!!!   Finished up his front a few weeks ago, just touch ups and fine tuning before I can get healed pics.  Super fun!

Outlined the lower half of Mario's arm today.  Had extra time so we colored some trees, clouds and most of the wolf's head. 

Thursday, July 4, 2013


Perfect timing on Matt's part, he was emailing me to see if I had any cancellations just as my appointment was canceling.  So today he got two fun little traditional pieces.  Thanks again buddy!!!

Back on the blog with some exciting news!   For 13+ years I've attempted to do most aspects of my job as a one man show.  That's all well and good, but looking at the bigger picture, most of my idols in art are not one man shows.  They have one or sometimes even a team of people working behind the scenes.  So that's the decision we've made, and by we, I of course mean myself and lovely wife Teagan.  I feel I've taken the "one man show" thing as far as I can.  There are somethings I'm good at, there are some things I'm not so good at... so obvious solution is to get help and keep moving forward.

For the past few weeks, we've made the transition and Teagan has not only taken over all of the emails, but all of my bookings and scheduling as well.  I'm sure there will be a few mix ups along the was as with any changes in life, so we SUPER appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!

Personally, this has been one of the best changes to my life ever.  Teagan is heavily tattooed, she loves tattooing, she understands tattooing, and best of all, she completely understands what I love about tattooing.  So absolutely no explanations or hesitations required for me, she took off running and has sorted and fixed most of the mess that I created.  She also knows simple things like how long a sleeve takes, how much ribs suck, what will and won't age well over time, etc.... So again, absolutely perfect and extremely happy that she is helping me out now.  This takes a load of stress off of me and allows me to spend more time on drawings and paintings and hopefully things like updating the blog.  Life and work are definitely going in an extremely positive direction as far as I'm concerned. It takes a load off of my mind knowing that while I'm drawing, emails are not being neglected as they were before.  

So please keep sending new requests for tattooing!  Emails will now be checked and replied to on a regular ( no... not hourly...) basis.  If you have existing work and require an appointment, send us and email to book in!  Because someone organized has taken over, bookings are now 2-3 months out.  Last time I checked Teagan was booking Aug/Sept for tattoo appointments.  I've never been booked that far out, again, because I've never been organized enough to be booked that far out.  Exciting stuff!

Say "Hi" to my lovely wife Teagan!  She's the best and working hard behind the scenes keeping things/me on track.   I can't thank her enough for doing so!!!
Now... I've finally backed up my phone and loaded 5000+ photos... lets see what we've got...

I know it's short notice as usual... but I had a bunch of random mid month cancellations, so I 'm heading out to Vancouver to work with my friends at SETCo to attempt to finish off a few older tattoos.  Because it's such sort notice, space was limited and is already fully booked up.

However, as always the word has gotten around and I've received numerous emails regarding setting up an appointment.  I would be more then happy to meet up with anyone for a consultation this time around as I will plan a second trip hopefully in June/July.

If you are interested in meeting up for a consultation, I'll be at the studio April 16-20th.  Consultations will be taken by appointment only.  To book, please click here and follow the instructions and please put "Vancouver" as the subject.  A deposit will be required at the time of the consultation.  

Here's some new work from the last few weeks.  Thanks again for looking!

sometimes I miss my blog but I have a serious problem with time in my life right now... mainly that I don't have enough of it to do everything I want to do and still live a healthy life.  I'm working on it as I'm sure most of us are...

I really like this tattoo and the person it's on.  Whenever I think about updating my blog I think of this tattoo, so after 3 hours of answering emails today I decided to post it.
