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...
