Loved this wise ol’ owl piece that knows time is the ruler of his days. Is there ever enough?? #webgallery ...

Remember when tattoos didn’t always have to impress and when they were just fun and flash-like. I miss that time honestly. I have had a real issue seeing what social media has done to our craft. I see so many pieces of art and can’t tell who did them anymore. They all look the same. I’m getting back to loving what I’ve done for so long. They don’t all have to be a back piece done over a weekend! #heiheitattoo #heihei #moana #backtobasics #lovewhatyoudo #dontcompeteforattention #saysme #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 #webgallery #dogsofinstagram #mansbestfriend ...

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 ...

Let's pay attention to the fact that it's fall and 91 degrees out. Also, look at this cat! #eternalink
