This is a gallery of my favorite recent colorwork. I love trying new things with color, especailly graphic style pops of color.
Let me make an awesome piece on you!
I love this image and was so grateful to Holly for getting it tattooed! This is not the finished piece so check back again to see the final picture!
Melissa got stung by a jelly in Spain! The wound looked horrible, but that tattoo is smooth as can be. I'm obsessed with how it turned out. She's the best!
I adore this piece. Casey picked this drawing out of sketches I had made and we customized it with color to suit her needs. Thank you for getting my work!

We've been working on this for some months and it is finally complete! It feels so good to see a finished sleeve that I got to take part in! Thank you Sam for your trust and patience.
Couples tattoo on these walk-ins in Seattle. These were drawings the client made in 8th grade to piss off his art teacher. It worked. haha
Cherry branch on a lovely client in Seattle.
On my own leg.
This fun client came in with the tattoo pictured on the left and asked me to add some more flowers and brighten up the colors, however, after talking to her for a while I came to realize she really hated the hummingbird she had and so I offered to fix it for her. She seemed very skeptical, but after about an hour of drawing revamped the branch to coverup the old bird and we added a bright new hummingbird across from it. I'm very happy with the result.
This tattoo is a coverup of two old tattoos with an eclipse and her star sign (Sagittarius) and Chinese symbol, Rooster. Also, she wanted lots of watercolor space and honeycomb. it was very fun to design and to tattoo.
Hex loves coffee. And cupcakes. I loved making this tattoo for her.
Butterflies and the sweet smelling vine Maile. Growing exclusively on the Hawai'ian Islands it is used in lei's. All the butterflies in this piece are critically endangers species.
After we added color it really popped!
I filled in a back section of this mama's arm with Prickly Pear Cactus in bloom.
My client supplied a beautiful image of her cat and wanted her to be wearing a crown of succulents. I was delighted to draw and tattoo this one. Thank you!
This client wanted a Washington State tattoo, so she chose the state tree, the Hemlock as the inspiration for this design.
Japanese dragon on this first time tattoo getter. This tattoo isn't finished yet. I'll post more photos when it's done. I just love it.
In this design we used no black, which is not my favorite thing to do, but Martin has excellent skin and takes care of himself. Thanks for the good times, Martin!
This sleeve is all Polka trash style. "To Care" is the reason for life according to Martin Heidegger. Thanks Greg.
Ben's sister, Rivkabeth found my work online and commissioned this coverup of a large name on the side of Ben's neck. I am very happy with the results. Thank you Ben, you sat like a champ.
This tattoo is in progress on Tony who's neck I tattooed in Novemeber. We've nearly finished the bottom half and I am super looking forward to finishing this piece. He pretty much let me go wild on this one. He drinks all the water and has amazing skin. Oh and did I mention he sits like a rock? Well, he does.
I think this is one of my favorite tattoos I've made. Shea lets me do awesome tattoos on her. I had free reign on the design. Thank you Shea.
This client brought in a sketch of a girlface she liked and I added my own spin on it. She stipulated the flower types and the dreamcatcher.
Greg wanted my roses tattooed in watercolor style on his biceps. Greg sits like a champ every time. Thanks love.
This is the completed upper arm.
The second part of Martin's sleeve has been super fun. He gave me a lot of specific stuff but let me have a lot of free reign to make the design look good. Shell was a supplied image by the client. Mandalas are my own designs. This tattoo is not finished yet.
This one makes me happy. On Martin one of my favorite clients. Thanks Martin.
Barry and I collaborated on this Japanese/Ogermon tattoo. He's great to work with. Thanks Barry.
