Sketches for Billy’s Dragon tattoo by Matt Greenhalgh

Worked this drawing out for Billy the other day. We got the lines on, it took a while but he sat great. I’m excited about this project. The Tattoo looked very powerful on the skin and I cant wait to see this one develop. Thanks for checking it out sorry for all the sketches i’ll get some tattoo photos up soon. Matt

We could not be more grateful to everyone for your continued support of our shop over the past 2 1/2 years. So much time has gone by and we’ve had the opportunity to meet so many great clients, a lot that come to our shop based on referrals. That is one of our best ways of advertising is your support, and recommendations to others. It is always the best compliment to hear that other people have nice things to say about the shop. Through Yelp! and Twitter, and other social media we’ve seen the direct benefit from your reviews. Again we can not thank you all enough.

We get a lot of support from the community and the shop will be voting for the places we love and continue to help us out as well.

You need to vote for at least 5 business (it’s easy there are so many) to have your vote count. Please spread the word and vote before Sunday July 31st when the voting ends. ┬áThe tattoo voting is the last page section 5. Check out the survey here at Creative Loafing’s site.

milo tattoo

My good friends Tony and Jill had a baby boy almost 2 years ago now. This little hat was Milo’s first and Jill had wanted to get a little something for her little boy that was getting bigger each day, out growing all the cute little things he had as a baby. I loved doing this tattoo, I was not sure how I would be able to do a knitted hat as a tattoo design without it looking to crazy, but I love the way it came out. It’s just a little tattoo but it’s always fun to do a little traditional piece with good meaning for someone. I might also be so emo about it because they are good friends, and with expecting a baby myself before the end of the year it’s exciting to think about how much our lives are changed and moved by a new little person.

I have two kids and no tattoos, that made me the odd mom out on the socecr team, but I’m ok with living my life tattoo-free. yours are cool, though. just as in childbirth, I would think there are no gold stars for people who got their tats without pain meds
