Color Tattoo Portfolio

A collection of my work over the last couple months. My Color Tattoo Portfolio updates daily so check back to see all of my most recent creations. Please visit the specialty articles featuring Color Illustrative Tattoos, Pet Portrait Tattoos and Tattoo Cover Ups.

I guess I’m posting some older pieces for a bit. I was hesitating. But they deserve love too. #webgallery ...

I love doing fur kid tattoos. Whether they are still alive or passed over the rainbow bridge. They are some of the most loyal lives we will ever experience. This is my sister who had to put her girl down just before she came to visit. I was honored to do it for her. Thanks @allie740 #dogsofinstagram #mansbestfriend #webgallery ...

Reminiscing about this #fearandloathinginlasvegas tattoo I did a few years back. Too fun! @chadwhitsontattoo #webgallery ...

Let’s take a second...... I want to really show my appreciation for my clients that “get it”. Often I’m told by clients that they love my work and want me to tattoo them. That’s very much appreciated. They usually continue on to explaining their tattoo which is nothing like any of my works. Black and grey. Or photorealistic. I try to sway them to being open to my idea. But often times I just don’t understand the misvisualization. My client fit is always when someone lets me “do what I do”. Especially the cover ups. Omar has been through some shit. But he “gets it”. He’s sat through laser @absolutetatremoval to lighten both of his arms and all of his chest. In order for me to be able to do my job better. I can’t thank the people who let me do the coolest tattoo I can for them. Never limit creativity! Why would you when it’s permanent. Thank you to everyone and anyone that has let me create what I love. #webgallery ...

Free handed this pirate skull buddy today! I did not do the stuff around. About 3 hrs with marker time included. #jollyroger #pirate #skull #waves #crossedswords #eyepatch #webgallery ...

California poppies with an osprey skull. More like this please! #webgallery ...

Today I had an awesome walk-up! Love when a client tells you what they want and let you do it in the style you feel fits best. And also agree to your rate. It’s nice when it all just flows together. Thanks Leon! @musink_tatfest #tiger #cattat #musink2018 #webgallery ...

Yesterday’s B.S.! Super fun one I did on a client that flew out from the Midwest to acquire some of my work. #webgallery ...
